COURSE DETAILS

Set at the foot of Scenic Hill, the 18 hole course winds it’s way through native tree mixed with the ever present wildlife. You can join the many kangaroos that have claimed the lush kikuyu fairways as their feeding area.

The course itself is a par 71 for men and par 72 for the ladies. Although there are only two bunkers, the course is filled with plenty of trees and is a test of your ability if you stray from the centre of the wide fairways.

The Bent grass greens are a breath of fresh air in this region and they will often test your ability to read with your putter.

There is a fully stocked golf shop PGA professionals Neil Bye and Bryan Trembath on hand to assist you with your golfing needs, buggies and club hire. Neil and Bryan are also available for lessons by appointment.

The Clubhouse offers all the usual amenities of a modern club. Relax with a cool refreshing drink in the viewing lounge overlooking the course with full views of the first tee and the nineth and eighteenth greens.

Played in the Saturday comp with a local and found this quite an interesting layout. There is a reasonable variety of holes. Definitely a course you need to play more than once to work out some of the holes. The fairways were in excellent condition and the greens were also terrific. The green surrounds made it difficult to chip as if you landed in the surrunds it stopped, but if you hit the greens it ran through. It is quite a flat course and so is easily walked. There are quite a few holes where the ladies tee off from behind the men, which is most unusual. One is a par 5 for Ladies and a Par 4 for Men, but the rest are the same par. The green fees are $30, but the local pro gave us a great deal of $33 for both of us, including comp fees. The locals are very friendly and the club welcomes visitors happily. Well worth a game.

Measures 5893m Par 71 with four par 3s ranging from 141-189m, eleven par 4s ranging from 281-382m and three par 5s ranging from 481-493m. Course has medium-sized tree-lined widish kikuyu fairways with slow bent grass greens with rough playing as red dirt under the trees with not much, if any, grass cover. The 9th and 10th fairways are quite lush compared to the other yellow kikuyu fairways. There are 2 bunkers on the course: one guarding the 141m 7th (index 14) short left and one guarding the 156m 16th (index 15) short right. Highlights include: the 189m 4th (index 2) with a front-right sloping bunkerless green and OOB airport fence on the far right; the 481m slight dogleg left 9th (index 12) with power lines at the dogleg corner about 240m off the tee and its 30m long undulating front-sloping bunkerless green; the 173m slight downhill 11th (index 11) with its flat raised teebed to bunkerless green with OOB fence far right (looks intimidating from the tee with all the timber around); and the 456m straight 18th plays slightly uphill with the unusually shaped clubhouse in the background. Played here 24/07/2011 with visitor green fees $23 Wednesday-Sundays or $15 on Mondays and Tuesdays. Overall the par 5s were of a challenging, but similiar length and the par 3s were quite varied with the best being the 11th. Having about 17000 people and being the 3rd largest Riverina city, after Wagga Wagga and Albury, I expected a little more challenges and better course conditioning at Griffith. Griffith is located 4km north of the town centre on the way to the airport. Friendly staff and members.

languid
Played September 5, 2010. The course now has three bunkers. We played the day following course closure due to heavy rain. The course had drained very well. We did not encounter any casual water. Temporary Local Rule was lift, clean and replace if mud was on the ball. I reckon they needed preferred lies, which we used for our social game. I agree with the other reviewers in general. The greens were a bit ordinary at the time we played. The course needs to do something about signage for directions from green to the next tee. In some needy places there is no sign and the one at the back of the 17th tee is totally unreadable.

A good track for the low markers and beginners with no water and only 2 bunkers on the course.

Small slopping fast greens surrounded by Kikuyu makes it vital to ensure that you do not short side youself if you miss a green as getting up & down is a real test.

Late afternoon there are always kangaroos on the course.This course is well woth a vist

Well what can I say. For those that want to venture off the Kidman Way in search of those hidden golfing gems. Than look no further.

This course offers both low and high handicappers and equally rewarding challenge. There is the unforgiving rough, the meandering but tough fairways and the ever present marsupials to deal with.

After the round head up stairs and join your host and mine Wayne Moat for a lovely cold ale.

This course is nice walk with some nice holes in between, without doubt Griffiths major draw card are the Kangaroos that lounge around the fairways with joeys in pouch. Flat and green with very little beach but what do expect when your 6 hours from the water, some very nice dog legs going in either direction, put this with tiny greens and you have yourself a good afternoons golf
