Finaly some rain in the Tropical North.
Unable to play on my scheduled day, I accepted an offer from
Peter from the Lucinda Point caravan park to join him and his
park guests on their regular 14 hole social day.
As the organiser, handicapper and barman Peter gave me a stroke a
hole. This proved a decent challenge on a course with two
Front nine inside the race track, long par fours and fives and
not a tree in sight (plenty of mushrooms after the rain)
Back nine trees galore and a complete game change as we navigated
around behind the track. Missed holes thirteen through sixteen
which are the hardest (so I was told)
Lush fairways, decent variety, affordable, and great company.
Beware the 11th, it sneaks up on you after the open spaces of the
front followed by a par three.
Slightly difficult to find unless you know were you are going.
Not well advertised and signed. A round of 18 holes cost $15.
From what I can gather, the club house is not opened alll the
time, so it is a honesty system for fees during this time. PLEASE
SUPPORT THIS I SAY. Amenities in the club house and on the course
are very basic. Carts are not available, however, a lovely member
was kind enough to let me borrow his. If he reads this, THANKS.
The first 9 holes are what they call the inside the race track
nine. These 9 hole are simple, mostly flat, minimal hazads such
as bunkers or long grass etc and have next to no trees. Be
careful though, when teeing of on the 4 hole, remeber, it is a
doglg left. From the 4th tee, the 6th hole green is about 280 yrs
straight ahead and one could get confused as to which green one
should be playing, as I did. When this happens, you will have
trouble finding the next 5th and 6th tee of areas, however, I did
recover. Most of these fairways and greens are basic and easy to
play. The greens are slow however.
The back 9 are referred to as the outside the track 9. These
holes are very differant. Most have large trees, water causes
ways, ocassional bunkers and long grass for anyone who strays and
plays poor. When on the fairway, it is alot easier. Again, the
greens were basic, one or two do require good reading, but all
The only down side to the round I experienced was the obvious
lack of proper and consistant greenkeeping and maintainance to
all the course. I played between Xmas and the New Year... this
may have been a factor. I lost a few balls, not from poor shots,
but from goods shots that happened to land in some extremely lush
area's both on and just of the fairway's, and for the
life of me, I could not find.
Overall, not a bad course. If your in Ingham for a few days for
what ever reason, if you play, give this a go. Not a challenging
or pretty course, but one for a nice social day out.
