A tidy little 9 hole course. Not terribly difficult but in pretty
They're in the process of replacing the turf on the tees at the
moment, and the greens are in great condition (recently
A few of the greens have strategically placed bunkers to pick up
those wayward approach shots.
8th is a great hole, with water across the fairway directly in
front of a small green. If playing on the first time and you
played up the left of the 4th, you wouldn't even know the water
was there). Playing from the front tees, big hitters can probably
make the green in one (240m), but risk shooting through the other
Not a bad course, and well worth a social game or two.
Botany GC is great to play on to work on the short game or social
round with your mates. Greens and tee-beds were small and in poor
condition (many dead patches). Fairways were thinly covered with
green grass with many dirt patches, due to the high winds
channeled through the course. Teeing off on the 2nd/3rd/4th can
be noisy with trucks rolling past along Foreshore Road.
1st Par 4. 413 metres. Flat hole usually playing into the wind,
narrow fairway opens up with flat green protected by right-side
2nd Par 3. 146 metres. Straight hit required with 2 bunkers
guarding the green.
3rd Par 3. 132 metres. Like the 2nd hole.
4th Par 5. 431 metres. Narrow opening but opens up, leave right
to attack the green for birdie (or better!).
5th Par 4. 382 metres. Straight hole with smallish green
protected by 2 deep bunkers.
6th Par 3. 98 metres. Like the 3rd hole, but has larger
7th Par 4. 314 metres. Slight turn left, but no bunkers guarding
the flat green.
8th Par 4. 281 metres. The best hole. There is a lake about 220m
from tee, that guards the green very close. Most people lay-up as
there is no fairway, once past the lake. Chipping about 75m out
is difficult as the green is the smallest on course, and is
within 5m from the lake, also on that day (and most other days I
was told) was playing into a strong gale. Can ruin a good round,
if you get too ëcuteí on your chip approach.
9th Par 3. 214 metres. Quite a testy par 3 finishing hole with
right-side bunker guarding two-tiered green.
Played here on 12/2/06 (Sunday) and paid $10 for 9 holes after
6pm. Good value! Otherwise you pay $15 seven days a week for 9
holes. The blokes in the proshop are friendly. Play here in the
summer with a cool seabreeze for practice on the 4 coastal
At first I thought this course was fairly average, but after
playing it a couple times soon found that the greens on this
course were quite tricky.
A modest challenge. Worth a play.
This would have been one of the first golf courses that Captain
Cook came across when he first landed at Botany Bay... luckily he
ventured further inland and found the Lakes golf course :)
A pretty average nine holer with a couple of interesting holes.
Surrounded by roads it can be a fairly noisy place to play.
