More challenging than it looks. Although there are four par threes, one of them is almost 200 metres long from the blue tees. The first par 4 is 400 metres off the back markers with out of bounds on the right for anyone who hooks. Greens are in good nick and pro shop staff friendly and helpful. Fairways are pretty scratchy as the local council refuses to water them. Good deal after three for $12. Worth a look.

This is a great little track,the greens are 8/10, you can use your driver plenty and there is some long tough par 4's and a soft par 5 to boost your confidence! The 9th is a 190m par 3 that you can always leave feeling proud to have made 3 on. The course also has a par 4 with a water carry 2nd shot and some great short par 3's that you'll have to give the club sellection a bit of thought about especially if it's blowing! The guys in the pro shop are friendly and there is a great little chinese resturant upstairs in the club house.

Played here today and it is a nice after work nine holes.Fairways and greens in good condition. A decent challenge but most groups on today had a skinfull of booze which made for an interesting round.

A tidy little 9 hole course. Not terribly difficult but in pretty good nick.

They're in the process of replacing the turf on the tees at the moment, and the greens are in great condition (recently upgraded?)

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 side.

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 bunker.

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 two-tiered green.

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 courses nearby.
