Played a quick 9 holes in the early morning on a week day and was thoroughly impressed. I am around an 18 - 20 handicap, good with irons, not great with a driver and normally 2 put on greens at worst.

This course will eat you alive if you are not straight and don't know the layout, I found out on a few occasions. There is thick bush next to the rough, and steep declines onto adjacent fairways on the other side. The greens are good, a few pitch marks where people haven't repaired them but relatively fast and no imperfections. 

It is a bit of a hilly course and isn't a course you can blitz in minimal time so take your time and enjoy your time playing. 

This isn't a top class course of the Manly stature but is certainly one to try, one of the better ones open to the public.

Played here last weekend with our Social Golf Club. I hadn't played here for at least 20 years, what a transformation from what I could remember! Take plenty of ***** if you can't hit straight as most of the fairways have out of bounds on both sides and there are only a couple of holes that have adjoining fairways. The course is set in bush land of the Wakehurst Parkway above Manly Dam with great views across to the ocean. We played after a lot of rain and there was absolutely no carry once the ball hit the fairways which added to the distance. There is a good variety of holes and a lot of good strategic bunkers placed along the course. Most of the social club rated it moderate to hard to score consistently due to the out of bounds. But that is golf!

Has really kicked it up a notch in the past year. Playing there almost weekly now. I've never lost so many balls but it's seriously a great course with really challenging and enjoyable holes everywhere. Can often get rather jammed up just as a result of the courses lost ball trend, however I've never really been too held up by this. Additionally, they offer cheaper student discounts which are very handy for me and make playing on Wakehurst affordable for me.

Still measures 6112m Par 72 with three par 3s ranging from 134-197m, twelve par 4s ranging from 281-415m and three par 5s ranging from 458-505m. As mentioned the clubhouse views are magnificent which sits 110m above sea level atop a plateau with the lowest part of the course being along the 497m 4th hole where the land is around 50m above sea level where it falls away to Manly Dam. The course has 9 small-to-medium sized ponds or dams which unlike other courses, some come into play more than you thinkthe course also has 36 bunkers. The course has a hilly layout interspersed with some interesting internal OOB. The layout is not a traditional parkland style course with some holes wide and others are cut through the native bushland with rock outcrops visible on most holes. Although, its wide kikuyu fairways are fair for all golfers with minimal rough, there are some tight driving holes on the back nine. The bent/poa mix greens are consistent and fairly quick. The teebeds are also kikuyu with some elevated teeshots, straight holes and a few doglegs. Highlights include: the straight 365m from an elevated tee 3rd (index 1) with a dam right 180m to clear off the tee and another dam 5-30m short of the bunkerless green across the fairway, the 395m gentle double dogleg 11th (index 2) with a fairway bunker 220-255m from the tee on the right, with OOB on the left tee to green and OOB right from the fairway bunker all the way to the green guarded by another bunker 5-30m short right, the 150m 13th (index 15) from an elevated tee 15m above the green guarded by 2 bunkers with a small pond 10-30m short right, the 415m Par 4 straight 14th (index 4) has fairway narrowing with a small pond 250-275m from the tee on the left with a thickly vegetated fall on the left from tee to the bunkerless green, and the 197m 16th (index 7) with a 165m teeshot clearance over the small dam to a green guarded by 2 bunkers shortside. There are 4 shortish par 4s to score well on, the dogleg left 282m 1st, the 281m 7th, 286m uphill dogleg right 9th and the gentle dogleg right 315m 10th. The two long par 5s on the front nine are challenging with OOB, thick native vegetation with rock outcrops and some bunkers to contend with. Having played here a few times now, most recently 5/7/2011, green fees are now $44 on the usually busy weekends, $38 weekdays to play socially, and open competitions held on Mondays are $35. Remember, if you play on the weekends, you are playing behind the competition groups which can be slow. Great views of the ocean from some of the back nine holes with a well-maintained course in an unique piece of bushland. I agree with others in that Wakehurst is one of the better public-access courses on the northern beachesmuch better than Warringah and of a similar quality than as Mona Vale.

Played here a couple of times in the past year. The front 9 is more interesting in layout than the back 9. Straight shooting is required or be prepared to lose a few balls. No free drops if it lands in a difficult spot. If walking, can be hard work as there are some steep hills to climb. Quite a lot of wild life to enjoy, with water dragons all over the course, even enjoying a beer with you on the club house balcony. Overall nice course with some good holes, worth a visit once or twice a year.
