I played for the first time yesterday, and was very impressed
with the course, for a 9 hole.
With every hole having a dog leg in it, with a storm water drain
passing through most holes, it sets up a great little course,
with some typical, risk reward type decisions to be made. As
others said, there are some alternate greens / tees, which would
make the course play very differently.
Having tried to play previously, it can get very busy.
Measured 2608m Par 34 with two Par 3s ranging from 100-175m and 7
Par 4s ranging from 295-405m. Course is kept at a good level of
maintenance for a 9-holer with its wide fairways nicely trimmed,
greens were running true (but still very slow), teebeds though
were not so great with many bumpy lies and dirt patches.
Holes worthy of mention are the 405m 2nd over a drain and bending
left. The sharp dogleg right 360m 6th is a good test for a par 4,
with stormwater drain running along leftside. Closing 3 holes are
relatively easy and short with no hazards worthy of mention, but
glimpses of Royal Sydney GC along the 8th fairway and 9th tee to
have you wonder.
No par 4 hole is straight on this course with some water hazards
(3rd, 5th,6th , 7th, 8th) and a well bunkered finishing par 3 if
that is your taste. Played here 2/5/06 and paid $8 after 4pm
otherwise only $15 weekdays and $20 weekends.
Great Little 9 hole Course next door to Royal Sydney GC .
I may be little biased as I have a real soft spot for this course
growing up locally and learning to play here as a kid.
I have been playing a fair bit lately and In my opion the course
is currently in the best condition its ever been in.
The fairways are in great condtion and the newer greens are
truely settled in and a pleasure to putt on these days.
The one major downside as mentioned below is does get pretty
crowded more often that not...but this is only due to its local
Everyone I know who plays this course comes back to play agian.
For the Public the prices are
-$15.00 for 9 holes Weekdays
-$20 for 9 Holes Weekends (after 2.30pm)
I think there is an 18 hole rate but im not sure what it
Woollahra is a nice and leafy course for intermediate players.
When it is crowded, which regularly happens on the weekends, the
course is not relaxing. There is a water hazard affecting three
holes out of nine. Local residents regularly cross the fairways
on their way to and from shops with and without their pets as do
visitors to the two rugby ovals near by. Nevertheless Woollahra
is one of the best choices for players from Rose Bay, Vaucluse,
Double Bay and surrounding suburbs. On the weekends there is no
advance booking by phone available. Reasonable prices and
You can't help but feel envious of the golfers next door
playing Royal Sydney but this is not the worst course in the
world. A reasonably interesting 9 holer in Sydney's eastern
suburbs. It has some alternate tees and greens so you can the
some variety if you play 18 holes. There are some toughish
holes... can anyone who has played here honestly say they
haven't hit a ball onto the oval at one point in time :)
Greens are generally good and it can be a fun place to while away
a Sunday afternoon.
