I have played this course a couple of times now and though the ground is pretty hard underfoot the layout is challenging enough and with smaller greens than your average city track requires more accuracy.  The bunkers are hard so you have to rethink your normal method of playing these shots.  On the whole it is a worthwhile course to put on your calendar.

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.

Played a couple of months ago, course is challenging & there is a variety of good long and short holes. Fairways and greens were in good condition, most Central Queensland golf courses are firm but this one is an enjoyable layout.

I am a member of this Golf Course and agree with the below comments. Yes it does get very hard under foot after a dry spell, but with the recent wet weather we have had up here the past couple of years, the course is in pristine condition. The ground staff have done a great job in maintaining the course. In my opinion, I believe this is easily the best course in the Gladstone region, although the Agnes Waters Golf Club would come a close second (it is only a nine hole course).

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.
