With many Sydney courses closed over the past 2-3 weeks due to rain I was itching for a comp round and found one with a mate at Stonecutters.On first impressions the Clubhouse and course look to be kept in very tidy order. Easy parking, friendly staff and more than adequate practice facilities. The set up of the course with mostly par 4's on the front excluding one par 3 and one par 5 may not be everybodies cup of tea but they play so well that you forget that they are nearly all par 4's.Nearly all fairways are very open and only a very poor tee shot will result in an unplayable or lost ball. The rough is well mown however the heavy rough is exactly that HEAVY.The back 9 has a fair amount of variety with a good assortment of par 3,4&5's. two of the par 5's on the back are easily reachable in a Sunday comp. however a downhill lie may prevent you from aggressive play if you are not careful with you course management.The 16th 17th and 18th are a nice way to finish off a round of golf. 16th is a Downhill demanding par 3 with water infront and to the left and bunkers to the right and behind, quite easy to overshoot, I ended up about 10 foot off the green with a downhill chip, luckily I saved par.The 17th is a short uphill par 3 that may be deceiving to some. Guarded with bunkers on the left and a tuff green. A back left flag would surely turn this hole into a much harder hole than meets the eye.The 18th is a great finishing short par 5 with a good chance at birdie or even eagle if you are on your A game. Fairly straight drive with heavy bush on the left and bunkers on the right. A decent driver will leave a long iron into the green. Any mistake with your approach into the freen may leave you with a challenging put from top to bottom tier or vice versa. Luckily today I got away with a lucky 3 and a few balls for my troubles from the club. Nothing like finishing with an eagle. I will be happy for a week. Fairways are brilliant considering the recent weather, Greens are spectacular and even the light rough is a joy to hit from.Iced water can be found along the way and a half ways house provides some decent and quick grub. The course does not go back to the clubhouse at the 9th. For my first time playing this course I did not find most of the holes overly challenging, fairways & light rough alow you to hit the odd drive off course with little punishment. I found this course to be one of the most enjoyable in Sydney. I like to get out and smash the drive without too many concerquences. For $50 on a comp day it would have to be the best value for money course in Sydney.I rate it 5/5

Played Monday after the big Sydney wet .. Course was damp but in good condition ..bunkers out of play..no buggies as to wet .Cost $50 .. First time at course.. I play of 17 ... great facilities .. nice course..definitely going back .. .. more resort course design I think .. plenty of room of the tee. Greens good . Wasnt a hard walk ... front nine doesnt come back to the club house so need to take drink or food with you ... one thing doesnt have hardly any taps or bubblers so take a drink. Otherwise good course worth a visit.

I don't play regularly to have a good insight around most courses but I feel the course needs more reviewing for future players. Took my dad out for a mid-day round, $60 for us both is very good considering the caliber of the course. Wind started to pick up just before we tee'd off and now post play leaves a lot to be remembered. Review from the Gold Tees Opening hole is a straight par 5 that lead into a strong headwind, both shits finding the fairway but almost plugging, walking up the fairway evidence of poor drainage was shown, fairways were mostly bogged and a touch long. Green wasn't quite up to par and very furry due to coring which is fine. Bogged fairways proceeded all the way till about the 8th, which by then the wind really can affect you. Some holes were playing into a 3club wind, where others with a crosswind would take your ball 10m left and finish it up 20m right, bunkering stops a punch sort of play so had no choice but to fight it and lost. 3,7,8 mark the best holes on the front nine with the land accommodating into a tough challenge. 3rd features a lone gum about 70m short of the tree which forces you to either fade over or draw around the tree, lost a ball in the lake due to the crosswind. 7th is a shallow par3 that requires a ball to fly over water and finger shaped bunkers to a moderately sized green, plenty of space to up and down. 8th is a gentle par 4 which can be taken advantage for the longer hitters, water running all along the left and over bunkering on the right protects a small green. Made a bird from off the green though. Playing group infront of three were quite rude and wouldn't let us pass and proceeded to retake putts on the green, also proceeded to take my tee shots twice and replace with a cut up old taylormade lethal. The back nine starts with a par 5 1/3 that allows a going for two off a good tee shot, fairways were running truer and gave good roll. The green is stretched and allows a larger target area between two bunkers short and a big collecting one off on the left hand side, water runs along the right collecting any balls sliced. The 11th was a hole taking me by surprise, only 127m but with wind turned my 8 from 130m to only 80m. A good up and down secured par. The next hole that proved memorable was the 15th a straight forward par5 that requires a thread into a small green, however taking a left side approach off the tee will allow for a closer look into the green, with a driver 3w all but securing a on for two, a birdie was a good result The 16th par3 is another hole that reminds me some tiger woods pga tour memories, an elevated tee down to a small green protected by water left and bunkers to the right and over gives a adrenaline rush, wind playing behind you adds to the pressure. The 17th another par3 seems to have taken inspiration from the 11th at colour and features a right angle approach from the forward tees and a Shute passage from the back plates, green is massive and allows for plenty of space The finishing hole of a par5 felt bland almost and last minute in construction. A lone bunker right catches any shots drifting but with a generous fairway it shouldn't come into play at 246m. a middle to long iron second allows players to either lay up or attack the green which is only protected on the right hand side. A two tiered green however would really test on a true day with a delicate read needed to keep it on the green without running off. Overall a course that in the middle of nowhere would be another I would play again at the price, once greens are better I'll post a part2 of the course

This is a pleasant course. The fairways are generally very wide and shots into the green are deceptive. Greens are very large, but rarely appear that way from the fairway or tee. Interesting use of bunkering and greens that are hard to see the full surface of from anywhere you would be hitting from are the main feature. The design has many similarities to the only other Shark design I have played at the Vintage in the Hunter Valley. The course was a bit dry the day I played, but the fairways were excellent and the course very well maintained. Playing during the week was good value and I'd definitely go again. I'd rate this as one of the best layouts in the Sydney metro area. Great pro-shop if you like resort style pro-shops with high end gear, stylish clubhouse and the course has a pleasant outlook.
