You know....this really isn't that bad a course. Sure it's no Magenta Shores but it doesn't pretend to be. It is a public council course which does a great job to make ends meet. That's why the condition of the course can vary throughout the year. Generally I find that when it has been reining regularly the course is green and lush which is all I ask for really. It would be great if there were a couple of more par 5's or even par 4's for that matter but I would prefer a challenging par 3 as opposed to a short and easy par 4 any day. Fairways a narrow, greens are smaller than postage stamps and usually elecated, some greens are also very well protected by bunkers so if you're a wild hitter forget about scoring well. You don't have to be a long hitter to play this course but golf shouldn't really be about hitting the ball long. Here is a challenge for you - pull out a driver on all par 4's and 5's and see how many times you hit middle of fairway....not often I bet. Personally I love the back 9 which is predominantly par 3's but you know what, when the wind from the bay starts to pick up making par becomes really difficult and club selection becomes really important. Over the closing 3 holes I often have to start my tee shot out over the bay due to the wind....pretty hard to hit those small greens. Take this course for what it is and you will enjoy it. Expect Augusta National and obviously you will be disappointed.

Worst course I have ever played. There was two inches of sand on every green and the rest of the course was a pile of crap.This course should be reserved for juniors or local drunks who call fore as they spray a ball into your ribs.For the love of golf keep driving to Massey or Concord or back home.

i live local and have played it alot over the last 2 years…currenty the course is in pretty good nick possibly the best i have seen it yes its short in metres but its still hard work to post “amazing” scores…you need to be accurate, as the fairways are tight, the rough is currently thick (and of ball eating deepth), the greens are some of the smallest around.. -the greens are mostly elevated with bunkers at front so yeah….... you had better bring you A+ short game because i play there so much when i go to a private or resort course it seem greens, fairways etc are massive… with targets so big it feels like cheating !

Measuring 3490m Par 61 with 12 Par 3s ranging from 90m-170m, 5 Par 4s ranging from 250m-355m and only Par 5 1st hole 430m. First nine is definitely more challenging & interesting than the back nine. The 6th hole is the signature hole with an index 1. Beware the green runs off to a creek behind. The 18th is not too bad either, anything left is in Canada Bay.

The par 4s are quite drivable off the back tees (except the 6th and 7th holes), where I played the course from. There are a lot of beginners on this course which makes it very frustrating if you are behind these groups. The greens are in poor condition with unrepaired pitch marks and play bumpy and slow. The tee-beds and fairways were good with a few dead patches. The rough is longish on the back nine, but overall not too bad a course for a short game practice.

Played here on 12/1/06 and paid $14 uni student rate & there are good rates around. After 4pm it is $16 otherwise it is $21 7 days a week. Would not rush back to play here, but if in the area you get better value here rather than at Massey Park, which is of similar length and within 5 minutes drive.
