Played on 25 November 2007. Nice little course for a high
handicapper but not much of a challenge for mid to low. Narrow
fairways requires you to be accurate. I found that if you miss
the fairway, you’d better miss it by a lot as it would give
you a better chance of a shot from another fairway. Club
selection does come into play with shorter tighter holes.
Sometimes better to hit iron off the tee and leave yourself with
a full wedge than have to play a 3/4 wedge into a well protected
Generally, course condition was pretty good. Greens were a tad on
the slow side but for average golfers, it wasn’t a big
deal. Fairways were nice after a few days of showers but could do
with a bit more water.
My only disappointment was having to play off the public yellow
tees. The course would have been more interesting off the whites.
Something for the club to consider as I doubt I would return if I
had to play off yellows again.
Played in January on a hot day. Nice location. Gentle sea breeze.
Fairly flat course with some interesting holes, few bunkers in
play. The back 9 has some water. Not easy to lose balls as rough
is rare. Most fairways tree lined so if you drive into the trees
you will be penalised. Reasonable length off the Yellow tees at
around 5000m+ but not a long course. Greens had a lot of pitching
marks indicating that a lot of the players do not repair their
marks, but even so greens in good condition. Fairways holding up
well in spite of the hot summer. For public access arrive after
1.30 on a weekend without prebooking and you don't wait too
long (summer only). Certainly worth a look at $27.
I played in 21/11/2004 and the course was in excellent condition
following significant rain in the previous weeks. Almost all
fairways are heavily lined with trees that will punish you if you
don't drive straight. Infact this is a good course that will
test your recovery shots if you hook or slice. There are few
water hazards on the course, so it's difficult to loose your
ball. They could make the course a little harder by introducing
some bunkers that would make the average golfer think more. The
11th hole (par 4) was my favourite with a down hill drive pulling
up infront of the river and a chip over onto the green.
(Well...that's how I had planned to play it).
Overall this is a good course that has some good challenges and
plenty of rewards. Worth a look and a good venue for golfers of
played a round here on 21/8, a fairly flat course just next to
the Warringah Mall, almost every fairway is tree lined, front 9
is just relatively simple and easy, however, the back 9 is a bit
more interesting with water in play in some of the holes and the
river running across some fairways, you really have to think
about where to put your ball in, over the river or lay up short
the course is currently not in a very good condition, most of the
greens are sandy and bumpy and the fairways, especially in the
front 9, are not looking good either, will probably wait for a
while before going back
I'be played this course on & off for 25 years and it has
always been a bit up itself.
Played it Oct06 for first time in probably 8 years and was told
that I should play from the yellow markers instead of the back
markers. Luckily they mentioned this on the 17th. Given the
yellows are up to 100 metres ahead of the real markers (typically
about 15-40meters) I feel as though I am not getting value for
money. Also there are no indicators for hole length and nor is
the scorecard representing the hole as it only gives members
Besides this the course is well looked after for a high use,
suburban course. Well bunkered and greens not bad.
$32 for mid week 18 holes wasn't too bad and it is slap bang
in the middle of the northern beaches courses both in locality
and quality. It's better than Balgowlah, Palm Beah, Avalon
but not as good as Long Reef, Wakehurst, Mona Vale, Bayview.
