I will never forget Albany Links Golf Course as it was the first
course I had ever played. (3 years ago). I had returned to the
course, after I felt the need to see how it had come along over
the years. It ws quite dissapointing to say the least. I must
admit, I never realised how short some of the holes were. Some
viewers have suggested it is a good course to practice as a
younster, which I would tend to agree with due to the smaall ques
and relaxed atmosphere. However, only a severe hack would return
to the course on a consistent basis. The course is just a
shambles. Some of the holes are just too small, and can
potentially play you out of form due to playing half strokes, and
losing confidence in your stoke. I would love to give the course
some credit, due to it being the home where it all began for me.
Although I really struggle to, as it is just a very ordinary golf
course. I will give it a 2 star, very lucky not to be a 1.
you'd think that over time a course would gradually improve,
however this one seems to be getting worse
rubbish course, there are probably 4 par 3’s under 100m
long and a 350m par 5 ???. payed 12$ for a round of 10 holes, as
a student i only have to pay 17$ for a round at wantima up the
road which is a far better course.
I am a regular at Albany Links Golf Course and it’s an
excellent little course. There are normally no queues and you
don’t have to book. There are some Par 3’s and
4’s. Overall a good course for beginners and intermediate
levels and a muck around.
The golf course is really good and excellent value. I played it
after heavy rain and it was still great. Most other local courses
were closed .I had a feed at the Links Cafe and it was very clean
and served great food at fair prices.
this course is cheap and nasty they have just done a resturant on
the site but i hear down the pub that all the staff left because
they were not getting paid and they didnt pay some of the
contractors also, i dont want to give these peoplr my money if
they do that to there staff
i hate when people say its good for practicing . ITS NOT, its
worse for your game, greens are so small, its feels like hitting
onto a tooth pick
I golfed at this couses i thought it was easyer than most couses
but the prices are cheap if you are a new to this game then i
would sa to go and golf there and if you are just practicing i
would say practis there but if you are a pro i would sa dont go
there it would be to easyy for you ok cya.
I thought a LINKS course was on a sea coastline!This goat track
will never get me back. I could have thrown my golfball to reach
some targets.I Skewed a ball and yelled 4 and half the course
ducked for cover. The greens are small and the tee blocks are
laughable.Someone should also tell them its illegal to store
sewerage water in a dam . I was shocked to see 2 young kids up to
their knees trying to fish out their ball.I think i’ll try
One Mile or Wantima just up the road.
Golf at it's most basic. Only two holes have regulation size
and quality greens, the rest are of backyard quality(and are very
small). The only upside - generally no queues to get on and play.
If you're after a true game of golf, try Wantima Country
Club, a kilometre down Southpine Rd.
Teaching my kids to play at albany Links was one of the best
things I have ever done. Other coursesare too big and they loose
confidence because they get bad scores. But at albany links they
can learn on par 3's and gain confidence beacuse they get the
ball on the Green!!
Also you dont have to dress them up in the propper attire, so
they can feel comfortable out on the course. It is also the
perfect place for you to try to get that whole in one.
Just because albany Links isnt as high class as other courses
doesnt mean its ot wirth a play. I encourage all of you to have a
game at albany links and see just how much FUN golf can be.
I've seen alot of golf courses in my day but I've never
seen a course as poor as Albany Links. The fairways are atrocious
and the lenghts of holes are to short for any keen golfer. I
think the mini-putt there is more difficult and challenging than
the actual course. The service there is also utterly disgraceful
and my best opinion would be to travel a few minutes down
Strathpine Road to Wantima Country Club which will definitely
give you a challenge. The upside of this course is its cheap
prices and low queues on the course. As I said before it is not
for any keen golfers looking for a challenge.
There is currently 10 holes in play and measures 1770m Par 34
with 7 Par 3s ranging from 85-130m, with 2 Par 4s ranging from
305-320m and one Par 5 350m 3rd hole. Course is in absolute
shambles, with clearly not enough land for 9 holes let alone 10
holes! The fairways and rough are so closely alike, that I could
not ascertain from either surface. The greens are bumpy with dead
patches and are small elevated domes. Tee-beds are not even
elevated and has tee-markers that run the same as the
fairways/rough. The course itself is not challenging, and has
ridiculously short holes, much like a pitch and putt.
I played here on 21/2/06 and paid $10 green fees for 9 holes
after playing Wantima, and was more interested in the mini golf
than the courseÖ Not at all challenging, with a poor layout
and conditions means it would not be seeing me again if Iím
ever in Brissie again. Generally give it a skip and go to One
I've played the links a few times now, and as a beginner I
found it to be a great course to work on my short game because of
the high number of PAR 3's. The course is easy, and it's
cheap to play. Overall I'd say it's a great course to
start on for any beginners, but sooner or later we all have to
move on. I'll play there again.
