Not really challenging. Nice place for a quick round of nine first hole is a straight hole with a bunker halfway along, water along the fron before the fairway and hills that surround the green.

The second is a simple hole with a drivable green with a few small hills on either side.

The thrid is probably the most challenging on the course for the begginer with the choice of going around the small bush or over it aslong as you get past it the second shot is straight to the green. to the right of the fairway 3/4's of the way up the fairway a large ditch will trap a begginer for a while but a frequent social player will shoot past it without looking back.

The 4th a dogleg right will tempt many a showoff to go over a large bush and head for the green but for a level headed man a straight shot down the fairway will set you up for a chip to the green and a chance for birdie.

The 5th the first of the par 3's won' seem tricky but any shot at the green that starts to head right has a good chance of not being found. bush land comes right up to the egde of the fairway leaving the green surrounded by tricky shots.

The sixth is a stright hole which will only take two or three shots to get to with a fairly easy putt.

The 7th 8th and 9th are straight forward holes. the 7th heads stright to a green down hill with bunkers on either side.

The 8th heads across the hill with a bump in the middle not allowing you to see the green and the 9th is stright back up the hill however to a green with steps that will send any ball stright back to the bottom of the green if the perfect stroke isnt hit.

All in all a good course.

Rum Corp is definately one of the better 9 hole courses in Sydney. A well maintained layout that has benefited from the summer rain in the area. Fairways are in great condition and the greens are not the worst i’ve seen however being the public course it is expect a few un-repaired pitch marks. Teebeds have improved and now have good coverage on just about all except the Par 3 9th.

Best holes are the sharp dogleg Par 4 3rd that requires an accurate 2nd shot into the green with out of bounds surrounding. The Par 4 4th is another dogleg right that requires accuracy of the tee to set up a birdie chance at the open green.

Whilst Rum Corp is not the greatest course in Sydney it will reward you with a good score if you play well whilst a poor round will return the higher score! Pro Shop staff are friendly and helpful and the Practice Range is better than most. All in all a good course for the beginner to intermediate player.

Haha, good ol rum corp. I recently had a round there. It’s a great little course that tests not only your driving ability, but your chipping ability aswell. My favorite hole would have to be the 4th. Reach for your bag, grab the oversized monster, line it up & punch it over the trees. It’s a dog leg right to left over a heap of trees that tends to be dawnting if your a average driver. Alot of fun to be had though.

Measured 2258m Par 33 with three Par 3s ranging from 115-140m and 6 Par 4s ranging from 275-385m. I was pleasantly surprised with at the level of maintenance for a 9-holer. I expected a country dry-bed, but looked very green and fairways were nicely trimmed, greens were running true (but still very slow), teebeds though were not so great with many bumpy lies and dirt patches.

Best holes are the opening 355m Par 4 with water left of tee with a fairway bunker on the right about 220m from the tee plus 2 bunkers protecting the green. The sharp dogleg right 385m 3rd is a good test for a par 4, with Rickabys Creek to avoid along the right, with the green very close to the creek with 1 bunker on the right. Closing 3 holes are relatively easy and short with no hazards worthy of mention.

A few doglegs, some water, sand and a decent adjoining 280m driving range is not facilities for the beginner or social players. Played here Good Friday 2006 and paid $13 otherwise only $10 weekdays.
