Played here for the first time & as usual was very pleased to play a new course. I was left scratching my head however, about 2 of the par 5's (that you play twice each) & how the members would handle them in regular competitions. Firstly, the 7th & 16th holes are a long drive to see where you are going, followed by a funnel shot between thick trees left & right, that have a swamp hazard for feet, followed by a water hazard guarding the green in front. Then you have the 9th & 18th, which is an open first shot, followed by a choice of hitting slightly left & ending up in trees & OOB, or hitting straight or slightly right, with the ball hitting a ridge that throws your ball hard right downhill & a long way from the green. Good shots are not rewarded here. It would drive me bonkers playing this course all the time. There must be very nice beer at the bar afterwards to keep them coming back. All good for those that can handle it.

Macksville’s par 72 10 hole layout sits on a natural undulating terrain with a few holes seen from the Pacific Highway on the southern edge of town. Each hole is unique at Macksville with a good mix of parkland style holes and some that are bordered by dense scrub. The course features a few long par 3s including the 206m 2nd (index 1) with water down the left and a stream to clear 30m from the green, the 188m 6th and the elevated 194m 10th with a bunker guarding the right side of the putting surface. Other notable holes include the left bending par 4 5th/14th with a bit of water to navigate and the short par 5 7th/16th with a demanding tee shot toward a left bending fairway lined on both sides by thick hazardous bush all the way to the green. There is just about no room for error here and only three great shots will get you on the green in regulation.  Most tee boxes feature garden beds and the overall course maintenance is quite good for a small country course. Macksville sits halfway between Sydney and Brisbane and is a great spot for a rest on your travels and a round of golf with an interesting layout and reasonable green fees. $25 for 18 holes.

I love this 10 hole course and can see how it has changed over the last three years of so. It has only got better as time went on.The fairways have been widened and the rough is not so rough. The tees have been improved and widened. The greens are fast, well mown and often challenging. The gardens are lovely and make the course quite picturesque. It is really well maintained by a limited number of staff and a handful of volunteers. Work is being done to put in some extra holes. It is well worth coming off the highway to have a game if you are between Kempsey and Coffs Harbour.

Typical country-style golf course. Keep the ball on fairway and challenges will be few and far between.

Good Country Golf course. If you take into consideration that this is a small club with few members and only one full time green keeper you will appreciate how this course is maintained all year round. There is nothing like the feeling that you have a golf course all to yourself. 2008 see’s a new Golfing Board and they are starting to make a few changes to the course. I hear shortly there will be a complete new layout on the bottom 4 holes. Well worth calling in for a round.

This course is ok if you are after a game of golf with no wow factor. The course is in reasonable condition with no real standout holes. It is a little undulating. The most fearsome shot is up the 7th, where if you duck hook one, it will wind up in a B double’s windscreen on the Pac Highway. Give it a go if you want a cheap game and are not to picky about where you play.
