COURSE DETAILS

Established in 1980 by a group of southern suburb locals who wanted to play in club without the high costs and with a friendly and social atmosphere, the Marion Park Golf Club continues to provide all the benefits of larger golf club memberships but without the high cost commitment or lack of flexibility.​

Over the decades, the club has provided hundreds an opportunity as members to have a recognised Australian handicap, play competitive golf at one of Adelaide's most picturesque locations.​

The course boasts lush green fairways, rough where rough should be and greens which are firm yet consistent throughout.

Weekly 18 hole competitions run on Saturdays using the alternate tee blocks on the competitive 9 hole layout for both Men and Women.

The 270-degree views of the coast line and Adelaide plains are simply spectacular and make the course unique for such an accessible and local location.

This course was affectionately referred to as “the goat track “ back in the late 80’s early 90’s due to the rough condition of the fairways and surrounds due to the poor quality of water available to the course at the time.

There is no comparison to that of the past anymore. The course boasts lush green fairways, rough where rough should be and greens which are firm yet consistent throughout. The resident Club, Marion Park Golf Club, play weekly 18 hole competitions using the alternate tee blocks on the 9 hole layout for both Men and Women.

Off the "Blues", shooting Par is a true challenge even for a player off scratch and it’s not because of the course condition, rather the testing layout.

The undulating fairways offer a unique experience but not an exhausting one. Having electric golf carts to hire makes it even easier to get around, if you don't want to walk it.

The 270 degree views of the coast line and Adelaide plains are simply spectacular and make the course unique for such an accessible and local location.

Marion measures 2730m Par 35 with three par 3s ranging from 145-201m, four par 4s ranging from 233-374m and two par 5s ranging from 444-477m. Course has patchy kikuyu fairways and teebeds with some couch teebeds. The couch grass greens are slow and bumpy which is not ideal - but there is some hope in that the new temporary 6th green has bent grass sewn - hopefully they all become bent grass greens. There are 10 bunkers on the course. Hilly start to your round with the first 3 holes, then you cross the road to play 4 & 5, which are weak, unbunkered and unchallenging holes, then you play holes 6-9 back to the clubhouse. Good holes include the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 9th. 1st-374m straight uphill with a right-sloping fairway with 2 fairway bunkers 200-220m off the tee on your left to a green guarded by a bunker 20m short left 2nd-169m elevated teeshot with a bunker short right - the tee is the highest point on the course with some good views of the gulf and city 3rd-477m Par 5 straight hole with a downhill teeshot with a blind 2nd shot over a crest to a green with 2 bunkers 4th-145m bunkerless green 5th-233m dogleg right bunkerless green 6th-372m dogleg right with an internal OOB on the right edge of the fairway which leads all players to play left centre off the tee to open up the hole 7th-315m straight hole and uphill with a long fairway bunker on the right 165-215m off the tee to avoid 8th-444m short Par 5 slight dogleg left uphill with a teeshot over the crest to an undulating fairway and a green with 2 bunkers shortside 9th-201m par 3 with a teeshot over a gully and a bunker short right There are 18 alternate tee mounds which alter the Par on the 3rd, 5th and 9th - but mostly the same angle to the green. Played here 28/09/2011 with $12 green fees. I hear there are plans to add more holes, but they really need to improve on the 9 holes they already have. They could start by improving the grass on the fairways, replacing the couch greens with bent grass greens and adding a few more bunkers. Not bad for the beginner but to entice better golfers the course conditioning must improve.

Another extremely hilly course close to the city with wonderful views of the Gulf St Vincent. The course itself is pretty ordinary with the fairways probably not in as good condition as they should be. At times the wind would really whip around the course making it very tough. The fact is though that the course is really quite simple, highlighted by the two super short par 4's at 244 metres and 236 metres. The 236 metre 4th dog-legs to the right and is very reachable. Not a course to play if you are looking for any quality, or a gentle walk for that matter. Bring your hiking boots. TandM

Great views from what is really pretty basic golf. Hilly(bring your fitness),and a couple of just plain dumb golf holes.Eg the 3rd and 8th are unrealistic to play well as other reviewers have mentioned. Greens are pretty ordinary on most holes. $11 for 9 holes.
