After not seeing Lane Cove golf course for a period of 4 months
over the winter I was really surprised at the changes that have
taken place. Gone are the synthetic tees on the 3rd and 7th. they
have been replaced with landscaped tees with proper drainage.
Greens are a huge improvement and are now nicely kept, as are the
fairways. There seems to have been a lot of effort gone into
improving the club and the experience for players.
The Pro Shop has also had a major overhaul with a new pro
installed and now there is actually stock that you can buy.
This is a not a long course but it can be quite tricky if you
don't get your shot placed correctly. I would recommend it to
lower handicappers wanting a quick practice round after work and
lower handicappers wanting an unusually hilly par 3 and 4
workout! The clubhouse at the end of the 9th serves good food
This super short course consists of par 3's and 4's which
is verysuitable for those who are starting out to play golf.
Despite being a resident of Lane Cove, I've always made the
effort to drive to Wakehurst, Cammeray and even Long Reef to play
golf with mates. Now I know why.
Pros: -Well maintained greens.
-Decent course if you're just starting out.
Cons: Where do I start?
-The 3rd hole tee off was on poor synthetic grass, which covered
a mount of sand. I ended up teeing on the very side where it was
-The whole course was pretty much all the same cut of grass.
-Despite well maintained greens, the players who play on the
course don't seem to know what "repairing divots"
-Finally, it took forever to play 9 holes because some people
just had very poor golf etiquette. The group in front of us was
playing like 3 balls each, hence making us and the group behind
us wait for longer.
Summary: All in all, this was a very poor golf course. The only
time i payed $17 for green fees was the time i played Lane Cove
(Being a student, I usually pay $11-12, but it was long weekend
so that was fair enough).
Don't waste your time and money on this rubbish course. I
recommend Wakehurst Golf Club for those who wants a real tester,
and a beautiful surrounding.
Played here weekend of 5/3/06 and played off back markers, and it
measured 1975m Par 32 with 4 Par 3s ranging from 110-195m and
FIVE Par 4s ranging from 255-330m. A very basic short game course
with an unusual hilly layout. There are 18 tees with 11 greens,
the 2nd/11th has two greens as does the 8th/17th when playing the
second nine. I played two balls, one for the front nine and one
for the back nine and finished in less than 2 hours (beats
playing front nine then walking around again from for the back
nine, when tees are quite close to each other). The course lacks
a signature or any quality holes worthy of mention. Green fees
are $17 for 9 holes 7 days a week. Not a well maintained course
with slow, pitch-mark ridden greens and football field quality
fairways. Some teebeds were under construction, so some news of
improvement, but not nearly enough to get me back there.
I have been putting off visiting Lane Cove for a fair while now
after reading many of the reviews here.
But with only the morning off yesterday, I decided to go check it
out and play a quick round.
Im not sure what i expected but the Layout of the course was
actually quite surprising.
The course is mainly Short Par 4's and the rest par 3's.
It is a fairly hilly course so be prepared for a 9 hole hike.
The course itself was very green and in very good condition
considering how dry other courses are looking in the area.
The greens were really well maintained and great to putt on.
The fairways were non-existent though !!
The entire course in ankle deep rough
Any ball driven will drop and stop where it lands as a result.
IMHO This ended up being a bit of a blessing in desguise (for a
practice round) as every lie was consistant and gave me a alot of
chances to practice recovery shots into the green.
All in all this course is pretty much what I expected from the
reviews below: A great course for social golfers and high
handicappers looking for a bit of practice.
Most low markers probably will not enjoy this course (unless they
are looking for a quick confidence boost)
Paid $17.00 green fees on a weekday
i am a member of lane cove and while not pleasant at times they
have recently employed a new green keeper and the course is on
the up and up and looking better by the day. with personable pro
shoppies and nice members it is great for an easy win on saturday
the course has room for improvement.
I have played this course many times due to my residence
proximity to the course. It is a course that is not well
maintined and gets alot of heavy unexperienced and at times
fustrating amateurs and beginners. It is short and offers little
challenge to the more seasoned golfer yet for beginners is a nice
easy course with short holes with little or no imagination. Great
if you just want some practice or a casual social game. A course
well suited to handicappers of 15+.
I have played this course a few times with friends and have
really enjoyed it. It's Good for a quick game if your short
on time, but pick your times carefully as this course can become
backed up very easily by slower players.
A nice and easy 9 hole course which keeps you amused with a bit
Complete Goat-track. Don't waste your time here for a game.
Fairways are terrible. Holes are boring and you are invariably
stuck behind a group of retards. Only course in Sydney that I now
refuse to play.
