With an ACR of 73, Coonabarabran’s 9 hole par 72 track measures almost 6200m is certainly no pushover. Although most fairways are reasonably wide in parts, it is imperative to get good distance an accuracy off the tee with a few long par 4’s which includes the monster 430m 3rd. The par 5’s aren’t as daunting and range from 437m to 472m but the 14th does have water right and a left dogleg with two bunkers guarding an elevated green. The par 3’s here are the real test with no easy tee shots. The 4th/13th has a hazard left and a large gum protecting the green and the 8th/17th has water down the right from tee to green and measures 190m on the front and 175m on the back. For a rural 9 hole course, Coonabarabran can be testing and the quiet bush setting makes for an enjoyable round of golf in Australia’s Astronomy Capital. $17 for 18 holes.
A good little 9 hole country course. The use of two sets of tees
to make the 18 hole layout is good and the holes play decidedly
different on the two nines. The 4th/13th is a good example of
this, a par 3 of 140 metres first time around, but a tough 195
metres through a small chute makes par a good score the second
time around. Greens and fairways were reasonable, the use of the
local preferred lie rule is not really necessary on most of the
course. Friendly members, we played in the Sunday comp with no
problems, visitors were made to feel welcome. Great value for the
Sun day comp with reduced green fees of $6 plus a comp fee of $6.
Normal green fees are $10 for nine and $15 for 18 holes.
Firstly I Should state that the course is a 9 hole course with 18
playable holes (different Tee positions).
As for the course considering that this section of NSW needs
water it is not a bad track. The course is lined with trees and
can be very tight in places needing a straight tee shot. The
greens are on the easier side with not a lot of breaks but are on
the smaller side so it takes a great shot to hit them in GIR. I
have a hadicap of 21 and shot 88.
Overall if you are in the area stop and have a go, 7/10.
