The Whyalla Golf club is situated four kilometres from the Whyalla City Plaza, opposite the Whyalla Visitor Centre and Maritime Museum, on the Lincoln Highway as you enter Whyalla in South Australia.
The course presents a unique golfing experience, contrasting vistas to rugged hills, the Spencer Gulf and the imposing Whyalla Steelworks, with lush grassed fairways and generous greens within a challenging 6200m layout.
The course is carved out of saltbush and myall woodland which provides treacherous rough. 15 bunkers protect the undulating greens, generally considered equal to the best in regional South Australia. The back nine is the more challenging and picturesque of the two, with interesting dogleg holes, a monster par 5 and strong par 3s often playing into or across strong prevailing southerly winds.
The Golf Shop offers clubs, golf carts and electric buggies for hire, as well as refreshments and a selection of golfer’s needs.
Competitions are held on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Women are welcome to participate in weekend Competitions, in addition to Women's Competitions on Tuesday and Thursday. Social golf is available on all days. For convenience, visitors should check with the Golf Shop for times, particularly on Saturdays.
