Played a few times recently and was quite impressed with its
condition. The recent rain has put the greens and fairways in
good nick. Favourite holes are the long par 3 second, and par 4
third. Most of the previous reviews slam this course, but it
offers value for money, much better greens than most public
courses and moderately challenging layout.
Royal Rosnay as some of the memebers like to call it is exactly
that a members run club house and public council run course. The
course is one that many will find the testing material and if you
can run around on this course below par you’ll be doing
well when it comes to hitting the pro courses. with slow running
greens and enterprizing fairways the course will give you a run
for your money.
This course located at Auburn in Sydney is a tough par 68. The
greens are as good as you can get for a public course thanks to
the local greens staff. Unfortunately I think the council have
forgotton about the fairways which would have to be some of the
worst in sydney. Woolaware a km away has far better fairways.
Loved by the Koreans, forget playing saturday afternoon unless
you want a 6 hour round. Midweek is far better for quicker rounds
except if you get behind the ladies on a thursday morning and its
a stroke round. 2 stars only becasue of the greens
Played @ Rosnay yesterday with four mates (Yes - they allowed a
group of five to play with three carts!) and I have to admit it
was in a lot better condition than I had expected.
Fairways reasonably good, Greens were genreally ok. Some were a
bit harder and flatter while there are a few sandy bumpy ones out
I liked the mix of Par 3's (one quite short 89m, one long
220yds or something like that) and that long Par four coming home
is a tough to get it close. One of our group eagled a short Par 5
on the front nine so it offers you value for good storkes.
We ended up playing 27 holes - and although there aren't any
water hazards technically on the course, every one in our group
had sprayed a ball into the river O.B at one stage or another.
Good Value and Good nick for a public course
This course has one of the hardest par 4s in sydney, the 15th.
Auburn Golf Club (Rosnay GC is the clubhouse name, donít ask
me why) offers a little more than one may think. Measuring 4936m
Par 68 with 8 Par 3s ranging from 90-205m, 6 Par 4s ranging from
265-360m and 4 Par 5s ranging from 450-525m, it offers a good mix
Fairways are in quite good condition, although not overly great.
Greens are slow and flattish with the odd green (12th) playing a
few tricks. Teebeds are in below average condition. The best
holes are probably the 18TH Par 5 and the 6th Par 3. Both require
accuracy as bunkers protect the greens. The worst hole is the
16th a 90 metre dud. They seem to have ran out of room on the way
in with the quality 15th hole followed by the 16th shocker.
Played here on Tuesday 13th December 2005 and paid $20 for 18
holes. Uni students get a discount and pay $8 for a Tuesday round
of 18. Not bad value for averagish course. Could do with more
options off the tee for many holes, but worth a try.
Rosnay is my local course and has recently been renevated. This
course is firly short but still has some challenging holes. It
has a good mix of par 3,4,5's. The 2nd and 17th holes are
challenging par 3's. The 18th is one of the longest par
5's I have played and there are some good par 4's in the
15th and 6th holes. The greens are very well maintained. New
flags gardens cart pathways and some 11 new bunkers have been put
in. As if the 15th wasn't long enough a new garden has been
put in to extent the water hazard in the middle of the hole
making impossible to clear with a driver unless you can hit close
on 250 -270 leaving no option put a long iron and a long approach
to the green. These recent additions has added new dimension to
this well maintained course. Excellent value for money for the
If your handicap is non-existent and clinching a par or more a
round is a major achievement then Rosnay rates very highly.
Good mixture of par 3's 4's and 5's, if somewhat
straight forward on some holes.
Great value for money ($17-$20) makes this one of Sydney's
best kept secrets for the "social" golfer.
Beware the 14th. Hell hath no fury should you screw this one up.
Good walk, especially in winter when the 6km distance isn't
All in all - a fairly good course for the amateur golfer.
Rosnay was a challenge I thought. The fairways tended to be a bit
dry when I played there and the greens were slow. It did get very
hot at Rosnay?
This course had a few par 5 that were straight as. The front nine
was average but the creek came into play on some holes.
The backnine was a challenge!..Heavily surronded in overhanging
trees from the champion plates made you think. Duff creek is
always in play on the back.
Some holes were unsual up and down on most. If you tend to slice
the back nine would be a problem for you.
Rosnay was a challenge but on a hot day it can be tiring. Very
good price too.
This course is great for those who don't enjoy walking up and
down hills all day.
The tees and greens are in good condition. The fairways seem to
suffering from the drought a little.
The weekday price of $16 was most reasonable for the quality of
The fairways are pretty straight so most of the greens are
visible from the tee, even on the par 5s.
The fairways are wide and the trees are not too thick so grab
your driver and swing away.
This course is most suited those with higher handicaps.
Lower handicappers may find it unchallanging as there are very
few bunkers or any other hazards for that matter.
Rosnay is a fairly short and easy golf course...
But for the average golfer can prove to be very challenging.. It
has wide open fairways, and a large number of par 3's, this
is where I think Rosnay's strongpoint lies, as the par
3's come in many shapes and sizes some proving very difficult
It is great value for money as it's only $20 for 18 holes on
the weekend, even cheaper on weekdays I think...
I wouldn't really bother. I don't know why I did.
Short & poorly cared for course.
