Played there on a Sunday in May, spoke with the caretaker who was a great bloke.  Mentioned the lack of rain over the past few months made it hard.  $15 or 9 or 18 holes.  Only a few on the course.  Typical country course short with small greens with the fairways a bit patchy. 

Only issue we had was the 6th and 7th which are par 3's off the same tee box which we didn't realise so but made up for it on the second nine.

For a small town to have a course with grass greens is always good.  So if you are nearby stop and have a round.  Great little town.

And contrary to other reviews I did get my driver out.  Probably because I hit it better than my 3 iron!

I Play here with a social club couple time a year and really take my hat off to the all the members that get in and keep the course in pretty good condition considering the fees and location of course .I once carried a par four and the road and landed in the next paddock there so 3 iron from the tee is plenty .greens are usually pretty good .rember you are not playing Augusta .I love it !! And yes tight is a under statement as my mate once said (and i nver heard another golfer say ) I am glad all them trees are there to stop my ball going O.B .

Measures 2248m Par 33 with three par 3s ranging from 134-170m and six par 4s ranging from 246-363m. There are no alterate tee mounds to play 18 holes. There are 9 small-to-medium sized couch grass greens which are quite smooth and flat. The course has kikuyu grass tee mounds and fairways which are fairly dry in places with a few red dirt patches on the edges of the fairways. There are no bunkers on the course. 1st-334m is a straight hole which plays slightly downhill from an elevated tee above the fairway with a red-staked water hazard 10-20m short right of the 15m long green. 2nd-270m is another straight hole which plays slightly uphill to a 30m wide and 15m long green. 3rd-246m is another straight short par 4 hole which plays gently downhill with an OOB road on the road with a dry yellow-staked water hazard across the fairways about 20-30m short of the smallish green. 4th-308m is slightly uphill and gently doglegs to the right to a small green with subtle undulations. 5th-170m slightly downhill teeshot to a small green. 6th-134m gentle uphill hole with OOB Bligh Street / Davidson Street on the right to a 20m side green. 7th-166m the same tee mound is used as the 6th hole with a gentle uphill teeshot to a 25m long front-sloping green. 8th-257m gently downhill with a slight bend to the left from 180m off the tee to a green with kikuyu/rye grass surrounding its 20m long green. 9th-363m slight bend right from 200m off the tee and plays slightly uphill. There are some small pine trees at the dogleg corner and some along the leftside towards the green which can be used as a target area off the tee as the green is 20m long. The local rule is that "bare patches on greens are to be treated as GUR". This small volunteer-run club is not too bad with well-trimmed fairways and rough with reasonably flat tee mounds. The short-to-medium sized trees are no higher than 15m tall and give a sense of narrowness to the hole which require accuracy with your irons off the tee. There are shared tee mounds for 4th/9th and 6th/7th holes. Course access is from Tallawang Street in the town itself. There is some traffic noise from the Castlereagh Highway at 2nd, 4th & 9th tees as well as the 1st and 3rd greens. But as the course is located on the western side of town the speed limit along the highway is 50km/h, so noise shouldn't bother you at all really. Gulgong was established as an old 19th century gold-mining town with many historic buildings lining the main street today. Gulgong has around 2000 people and is approximately 475m above sea level about 30km north of Mudgee. Played here 10th April 2012 with $15 green fees. This short course should be a model for small country towns. The use of the small land for 9 holes is commendable as is the course conditioning.

Short and tight, but that's how I like them, women that is! As for this golf course I guess it's not too bad for a volunteer run job, $10 bucks for 9 holes, or you can go round twice for $18, make sure you pay in the honesty box or some gnarly old member will acost you on the greens. Greens get hammered by the frost, ok in summer, you can take the driver but you wont need it, this is one short course, decent fairways, no bunkers and heaps of trees, make this a challenge, worth a crack.
