Not a bad track, could do with a little more work on the low
lying fairways at the back end/flat part of the course. Par 4's
are tight and require some thought off the tee most times. The
new 10th is a good hole that requires the right club to be used
as long or short will leave you with a tough chip. Greens were
quick to average with tough pins. Low light of the day was the
slow play by a corporate group in the middle of the comp field.
10 minute plus wait on most tees.
This course gets better and better, the greens are great, the
fairways are great, the tees are great, even the trees in the
rough are neetly prunned. This course has never looked better.
The new 10th hole looks great, however they can fill in the lake,
it has about 10 of my balls. Well done to the Club Captain and
the Greenkeeper for the condition of your course, it was a
pleasure to paly there, i will definetly play at Fox Hills again
I love this course. Although it is not a long course it is a
course that you can score well on if you can keep your ball in
play. The fairways are well maintained and green in good
condition considering the amount of traffic that this public
course can get.
The greens are well paced and a few well placed bunkers protect
smaller greens. This course does make you think your way around
for a good score. You can certainly attacked the greens and know
that the ball will hold. The course has a creek that runs through
the middle of it wich is certainly well placed making you think
about your driving options. You can get away with spraying your
tee shots if they are wide enough. The trees on this course are
not too tall that you cannot hit over them from the next fairway.
The course has a good variety of holes, with some long par
three’s where long hitters are hitting long irons in to the
shotest par 3 wher they are hitting SWedges. The par 5’s
are reachable for two but protected by both water and bunkers.
You have to play well here to score well.
The clubhouse is excellent and comfortable. The practice
facilities are excellent – especially the practice greens.
Not an overly long or challenging course at 5518m Par 69. Longest
hole is 480m 9th slight dogleg to the right with bunker on right,
and small dam short left of green. The shortest hole 97m 6th has
a large green to land on, and plays the easiest hole on course.
Few and far between are some challenges, but overall, not my type
of course. Strange layout when you cross the 9th tee twice and
the 3 par 3s section of the course, is seen a little often during
the round. To cap it off, you have to walk back down the tree
line of the 15th to reach the 16th tee - avoiding stray golf
Holes 9, 17 and 18 and probably my favourites here, all have
length and demand accurate approaches to the green, unlike many
other holes here.
Played here 10/1/07 and paid $24 green fees. Reasonable, but
course doesnt quite do it for me.
Narrow, straight, short and very up and down. Course was well
kept but a bit to much goat-track-ish for my liking. Is in
essence, a longer but better kept version of Bardwell Valley in
terms of the up and downs. And a very curious OOB ruling on the
Although a relatively easy layout this is a pretty challenging
course. The fairways and greens are superb. Not very long though
but the fairways are narrow.
If you can keep the ball in play you should be able to shoot a
We played here on the weekend of August 28 with our social club.
It is another course where we play at least twice a year. The
course itself is reasonably flat, so it is nice and easy to walk.
As it is a par 69, there are only two par 5's (1st and 9th).
The par 3's are a decent length - except the 6th at 97m.
The par 4's are all a good length at 300m-365m.
The two par 5's are different. The 1st is almost reachable in
2, where as the 9th is a typical 3 hit par 5 to reach the green.
My favourite holes are the 5th and 17th.
The 5th is a par 4 with OOB right and a creek (albeit dry)
running across the fairway just short of the green. The green is
small in size and is guarded by bunkers right and left.
The 17th is a shortish, downhill par 4 which slopes left to
right. You really only need a 3 wood then wedge here. There are
bunkers right and short of the green as well as water left and
behind the green.
All in all, this is a nice course to play at any time. They must
be doing something right because the club always features
prominently in the Major Pennants competition. State calibre
players aren't attracted to any type of course and club.
An reasonably enjoyable course to play...fairly straightforward
with no real surprises. Like everyone else has said the fairways
are mostly quite narrow with only a couple of them able to
forgive a wayward shot.
For me, the best hole of the course by far is the 17th - a
reasonably easy par 4, teeing off downhill towards a heavily
bunkered green situated right in front of a lake - very
picturesque indeed - you'll actually be thankful the bunkers
are there if you over-hit your approach shot.
Worth a visit, defintely, for relative beginners and high
handicappers but I don't imagine Fox Hills would really hold
much continuing interest for more experienced players.
They say you get what you pay for, but you can get up-and-down
fairways for much less than this.
I got the impression that the club thinks it's a good course,
even though the crammed fairways have you thinking more about
loose balls from other fairways than your next shot.
Straighforward, unchallenging, and unimaginative.
When I was looking to join a club in the area in 2001 Fox Hills
seemed the best value for money.
The course can be very demanding if you're off the fairway,
but keep it straight and you will have an enjoyable game. Sure,
there are some short holes, but they can be treacherous because
of the tight fairways and the hazards around the greens. Pin
placements often increase the difficulty level for those with
lower handicaps, so there is generally good playability for
golfers of all levels.
The greens are kept a bit on the long side compared to other
courses, and are sometimes not in the greatest condition.
Similarly, the bunkers are inconsistant from one hole to the next
- sometimes soft and fluffy sand, sometimes hard packed and
difficult. Lots of water hazards to gobble up your ball.
Unfortunately the promised re-design of the course has never been
implemented and any potential members should not believe that
they will happen anytime in the near future. On the up-side, the
course has not been affected too much by the drought because of
an abundant water supply, and is greener than most courses around
Your overall golfing satisfaction will depend greatly on how well
you are hitting the ball on the day.
This course is very tight and has lots of bunkers and if you keep
it on the fairway you will score very well.
A well kept course with medium paced greens.
Skinny fairways on most holes.
Par 3's are quite easy to par or even birdie with only
hitting mid to high irons on most. One only being 97 metres
Par 4's are very skinny fairways and need a straight drive to
keep it on the fairway. Only a line of trees between most of the
par 4's which can get you into some troblue. Most are in the
Par 5's are only the 1st and 9th both little dog legs, both
are under 500m but you need 2 great shots to reach the
greens(very hard to reach them).
All up a great course with some easy and some hard holes. A bit
of water sacttered over the course and bunkers and neally every
Extremely tight little course where you won't need the driver
much. Not much more than a single line of trees between most
holes, which can get a little dangerous at times.
The greens are small & quite slow & furry.
