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.
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.
Macksville is only a short course but well worth a hit if your
travelling up or down the coast.The course has 10 holes but has
alternating tees to make for an interesting 18 holes.The 2nd is a
short par four, but the second time around you play to the same
green but as a par three from a seperate tee area.The first is a
straight forward par 4 down onto the flat then playing nothing
more than a 8 iron to wedge in.The 2nd is a short par 4 dogleg to
the left.The front of the green is protected by a pond &
anything to far left is dead.A big hitter will easily drive this
green.3rd is a longer par 4 dogleg with a small pond to catch the
drive hugging the left side of the fairway.This hole normally
plays into a nor-easter wind ,so it can play long.4th is a great
little par 4 dogleg left.Place an iron down the middle with water
left & right,you will only need a 9 iron in.5th is a 201
meter par 3,again back into the wind on most days so you need to
catch all of this one off the tee.6th is a straight par 4 with
out of bounds on the left & water on the right.Again fairly
short hole,7 iron to wedge in.7th is across the creek par 3.Very
straight forward hole.8th is another par 4 hitting uo from the
tee your ball will land & run right so be sure to play your
tee shot up the left side.9th is a par 5 of 501 meters with the
fairway snaking to the right then left than back to the right
again at the green.If you wish to play the back 9,it is covering
the same ground but from different tees.Macksville is a small
club so getting a hit on most days at any time is not a problem.
