Ilfracombe Golf Club boasts a flat 10 hole layout with the 9th and 18th having separate oil greens and all but three holes with alternate tees. Tree growth is very sparse throughout the majority of the course and numerous short par 4s will help you score well. The two par 5s out the back are the biggest challenge with Collumpton Creek and thick gidgee country putting strong emphasis on accuracy. The 481m 4th/13th has an open tee shot but your second is almost always going to be a measured layup to leave a short iron or wedge to clear the creek and scrub toward the putting surface. The 462m 6th/15th is one of the more interesting par 5s in the region and has the toughest tee shot on the course with dense bush lining the fairway and the creek crossing at about the 220m mark. Hitting the fairway is imperative here and the best play is a medium iron off the tee followed by another testing shot over the trees and hazard to hopefully leave a wedge on your third. Other holes of note include the 298m par 4 1st which requires a 180m carry over a small stream and the 372m par 4 7th (index 1) with a right dogleg, a small pond in the middle of the fairway and internal OOB looming for the right hand slice. Adding to the interesting charm of outback golf, there are also a few crows that lurk around the course happily descending on golf balls before you’ll even realise. The course is located just out of town on the Isisford road with a small competition held on Saturdays from 11am. $5 for 18 holes.
