Pretty nice layout. Had good, smooth but slow greens and a excellent array off both native and introduced tall old trees. A lot of water around the course which surprised me. About 80% off course was flat with slight undulation. The course looks short on paper at par 70 5774 metres, but there is four or five very testing and long par 4's that make playing under your handicap a battle. I particularly liked the design and bunkering of the course. There were many variaties of birds on the course, i must have seen ten, including a pelican, which was a bit weird. The fairways were the part of the course i was least impressed with, the grass a little scrappy and patchy. Personally i preferred Richmond to Penrith, it having better variety in holes and design and more lush grass plus better greens, and also a better setting It is a very quaint old course and arguably the best in the penrith valley. overall 7.5/10

Measures 5774m Par 70 (from the new blue plates) with five par 3s ranging from 145-178m, ten par 4s ranging from 253-399m and three par 5s 501m straight 1st, 465m straight 6th and 483m slight dogleg right 16th. Course is in good condition, flat and slow greens and tree-lined fairways. Some good strategic bunkering around some holes. Easy to walk this flat golf course layout. Open competitions are the same as Windsor (Wed, Fri, Sun) for $23 is great value for the visitor. Played here 31 May 2010 on a cloudy,drizzly, 20-30kmh south-westerlies day and paid $12 for Mondays (the same as Windsor). The front nine is not so challenging as the water doesn't really come into play -except 3rd/maybe 4th & 7th. What separates this course to Windsors is a group of holes on the back nine that is distinctively Richmonds. When you tee off over the large dam at the 178m 10th, you really beging to feel that your accuracy is required for your outward nine. Highlights here are 368m slight dogleg left 11th to an upraised green sloping towards the fairway. Holes 13-15 (Amen Corner - as the pro calls it) is quite challenging and suddenly the water certainly comes into play. Its like a different resort style feel...but the final 3 holes are much easier, so if have kept your head around Amen Corner, you can quite easily beat your handicap here... Back nine here beats Windsors, but Windsors front nine smokes Richmond for challenge and quality. I can not really separate the two courses, but I do recommend a round here at this very friendly club.

Plyed there in the Richmond Cup on saturday, for the first time and quite liked the course Par 4and 5s are weak but the Par 3 (off the back) are quite strong. Course was in good condition. Well worth a game there Better than Winsor GC

Fairly good testing course, with its fair share of bunkers on most holes to ensure that you need accurate approach shots. The greens were a bit soft, but ran at an even pace. Particularly enjoyable holes were the par 4 3rd (long iron off the tee or the driver across the water hazard if you're adventurous), the 9th (short par 4 where to reach the green from the tee, you need to thread it through bunkers protecting the front left and right - mid iron for safety), the par 4 14th (again, the option of a long iron for safety or a driver over water hazard, then approach to a large slightly elevated green) and par 3 15th (mid iron across water hazard). Variety of bird life adds to the character of the course - saw a few swans and even a couple of pelicans. $12 for Mon and Thurs after 10am great value for money.

Played there today and found it in very good condition. Fairways were nice, greens were nice and it was even a pleaseure to hit it out of the rough a few times as these areas are also well kept. Had 1 crow steal a ball but i can live with that. Found the course reasonably challenging without being overly difficult. Still managed to shoot a 91 on my first outing here. Best to go on mondays or thursdays after 10am as its only $12. I'll definately be back.

Played last weekend, enjoyed it. Great course. They should handout whistles or some thing as the magpies are a menace for the stealing the balls. Our group saw 5 balls taken away.
