The sporting showpiece of this unofficial capital of Central Australia is the stunning Alice Springs Golf Club which boasts one of the world’s finest desert venues set in the foothills of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges. With several quality hotels backing onto the course why not stay a couple of days and enjoy the magnificent scenery.

The Alice Springs course has earned rave reviews from golfers world-wide as a course of unique charm blended with some subtle severity. Accuracy is a must and even the boldest hitters must harness their power and replace it with discretion to ensure a safe landing, rather than challenge the menacing spinifex which lurks at the edges of the fairways.

A magnificent course!! Weather was fantastic as well which made the day more enjoyable. Overall a good challenge for all golfers with no hole the same. If you are a little erratic off the tee, you are met with some interesting lies, but being in the middle of the desert, you would expect that. Greens were in top condition and quite fast. Steve Tieck (professional) was very friendly and helpful. The views made for good photos as well. Great day!

Made welcome by Steve Tieck the Pro - ex Cowra NSW. Course was in great condition and offers a number of challenges. It is truly amazing how they can keep it in such "tip top" shape under such harsh weather conditions. A must if in the Alice - we will be back if going north.

I played this course last week, after I had been eyeing it off for a long while and I wasn't going to miss the opportunity on my first visit to Alice Springs. The first thing I have to say is the club pro and his staff were very helpful and made me feel most welcome. I had only planned to play one round, but was drawn back for a second, enjoying the first round so much. It is basically a flat track that has some very challenging holes that wind through rocky outcrop and desert type scrub. Anything off the fairways can cause grief and there are numerous bunkers to gobble up wayward balls, although you should always have a good lie, as the faces of the bunkers are rock hard and balls end up rolling into good positions. There are only two water hazards and you would have to hit very wayward shots for these to be a problem. The fairways are a combination of couch and kikuya and they were not brilliant, still being winter and struggling with the below freezing nights. The greens are large, hard and fast. They are very true, so get the line and speed right and you won't have to worry about the ball moving off line. My pick of holes was the par 4 8th. All downhill with one of the narrowest fairways on the course and guarded by rocky outcrops and scrub on both sides and bunkers. This is a course that can easily be walked, but I probably would hire a cart in summer and tee off early or late, as the area experiences extremely hot summers. If your in Alice Springs don't skip having a hit at this great course.

This is a fantastic course, tough but well worth a game. The fairways are great, but don't miss them or you will be playing off either rocks or bare dirt. The greens are firm and fast and excellent to putt on. They can be very quick if the wind blows so you need to try and get your ball under the hole. The green fees are $78, but if you are in town for a while there is a weekly membership for $88 or monthly for $140 and it is definitely worth playing multiple times. This is a very picturesque course and a definite must to play. It is rated 53 in the top 100 Australian courses and in the top 10 desert courses of the world, and the ratings are definitely deserved.

Enjoyed an early morning round at Alice Springs GC this week. I’d highly recommend taking your clubs if you are travelling to Alice Springs. This course is about 25 years old and is one of the better inland courses in Australia. The setting is truly unique. It is not overly long, but there’s a nice design element, with the front 9 nicely utilising the surrounding rocky hills. My only criticisms are a lack of movement in the greens (anyone familiar with Peter Thomson’s early design work will feel very much at home here), and on a few holes, houses that are too close for comfort. I rate this course, and would put it in the same pack as quality courses like Horsham, Bonnie Doon and Mt Lawley. Not out of the top shelf, but safely in the second tier and well worth a visit if you’re in Central Australia.
