Played there on the 8th June with a mate and ended up joining two
other blokes for the round who were members of the course.
I agree with everyone in regards to the physical length of the
course, the Par 5’s could be a bit longer but at the end of
the day it was still a good challenging course.
When I played, the Greens were in superb condition and the
fairways and roughs were everything I expected. The staff were
friendly, and the little food shop at the 9th hole had really
great hot dogs :)
All in all, a good day out at a good course. Would recommend this
course for someone wanting a change from inner Sydney.
Played there for the first time in a couple of months and was
quite impressed. The fairways were quite lush giving nice lies
throughout and the greens were hard fast making them a challenge
for all levels of golfers. Being a reasonably long hitter of the
ball and a person not afraid to travel, i have always enjoyed the
challenge that is Leonay. Unlike other courses in the area, you
can not just unload on every hole as you will most likely end up
in some trees and end up chipping out. It feels like every hole
here is has trees then houses so if you are extremlly wide you
can be in trouble. However on the oppisite side, being a shorter
course, it does not rule out shorter hitters from haveing a
decent round. I have played in some of the major open days and
seen some very low handicap golfers have some very high scores
Overall i think well worth a look for all level of golfers
seeking a challenge and a pleasant walk with nice veiws of the
mountains, Neapean river and a general pretty course
I agree with you LonghitterC2; the course is shorter than others
in the district and certainly a great leveller is the tightness
of the fairways. To me that’s what golf should be about;
not how long you hit but the accuracy and tact to navigate a
challenging layout. There’s guys I play with that carve the
ball left and right on wide open courses and don’t get
penalised. They need their radar switched on at Leonay. Place it
well when hitting of the tee and don’t miss the greens in
any no-go zones otherwise this ‘short’ course will be
As a someone with a 27HCP I recently played Leonay GC in a
corporate day and had a great time the length of the course still
had many challenges but allowed me to still be in the game unlike
some of these longer courses where I would normally struggle, the
greens rolled true and what you read you got congrats on a great
I’m surprised that Leonay has preferred lies in play
considering how much cover is on the fairways. I guess coming
into winter like all clubs the fairways will feel the pinch but
they’re in a great condition to compete with any clubs in
the nepean district. The greens are also in great condition and
are nice and slick. Leonay is known for it’s slick greens
and the course staff are living up to that reputation.
I have played at leonay a couple of times recently. The commenst
here are old and from the drought days. Leonay has a new
greenkeeper who has the course in very good condition. Its a
challenging course that requires straight driving…sorry
guys, you cannot hot the next fairway and recover. The club has
been renovated and all I I enjyed the experince very much and wil
be back soon.
play there on a regular basis nice neat little course and to some
of the other reviewers you try growing grass in full shade with
no rain for a year n see wot happens.Make a trip there in summer
for a good golfing day
i have to say i have never been a fan of leonay but at the moment
the course is disgusting never have i seen so much GUR on a golf
course that is without the work being carried out on the course
the temporary tee on the 9th was mud and rocks any area of
fairway not GUR was very bare, the only reason it gets a dot is
the greens which apart from the 16th were fairly consistent,
agree with previous reveiw don,t bother try royal werrington
The fairways are in poor condition, When only playing the front 9
youâÄôre left in "no man's land" to
get back to the club house. I played their for the last time on
the weekend after I was abused and threatened by two members who
didn't like being told to stop hitting up on us.
Played here weekend of 12/3/06 and played off back blue member
plates, and it only measured 4920m Par 67 with 7 Par 3s ranging
from 105-195m, NINE Par 4s ranging from 265-375m and two Par 5s
ranging from 440-450m. Course is flat and short with two distinct
nines. The short front nine lacks a challenge and options off the
tee, with similar clubs used off most holes. Most holes are
treelined both sides. The 185m 9th hole is probably my pick of
the outward nine, with a narrow opening with a creek and bunker
right (both not visible from the tee). The back nine is a little
more interesting with a four par 3s that need a different club at
each tee. The shortest hole 105m 14th is probably one of the
better holes on the course with a creek in front of green and
thick bush either side of green. The two par 5s are really weak
in distance and challenge with slight doglegs, but are generally
very easy to par.
An unusual layout with the 9th green quite far away from the
clubhouse, and with the back nine having to cross quiet
residential streets 3 times. The course is well maintained with
flat lush teebeds, fairways and slightly slow gently sloping
greens, but decent green fees for unlimited holes after 4pm $11,
may warrant another 2.5 hour visit if in the area again. Great
clubhouse facilities too.
I have joined this course having played golf for a couple of
years and have found it most enjoyable and challenging course.
You are punished for not hitting it straight because the course
has narrow fairways.
I wish it had some water hazards but otherwise I find the course
in good nick. I can't understand what the other reviewers had
I disagree with some of the other reviews people have made about
this short and neat course. This course is one that is able to
fool you on one hole while you struggle, where others are your
holes to improve and get back on par. This course has undergone
repairs and is anlways changing it has great potential and is
situated in a peaceful enviroment. I am a regualr playing at this
par 67 golf course and i will continue this because it has
improved my game dramatically. I think people should give it a
chance and really see its true potential because one day this
golf course will come into its prime.
I recomend this course to anyone of any ages.
I played earlier in the year and though it was potentially a good
little couse that was rough around the edges. Played there last
week and found great improvement, I found the greens played true
and the surface was the equal of any other course in the area.
The fairways are extremely tight which I found challenging
compared to others in the area where you don't have to be as
A pleasant surprise and definately worth a visit
I played here with our social club in early July. This was the
first time I had played here, so I was expecting nothing. I admit
that it isn't in the same category as Penrith or Glenmore,
but for a small council course, they aren't doing too bad.
You can avoid trouble by hitting something other than your
driver. For example, I play off 12 and parred the last 6 holes!!
Some of the public markers were very far foward (eg a par 5 being
reduced to just over 400m), so it would be worth seeing the
course from further back.
I agree with the first reviewer. The 9th and 10th are the best
holes for mine.
9th - Narrow par 3, with a creek right and steep hill above the
green to the left.
10th - Elevated par 3, with 2 bunkers right and a slope from
right to left. Very difficult when playing into the wind!!!
I do enjoy playing at Penrith more, but for a quick, social round
in the area then come here.
What can you say about Leonay Golf Club. Really it is the
laughing stock of the Penrith region they wouldn't reduce any
fees for me yet when my mate who is a member at Leonay plays at
Penrith he gets a discount. Cost $16.50 for a course that has
seen better days. Who wants to cross roads to get to different
sides of a golf course but to do it 4 times that is a joke. Never
playing there again and I recommend playing at Glenmore, Penrith
and Wallacia before there. Only play there if you are desperate.
Poor course short tight and holes all over the place go if you
Very disapointing to see this once promising club go downhill so
quickly. Rude ground staff, crabby fairways, rock hard patchy
greens and dirty half filled bunkers mean I will not be playing
here again, or recommending it.
The course now only measures 4920m, still with a par of 67. Some
reasonable par 3's -2nd 132m, 9th 183m, 10th 164m & 18th
193m, but the par 4's & especially the par 5's are
