great course. Not long but very tricky with true fast green that have many undulations and plenty of bunkers. Need to play very strategically. Great condition, well worth playing.

I played this course on the 22nd and 23rd of October. I only planned to play the one round, but couldn't get enough of the course and had to play a second time. The fairways, greens and tee boxes were all in fantastic condition. Some work is being done to get rid of the parramatta grass which was good to see. The rough is also well maintained and I can't recall having a poor lie in two rounds. You would be hard pressed to loose a golf ball on this course I managed to get through two rounds with the same ball. At times I felt like I was in a botanical gardens with the wide variety of trees and shrubs lining the fairways. As others have said the back nine is more interesting with more undulation. To date this is the best course I have played west of the Blue Mountains. Any golfer to visit the area should not miss playing this course and I would suggest accommodation on site at the Duntryleague Guest House which is a heritage listed building which was once a private home. Guests are entitled to twenty five percent off their round of golf.

Undoubtably one of the finest inland courses in Australia. Each hole has its own distinct character and is a challenge for any standard of golfer. With over 100 different varieties of trees on the course it is incredibly picturesque. A must play if you are in the area.

In my mind, 4.5 stars is a bit high for this course. The back nine is clearly superior to the front. The stretch from 12 to 16 is the highlight. Disappointed with the offhand service in the pro shop. Wasn't made to feel overly welcome unlike at the other two clubs in Orange. Also carries the highest social golf green free of the three.

We played in the local Orange tournament on the October long weekend, so all three courses were played. Unfortunately the weather for our day at Duntryleague was horrific, we had 45 ml of rain overnight and played with rain and hail, single digit temperatures and a biting cold wind. Because of the conditions they had all bunkers out of play as GUR and preferred lies in place. Having said that this is a good members course with reticulated good fairways and excellent greens. The course presented well, considering the conditions and had not much casual water, apart from the bunkers. The layout is interesting with a reasonable amount of water in play. It is a slightly undulating course, but can be walked easily. Because we played in the tournament we can't comment on the green fees. Of the three courses in Orange it is by far the best and worth playing if you are in the region.

The course conditioning and challenges at Duntryleague are the golfing benchmark in Orange. Duntryleague measures 5976m Par 70 with four par 3s ranging from 151-199m, twelve par 4s ranging from 281-431m and two par 5s ranging from 444-471m. Course has lush South African couch grass fairways with medium-to-tall tree lined fairways with over 150 different tree species over the course. The teebeds are a mixture of rye grass and kikuyu grass and are well trimmed. The medium-to-large sized bent greens are mostly 20-30m long and smooth with consistent speed. The green surrounds consist of rye grass and fescue in the fairway rough. There are a total of 42 bunkers on the course with only the 1st being entirely bunkerless hole. FRONT NINE highlights include: the opening 431m Par 4 slight bend left 1st (index 5) from an elevated tee below the historic guesthouse to a bunkerless green; the 353m slight bend right 3rd (index 9) requires a blind shot over 190m to clear the rise with thick trees right to a green guarded by a bunker short right; and the 199m slightly uphill 4th (index 6) with a bunker 20m short left and another guarding the greenside short left. The front nine is less bunkered than the back nine and is somewhat easier despite the opening and closing outward holes being long par 4s over 400m. The back nine is what defines Duntryleague: more undulating terrain with varied lies, more bunkers than the front nine and the 3 hardest rated holes on the course. BACK NINE highlights include the final 6 holes: the 404m straight 13th (index 1) has an elevated tee to the fairway below which slopes gently downhill to the green guarded by 2 bunkers; the signature 281m slight dogleg right 14th (index 14) with trees along the right guarding the big hitters from taking on the green. The fairway is fairly wide on the left to one of the smallest greens on the course guarded by 3 bunkers shortside and left with the pond collecting anything long left or over the back of the green. Classic short hole that could add a fairway bunker along the leftside to add more weight on your teeshot. The 389m straight 15th (index 2) is slightly uphill with tall poplars along the rightside and OOB further right to a wide but shallow green guarded by 2 bunkers; the 444m short Par 5 slight bend left 16th (index 18) is the most bunkered hole by far on the course and boasts the largest green at 30-40m long. From the elevated tee there are 3 fairway bunkers 250-275m off the tee in the left rough which comes into play with the left-sloping fairway to the bunkers then a gully which collects balls about 150m out from the large green which is guarded by 4 bunkers; the easiest hole is followed by the picture-postcard 169m 17th (index 10) which is slightly uphill over the same pond which adjoins the 14th green to a front-sloping large green guarded by 3 bunkers; and the finishing 364m slight bend left 18th (index 3) is slightly uphill to a front-sloping green guarded by a bunker short right. Overall the par 3s have well bunkered large undulating greens and are all challenging. Three par 4s are over 400m (at 1, 9 & 13) and the signature 281m short 14th is a great strategic Par 4 hole. All of the city's 3 golf courses are at a slightly higher elevation than the city centre itself. Duntryleague golf course ranging from approximately 870-890m above sea level with the clubhouse sitting underneath the historic guesthouse (built in 1876) which overlooks the course. Good clubhouse facilities also offering 4 clay tennis courts, putting green, chipping green, and a short 150m grass driving range next to the carpark off Rowan Street. Played here 23/03/2012 with $35 green fees. The club also offers $15 green fees after 3pm. Duntryleague is by far the most challenging and best conditioned course in Orange. Having a larger city population than Bathurst (55km east) and Dubbo (150km north), Orange is the largest city in the Central Tablelands and Central West Region with over 40000 people. Duntryleague, along with Dubbo's 27 holes and Bathurst, are amongst the best-conditioned courses in the Central Tablelands and Central West region of NSW. Highly recommend a round here.
