I played here last weekend, although the weather wasnt great it
was a good round of golf. The fairways and greens were in great
condition. I didnt find any bad spots on the fairways. All holes
had something different even though it may seem they run up and
down. I must admit that the day was better with my performance on
the back 9, may have been different if I finished off badly.
Played here recently for the first time and was left a little
disappointed as I had expected much more. I found the holes just
went up and back , up and back then up and back again. Fairways
were a little worn though the greens were in good condition. I
did enjoy a few holes but overall I kept having a sense of deja
vu as almost every hole reminded me of the last one I had just
the best course ever, greens in top condition, and fairways even
I have played this course a few times now and really enjoy
playing it. It is not a long course by any means. A couple of the
par 3’s are no more than a PWedge for a long hitter. You
could easily use an iron from the tee and still have a mid iron
into most greens.
The course is tight and accuracy off the tee is a must to scoring
well around this course. The greens and fairways are well
maintained. The danger with the greens is that some of them are
different speeds depending on the direction of the wind. I four
putted a green in their open championships after putting off the
green whilst putting down wind. It was so slick down wind and
then so slow back into the wind.
Apart from this it is an excellent course with a great social
side to the club. They give you $100 bar tab with your
membership. It has a fantastic catering facility that is often
used by the local businesses at lunch times.
I've played this course several times over the last few
months as it's near work and ideal for an 0630 tee off before
work to get the day started.
The course is short, too short for me in places as I find it hard
to hit a good shot when it's under 95m downhill. The front 9
plays about 500m longer than the back which is considerable
seeing as the whole course is under 5000m. The back 9 offers
several scoring opportunities and is good fun with plenty of
variation of hole layout.
At between $22 for 9h off-peak and $40 for 18h at peak times
it's a good value course. Maybe it's because I mainly
play this course between 0600 and 0800 but it's impressive to
see how much care and attention the greenkeeping staff take.
While there are quite a few bare patches on the fairway but the
greens, bunkers and treelines are always in great condition.
The highlight from me on this course was getting my first ever
eagle on the par 5 13th, a 30cm tap-in at that :)
One annoying factor at North Ryde is that some of the members,
especially the older gentlemen, can be quite rude. A few times
I've been accused of not carrying a sand bucket while
it's been clipped to my bag, and once I was challenged as to
whether I intended to pay for my round or not!
Booking a tee time at the weekend is usally difficult before 1400
or so but after that it's usually OK.
The clubhouse is fairly modern but the food is nothing special,
pretty sloppy chinese fare. Beer is cold and available.
North Ryde Golf Club is a nice, tight course, with plenty of
trees and some water. It rewards golfers who plot their way
around the course, rather than people who spray it around the
Although relatively short, it does present a challange, with good
use of bunkers and the fairways are undulating, rather than flat,
so many shots are above or below the feet.
The 5 par 3's are all challanging, ranging from 95 yards to
150 yards, with 3 of them being down hill tee shots. The two par
5's are long and challanging, with both requiring accurate
tee shots to open up the greens.
Speaking of which, the greens are in good condition all year
around, are quite fast and with nice variations around the pin
The last hole is a great birdie opportunity (par 3), typically
either an 8 or 9 iron depending on position.
Staff are friendly and welcoming, and the club runs a large
number of comps for members.
Would recommend to anybody who likes to think their way around
the course, rather than just blast it.
I have played his course numerous times and enjoy the course. Not
overly long but can test the weekend golfer. My playing partner
sunk a hole in one on the par 3 the other day. Good little course
and well worth the fairly cheap green fees.
Measures 5323 Par 69 from the back plates with 6 Par 3s ranging
from 130-185m, 9 Par 4s ranging from 280-415m and three Par 5s
ranging from 460-505m. Greens are quite good (and sizable here)
mostly tiered but quick and true speed. The teebeds were nice and
falt, with good grass cover and were the fairways, but some were
thinly covered in places.
The course has change immensely from what I remember, and for the
better. It feels like a miniature golf club, with some holes
needing a wedge to get there. Like on most good courses the par
4s tell a lot about the course character. Here the par 4s were
fairly easy, with some barely 250m, but has more emphasis on the
club selection. The par 3s are very simple, with many bailout
options off the tee. The par 5s are short, but have strategically
placed trees in some areas to make you hit a target on the
fairway, instead of just the boring tee to green play.
The course is short, but challenging. Water hazards are on 3
holes, with 2 in regulation play. The best holes are the 370m Par
4 4th with a water hazard 220m from the tee to a double-tiered
and heavily bunkered green. The 415m Par 4 7th has Lane Cove Road
on the left and water hazard 75m from the green. The 460m Par 5
13th has many bends in the fairway, and is the best challenge on
the back nine.
Played here on 7/7/06 with visitor green fees $32, which is not
too bad for value, but for challenge, you can do better. Can be
busy 7 days a week, as it is popular for all golfers.
played here on the weekend, had a great time. course is
excellent,greens are fast. A very challenging course. Price's
are resonable for the weekend, great course again thank you
Played here once and it was all good. Fairways are very tight,
you can use your driver if you are 80-100% sure that it will drop
on the fairway.
Course lenght is fair. Greens is very very fast. Bunkers are well
taken care of.
Weekend play cost you $37 for 18 holes which is not bad.
Will play again here for sure.
North Ryde isn't a long course but with it's tight
fairways and undulating greens it is a demanding course.The
fairways are immaculate all year round and the greens are
magnificent.It would be one of the best public courses in the
North.A must to play.
This is by no means a very long course but most holes have tight
fairways and slight doglegs, so you really have to be accurate.
Excellent course that is a decent challenge for the average
golfer. 7th hole long par 4 accross the dam is the standout.
This would have to be one of the best courses in north/western
Sydney. It is always well maintained and offers a good variety
of, mainly, challenging golf holes.
The pro shop and clubhouse staff are friendly and obliging, and
the bistro is excellent.
Certainly worth a visit.
With a well undulated and well maintained setting the course is a
solid 18 holer. There are a lot of different tricks and turns
that can catch your experience, the course is not exactly suited
for a beginner. With a good pro shop and respectable clubhouse,
the course is one I will play again.
North Ryde is a pretty course that is well maintained. The coure
is of a average length. It is heavily covered in treeline
fairways thay will cause a problem. Some of the par 4s a on the
short side but on the back 9 there is some long holes to compete
The greenfeas were $40 for a sunday afternoon. A bit much I
thought as you coud pay less for better courses.
The fairways are kept in very good condtions throughout the year.
The greens tended to be on the slow side.
North Ryde is a nice layout that was a plesure playing.
Not the most spectacular course you will ever play but very
enjoyable and the trees make it quite a challenge.
Fairways are narrow so you need a straight drive off the tee box.
Not a lot of water to worry about.
The par 3's are a bit on the short side however, you do not
want to over pitch them as you will find yourself in all sorts of
trouble with a couple of them.
The staff are excellent, very friendly and helpfull. Still one of
my favourite courses.
A pleasant, kykuyu based golf course, that is tight off the tee.
The land has a valley running through the middle of the course
& most of the hole hit from an elevated tee, down into the
valley, then up to the green on the other side. This tends to
make the course a little boring.
The 11th, 12th & 15th are short par 4's that are best
played with an iron off the tee. The toughest hole is the 7th
playing as a 416m par 4 with a very tight fairway.
