Other than Gladstone, Calliope’s 5992m par 72 track is the only other 18 hole course in the region and has the most water in play. Lexlip Creek winds itself through the course and several other hazards can swallow a few loose shots. Highlights on the front include the 131m par 3 5th which plays over water toward an elevated green and the monster 549m par 5 6th. This can be a daunting hole not only for players but for motorists as well with the entrance road to the clubhouse following the right side of the fairway. With a blind bending fairway, golfers will tee off over the road and any right hand slice will likely threaten the road or the water hazard that follows the fairway all the way to the green. The back nine features the shortest par 5 of 425m with a few bunkers and water to avoid off the tee and the hardest hole on the course which is the 382m par 4 18th. This is a great finishing hole and rewards an accurate tee shot with a right dogleg and water to carry on your approach to the elevated final green. The overall presentation of this course is quite reasonable with well manicured greens and surrounds with fairways struggling a little in the drier months. The $20 price tag is great value and the interesting layout and quiet surrounds make for a great golfing option in the Gladstone Region.
I'm not going to lie, but this course was just shocking when I
played it. The greens were just plain awful and terrible. I think
they had just been cored, but the large holes throughout the
green might suggest otherwise. Balls would jump significantly
that my partner and I deciced to stop scoring our cards, as we
realised it was just so hopeless and "not golf like". On the of
the holes there was a sprinkler watering the green, and we has to
hurry up and putt before it came back to us. We still got wet.
Unbelievable. Bunkers were terrible and I guess the fairways were
ok We had been visiting the state and came across Gladstone, and
we were up for a game of golf. Unfortunately the course did not
match the nice scenery that surround the "golf course".
Good course. Gets a bit hard after a long dry spell but all in
all its a good course set in quiet surroundings.
Interesting holes requiring more thought that just bang ti down
there and get the wedge out.
Staff are very helpful and friendly.
Calliope Country Club is one of those nice quiet country courses
only 20 minutes inland from Gladstone. The hospitality is very
warm and the beer is always cold.
The golf course is both challenging and relaxing.
There is a good mix of power and touch holes on both the back and
This would have to be one of the nicest country courses I have
