North Course
Played here in Nov 2013. Course was in pretty good nick but the fairways could have done with a bit better grass coverage. Some of the holes here were quite fun but too many short par 4's made the round a little boring. Would have preferred to play the South Course but it was booked out for a charity event. The SC looked pretty nice for what I saw.

Par 3 Course
The Par 3 Course at North Adelaide is a short course which measures 1426m Par 54 with holes ranging from 56-148m. There are only 3 holes here greater than 90m in length. The Par 3 course, like the South and North Courses at North Adelaide, are irrigated by either its River' Torrens license or reclaimed effluent water. The Par 3 course has 18 small grass greens which all but the 16th green consist of Santa Ana couch grass. The 16th green consists of bent grass. The teeing grounds are quite disappointing with mostly synthetic tee square mats with some having tiny kikuyu grass teebeds with little grass cover to find a flat spot. There are 9 bunkers here make this layout reasonably interesting and more challenging than the other two Par 54 layouts in Greater Adelaide: Cudlee Creek and Valley View. Highlights include: the 148m 7th (index 1) with the bunkerless green being slightly above the tee mound and the River' Torrens far left; the 74m 9th (index 8) with the greenside bunker right being larger than the Santa Ana couch grass green itself; the 83m 16th (index 6) with the heritage-listed Moreton Bay Fig guarding the tiny 5m long x 5m wide bent grass green with 2 bunkers rear and back right; and the 109m 17th (index 2) to another bunkerless Santa Ana couch grass green. Course access is from War Memorial Drive in North Adelaide. Played here 9th October 2012 with $15 green fees or $11.50 twilight green fees >3pm. Despite being only par 3s one feels the length of these holes are too short to be used as a practice course as full-length golf courses does not generally have holes less than 100m in length. Greater Adelaide has three 18-hole Par 54 golf courses: the other two are Cudlee Creek in the Adelaide Hills and Valley View along the Grand Junction Road (A16) near Modbury. Of Adelaide's Par 54 layouts, the North Adelaide Par 3 course is the shortest but is by far the more bunkered and better conditioned at the moment.

North Course
The North Course at North Adelaide measures 4534m Par 69 with four par 3s ranging from 116-147m, thirteen par 4s ranging from 198-387m and the 409m Par 5 straight 11th (index 3) which plays slightly uphill with the OOB Park Terrace (A21) on the left. Course has kikuyu grass fairways and teebeds with Santa Ana couch grass greens. Unlike, the South Course, the fairways and teebeds are a little bare and patchy in places on the North Course. There are only 4 bunkers on the North Course. There are no water hazards on the North Course. Highlights include: the 387m slight bend right 2nd (index 1) to a small 10m long x 10m wide bunkerless green; the 198m short uphill Par 4 5th (index 15) to another small 15m long x 15m wide bunkerless green; the 116m 13th (index 17) with a bunker short left of the 20m long x 12m wide green with OOB Jeffcott Street far left; the 316m straight 14th (index 10) which is played gently downhill to a green with 2 bunkers; the 260m 17th (index 6) which doglegs 90 degrees left from 180m off the elevated tee above the fairway which then plays uphill to the 15m long x 20m wide bunkerless green from the dogleg corner; and the 131m 18th (index 12) which has a bunker short of the largest green on the North Course a approximately 20m long x 20m wide. The parkland style layout of the North Course is probably more for the beginner golfers. The layout is a little odd with no hole returning close to the clubhouse for refreshments, a few long walks between holes and you have to cross the War Memorial Drive 3 times during your round The back nine is far more challenging and bunkered than the front nine. Given that the Par 3 course has The North Course could use a few more bunkers to increase the challenge. Course access is from Strangeways Terrace in North Adelaide. Played here 9th October 2012 with $22 green fees. There are better public-access courses around

South Course
The South Course at North Adelaide GC measures 5884m Par 71 with four par 3s ranging from 130-183m, eleven par 4s ranging from 323-406m and three par 5s ranging from 423-455m. Course has fairly lush kikuyu grass fairways and teebeds at the moment with penncross bent grass greens which are flat and mostly small sized. The largest greens (at 3, 10, 11, 14 & 16) are about 20m long. There are a few couch grass teebeds at 8 &12-16. There are many bunkerless holes (at 2, 5, 9, 10, 14, 17 & 18) with a total of 26 bunkers on the South Course. There are no water hazards on the South Course. Highlights include: the opening 348m straight 1st (index 7) with 2 fairway bunkers 220 & 240m off the tee on the left to avoid to a 15m long x 10m wide bunkerless green; the 137m 12th (index 18) with 2 greenside bunkers guarding the narrow green measuring approximately 15m long x 5m wide; the 356m straight 13th (index 3) with 2 fairway bunkers capturing anything right off the tee to a green guarded by 2 shortside bunkers; the 180m 16th (index 12) with an elevated teeshot to a 25m long 2-tier green below which has a ridge across the middle; and the 398m 17th (index 1) which doglegs 90 degrees right from 250m off the tee with thick low scrubs and trees along the entire right to the dogleg which then plays gently downhill to the green from 150m out of the bunkerless green. The parkland style layout of the South Course is probably more for the experienced golfer rather than the other 2 courses here. The South Course is a fairly easy walk with most greens and flags visible from the tee mound. The back nine is far more challenging and bunkered than the front nine. The layout is a little odd with no hole other than the 2nd & 18th greens returning close to the clubhouse for refreshments Course access is from Strangeways Terrace in North Adelaide. Just remember in summer daylight saving time the 1st fairway is used as a practice range from 3pm, which closes the 1st & 2nd holes after 3pm Played here 10th October 2012 with $27 green fees. Not bad course conditioning for a public access course.

South Course
Loved the South course, great location. Now that the parking has been rectified there is not doubt that I will come back. For those who have expirienced the parking issue there it was a real problem, but management have overcome this issue by giving all golfers a receipt that they put onto the car dash board which intern gives the user unlimited parking for the day.

South Course
There are some huge positives for the South course at the city of Adelaide golf links, with the location being excellent and the fairways usually in fantastic condition. The view from the elevated tee on the 3rd is exceptional, and you really want to hit a good shot from up there. The greens however have rarely been in good condition. They are usually very long, causing the ball to bobble around the place. At times your round can be quite slow being a public course in the city, and I believe that bookings are now essential for the South course. Plus, with many holes running parallel to roads, the chance of hitting a car is rather high, hey Matt. Despite the criticism, there are a couple of nice holes. The pick would be the par 3 16th, a downhill hole to a large two-tiered green that can see some very tricky putts. The par 4 17th with a huge downhill slope on the dog-leg and the par 4 14th are also both worth a mention. A staple course for many in Adelaide due to its location, at the end of the day it isn't a bad course, and if they got the greens right it could be a very good one. TandM
