Now called West Beach Patawalonga, this course is a gem if you have never played it before. I assumed that being a very accessible public course that it would be average & worn out but that couldn't be further from the truth. The grass is lush & the greens are wearing well after a busy summer. I good challenge & a lot of fun too!

Played here at the Patawalonga course on 31/12/15 for $78, which include comp fees and a cart. The course is in good nick through out; true greens, wide lush fairways and enough bunkers in play to make your sand iron a regular requirement ( though sand was a little hard). Seems forgiving for the mid to high handicapper (most of us), plenty of 40+ stableford scores off the white. Single figure players would probably reach a couple of the par fours. Three or four degrees cooler than the city even without many large shade trees. Resort and caravan park nearby and plenty of beaches in the area. An enjoyable and satisfying course.

The Relic.

The Adelaide Shores Executive 60 course at the Westward Ho Golf Club measures 3294m Par 60 with twelve par 3s ranging from 102-184m and six par 4s ranging from 233-281m. Course has some quite lush kikuyu fairways on its par 4 holes and around the green surrounds. The small-to-medium sized bent grass greens are generally flat with little break with smooth reasonable roll but not fast. There are 10 bunkers on the open short tree-lined course. Greens are the same quality as the southern Patawalonga course. Highlights include: the opening 269m straight 1st (index 1) with a red-staked drainage channel on the right and a bunker 30m short of the bunkerless green; the 167m 3rd (index 3) with a 20m long, narrow and undulating bunkerless green; the 132m slightly uphill 13th (index 14) with a bunker short; the 265m slight dogleg right 16th (index 2) with a fairway bunker 50m short of the green in the middle of the fairway to avoid; and the 152m slightly downhill 17th (index 4) with a bunker short left. Played here 26/09/2011 with $17 green fees. Course access is from Military Road in the beachside suburb of West Beach. Course is more suited for the beginner or less frequent golfer.

The Patawalonga course is maintained in a high standard. Fairway is very nice when you walking on it. I enjoyed this course very much and would recommend anyone who is looking for a good golf course to play in Adelaide.

The Adelaide Shores Patawalonga course at the Westward Ho Golf Club measures 5924m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 124-167m, ten par 4s ranging from 294-406m and four par 5s ranging from 471-485m. Course has wide kikuyu fairways with patches of couch with even some rye grass/kikuyu in the rough. The 13th hole along the public driving range has a fully couch grass fairway. The medium sized bent grass greens are smooth with good speed. The teebeds are couch with the 16th having kikuyu grass. There are 42 bunkers on the course with every hole bunkered. Highlights include: the 401m Par 4 straight 8th (index 2) with a bunker middle splitting the fairway about 100m out from the 30m long front-sloping green with bunker short right; the 361m slight bend right 11th (index 3) with 2 fairway bunkers left off the tee to a green with 2 shortside bunkers; the 167m 12th (index 9) has a huge green with 2 rightside bunkers; the 475m slight dogleg right 13th (index 11) with fairway bunker left off the tee and another bunker 100m short of the green on the right at the dogleg corner to a green with 2 bunkers; and the 406m slight dogleg left 14th (index 1) with 2 fairway bunkers along the leftside to a green with a bunker short left. Shame holes 14 & 15 are affected by Tapleys Hills Road traffic noise as they are quite good holes. The 9th and 18th are short weak par 4 finishing holes and the par 5s are a reasonable length but not varied enough. Played here 26/09/2011 with $24.50 green fees or $18 twilight after 3pm. Course access is from Military Road in the beachside suburb of West Beach.
