With only 9 Greens this course is enjoyable to play considering that there is no full time green staff.

The greens are in good nick and generally are small with some of the larger ones being a challenge to putt on.

With 18 tees the course is difficult to score well on... in particular the 6th/15th, a par 4 the first time and a 5 the second. A large dam protects the green which also slopes away from your approach, making a close shot to the pin very difficult.

The par 4 3rd/12th requires a blind shot over a hill to a green protected on both sides by large gum trees. The undulating surface of the green makes putting extremely difficult.

Overall, the course is not long but don't be fooled by this.

It can be difficult to gain access to this course unless you are accompanied by a member as it is security patrolled because it is a Defence establishment.

Played here at Orchard Hills GC (formerly known as RAAF Kingswood GC) on Saturday 11/3/06 and played off white mens markers and it measured Par 70 5344 metre course. 2635m going out and 2709 metres coming in with six Par 3s, eight Par 4s, and four Par 5s. Firstly, it has 9 HOLES and 18 tees, positioned around 50 metres or so from each other. I played two balls, one for the front nine and one for the back nine and finished in 2 hours (beats playing front nine then walking around again from for the back nine, when tees are quite close to each other).

A very basic short game course with a boring hilly layout that has its blind greens, with most of the holes either running down/up a hill. No full time staff on course so expect slow and bumpy, pitch-mark ridden greens and thinly covered fairways. Hazards include water (1st/10th, 5th/14th, 6th/15th). Cost is quite reasonable. $10 for 9 holes 7 days a week.

But should note that you need to call the proshop (02) 4736 1266 one day before your intended tee-off to be on the list for security clearance on the Commonwealth Defence land. Not challenging, but hope to see it get up to the standard of the Royal Aust. Engineers GC at Moorebank, sometime soon.
