Entertaining, I guess.

Well, that was an experience!

Hopes are high upon driving through the elaborate entrance at this course, but the honeymoon is soon over.

Once you work out where you are supposed to park your car, you make your way to the un-signed "clubhouse" that comprises of a covered deck area, attached to a maze of shipping containers & caravan wrecks. 

You are greeted by the Beverley Hillbillies, who will be happy to try and find a golf cart that has enough charge to do 18 holes (we were lucky enough to get the nice red number with the Rabbitohs stickers on the front).

So, once you get past this experience and get to the tee, you will need some time to establish where you are meant to be projecting the golf ball toward, there is no discernible fairway here (or for pretty much the other 17 holes, in all honesty).

Taking your own patch of turf may be an option, otherwise a preferred lie can usually be located within 12-14 club lengths of your ball (and this is when you landed on a "fairway").

We managed to putt out on the 15th green, whilst searching for the 3rd- easier done than one would think.

Which brings me to "death over troubled waters". This could loosely be defined as a bridge, but crossing may lead to an early demise. Not even a rusted-out handrail on this one, recommended for thrillseekers only (rusted out handrails are featured on many holes, so those obsessed with safety won't miss out either).

$25pp would have been better spent at the driving range.

Played many courses over the years and this one has been well and truly awarded the wooden spoon.

Positives:

* driving out of the front gates and leaving

* they sell alcohol

Negatives:

*everything else

Fraser Lakes Golf Course....What a great course this is... Recent upgrading has bought this it into the running to be the best course in the area. Interesting course to play and the staff are always friendly and helpful. If you get the chance to play this course and you don't you will have missed a great experience. Much, much better course and in much better condition than Craignish Country Club's course!

Fraser Lakes boasts a flat, interesting layout measuring just under 6000m with water in play on over half the course. There is really no straight forward tee shot out there with most fairways either bending or narrowing and plenty of sneaky water hazards and drains to punish inaccuracy. The 340m par 4 1st has water crossing the fairway 200m from the tee and on the 480m par 5 3rd, water sits both left and right of the fairway at an optimal landing zone. On the back the highlights include the left dogleg 10th with water left and right aswell as cutting across the fairway 150 from the tee and the 11th and 12th with OOB and a drain running down the left from tee to green. The finishing hole is a double dogleg par 5 with water on the left and again cutting across the fairway 140m from the green. Like many holes on this course, it needs some thought and good navigation to find the green in regulation. The overall condition of the course is ordinary at best and the greens are just about mowed down fairways in parts. Certainly the challenging layout rivals most courses in the area but the rundown facilities and poor maintenance is a letdown and probably puts it a level below its neighbour Craignish Country Club. $15 for 18 holes.
