I played this course on the 25/01/14 and came away impressed, and will be back again for a visit in the future. The staff in the pro shop were excellent and from the moment I stepped into the pro shop I was made to feel welcome. The course was in great shape. The couch fairways were wide and well maintained along with the bunkers and quick but true greens. If you get the time make sure you have lunch in the club. Great food and great value.

There are a number of bias reviews here so here is my unbiased reviewand remember this is the course review and NOT the forum for your personal issues and apologies Penrith still measures 6333m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 146-199m, ten par 4s ranging from 297-423m and four par 5s ranging from 477-523m. Penrith is a reasonably flat parkland-styled, wide fairways with a tree-lined layout. The course has lush Santa Ana couch fairways and teebeds, which obviously become dormant yellow with the frosts. There are mostly medium-sized bentgrass greens which are well-paced but are not fast by any stretch of the imagination. There is a natural creek which runs across the course with another 5-6 ponds in fact water comes into general play on 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 & 11. There are only 2 bunkerless holes on the course (at 2 & 11) with a total of 40 bunkers on the course. Highlights include: the opening 523m slight bend right 1st (index 8) with a few red-staked ponds around the green which makes it feel like you are hitting into an island-green which is also guarded by 2 bunkers; the 522m slight bend left 6th (index 9) with a slightly downhill teeshot to the shared fairway bunker left with the 5th hole and then a tempting fairway wood to the green guarded by 2 bunkers rightside just don't be short and be careful when laying-up as there is a small pond which cuts across the fairway about 80-120m short of the green; the 423m long par 4-9th (index 1) which bends to the left and is guarded by a bunker left; the 390m straight 10th (index 5) with a red-stake pond on the right off the tee to a green with 3 bunkers; the 199m 11th (index 3) requires a teeshot over another pond to a narrow 10m wide by 15m long bunkerless green; the 503m straight 12th (index 7) which plays slightly uphill with OOB homes on the far right to a green with 2 bunkers; and the 403m straight long par 4-13th (index 2) which plays gently downhill to the 2 fairway bunkers left 250-270m off the tee with the OOB Glenmore Parkway road, homes and fence on the right to a green with a bunker right. The closing 3 holes are also testy holes with: the 16th green being well-bunkered; the 17th fairway slopes to the right off the tee; and the 18th is straight with the OOB Northern Road on the far left to a well-bunkered undulating green. The stretch of holes 8-13 are probably the course's highlight. The front nine par 3s were reasonably weak but all par 5s were of a quite challenging length. Penrith is unique in that it has couch grass fairways, like at Twin Creeks and Macquarie Links and some other group 1 courses. Course access is from The Northern Road. Decent member only practice facilities with a practice range for irons in between holes 16-18 in which they call The Bermuda Triangle'. Overall, I agree with the 2002 review and despite the fact that Twin Creeks and Macquarie Links still top Sydney's greater west golf rankings, Penrith should be regarded as one of the better layouts in Sydney's greater west. Penrith is as challenging as Glenmore Heritage Valley. Played here 7th June 2012 with $30 weekday green fees & $40 weekend green fees. And remember, the mornings get quite frosty during the winter months. I feel for the club's future and hope they invest some money into maintaining its course conditioning, as Stonecutters Ridge golf course will open shortly, I think Penrith may get bumped further down Sydney's Greater West pecking order, if nothing is done to beautify its layout.

A fairly interesting suburban members course at the foot of the mountains. There is enough in the course design to keep the round interesting but there's also a rough edge to the course condition and a couple of holes that felt too much the same. I really struggle to recall many of the individual holes, but did have to think about the shots whilst playing them. Value for money at the rate paid which was $18 (a twilight rate I seem to recall).

The course was OK. For the price 2 and a cart for $36 you can not really complain, yes greens could be a little better and fairways were a little dry, but all in all thought it was ok. The issue I have had is that they don't have any clues of the iseek voucher. We were ok to play as fairly quiet.

I have never seen so much frost on a golf course. It was freezing cold literally at -1 deg C the day we played. I believe the course should be closed. But it was something different. Most of us enjoyed it anyway.

To the people who call Penrith "best in the west" i highly recommend that u have a serious look at not only your selves but the course in general as it is in the worst condition i have seen it in a long time. It use to be immaculate a few years back but the current greens staff have let it go. Do your selves a favour and head to one of the other courses in the area, as currently penrith isn't worth it. Note: reading other reviews about the greens staff laughing at players after hitting bad shots is disgusting and i hope the staff were spoken to and the issue is resolved.
