Played Sat 18th and Thurs 24th Oct. This course seems to suit the mid to high handicap player. The Bogey Golfer. Fairways are in good nick and the greens are true with not much borrow anywhere. A few bunkers around, but nothing too deadly. Paul, my guide for the day, thought the greens were slow but I found them spot on. A couple of long par threes and fours but no slash your wrists hard hole. A few hills to negotiate for the walker, all in all a good walk. Buggies available to hire. Small friendly bar and clubhouse and a resident pro to look after you. Bit of a drive out from Nuri through the vineyards to a pleasantly designed course. Many from the surrounding 'Resort' type courses prefer the more laid back style of the Valley. Do not miss a chance to play here. The Relic.

Time for updateBarossa Valley measures 6026m Par 72 with five par 3s ranging from 144-210m, eight par 4s ranging from 298-381m and five par 5s ranging from 430-477m. Course has a mixture of common & Santa Ana couch grass fairways with patches of naturally grown rye grass and kikuyu grasses. The layout is mostly sand-based with sand cover to a depth of 3m across most of the course, including the rough and treeline. The 15-20m long SR 10-19 bent grass greens are mostly flat, with no tiers/ridges or any pronounced undulation without being too slow. In terms of hazards, there are 4 bunkerless holes (at 5, 6, 12 & 17) with a total of 23 bunkers on the course. There are no water hazards in general play on the course. Highlights include: the 298m slightly uphill 4th (index 16) with a slight right turn fairway with 3 fairway bunkers off the tee to a green with a bunker short left; the 477m sweeping dogleg left 5th (index 8) to a 20m long x 15m wide bunkerless green; the 355m slight bend right 10th (index 9) to a green with a bunker short right; the 434m 11th (index 11) which doglegs 45 doglegs right from 200m off the tee with a heavily treelined dogleg corner right to a green with a bunker short right; the 210m slight uphill 17th (index 7) with a 20m long bunkerless par 3 green; and the 372m slightly uphill 18th (index 1) which has a gentle dogleg left bend to a green with a bunker short left. The par 3s (at 3, 6, 12, 15 & 17) are mostly unbunkered, and apart from back nine par 3s, all are relatively flat and unchallenging. The par 5s (at 2, 5, 7, 11 & 14) are varied, apart from the straight 14th, all have a dogleg turn and are mostly bunkered. In the 1970s, an agreement was made with Wolf Blass to pipe water and wastewater from the winery to the course. As such, there are 2 types of water used for irrigation: 50% comes from the winery and 50% is from bore water. Course access is from Golf Course Road, about 8km north Nurioopta (or 33km/20 minutes from the Gawler town centre. Course is only 4km off the Sturt Highway (A20) with 3km of dirt road sections along Moppa and Golf Course Roads. Nurioopta has a population of around 4500 people. Located in the Barossa Valley the course elevation is approximately 320m above sea level. Played here 17th October 2012 off the back plates with $35 green fees with $24 Wednesday green fees. Barossa Valley is one of THREE 18-hole Par 72 golf courses in the Barossa Valley region (others being Gawler & Tanunda Pines).

You get a real sense of exclusion walking around the Barossa Valley Golf Club as any man-made sounds are few and far between except for when there's a bit of traffic on the course. Characterised by excellent greens, the course is reasonably tough with areas where you simply will not find your ball. The first hole doesn't do the course justice though, and would perhpas be better if the course played with the back 9 first. The 10th being a short par 4 which rewards those that hit a straight ball with an easy second shot to a two-tiered green. However, going with the driver is risky as hitting it right can put you into one of those areas where balls aren't often found. The finishing holes are the first and second hardest meaning concentration for the full 18 is a must. I'm sure many rounds have been hurt by a poor finish here. Barossa is a course that really rewards the straight hitters, and with excellent greens, generally good fairways and not a lot of noice, there's plenty of enjoyment to be had while playing a round here.

A gem of a course, tight fairways, true greens and an interesting layout. In very good condition considering the drought. $30 green fee is very reasonable. 5 par 3s for men, but one of them is 210m long, short 218m par 4 for ladies. Par 72 for both, rating 71 for men and 70 for ladies. You should certainly make time for a game in between wineries when in the Barossa Valley.

Great course & a challenging day out. Greens some of the best in Aouth Australia. A little out of the way but well worth the drive to this pretty course. Very close to wineries & top quality restaurants -hard to beat the location.

Barossa is a very good course, I would have to rate it in the top 5 country courses in SA. Excellent, fast greens… A quality, subtly-undulating layout. A number of blind drives & second shots are required on the par 4’s & 5’s. The 6th & 15th holes are two of the prettiest par 3’s in SA, whilst the 17th (a par 3 of over 210m) is a brute. Well worth the drive.
