Situated in the Lower South East of South Australia, this picturesque Golf Course is an undiscovered haven for golfing afficianados. Set in the natural bushland of Southern Australia, this challenging course is 6,011 metres long. Wide rolling fairways are set in magnificent native bush.

Millicent Golf Course is held in high regard by the experts. The authoritative golfing magazine, "Australian Golf Digest" (March 2000 edition), ranked Millicent as 80th best course in Australia. We are the highest ranked course between Adelaide and Melbourne, except for the beautiful Horsham Golf Course, which is ranked 30th.

Millicent is ranked 5th in South Australia, behind Royal Adelaide, Kooyonga, Grange West and Grange East. Quite an achievement for a small country course with a small but dedicated staff. The course was also one of only 60 featured in the publication "Australia’s Premiere Golf Courses (1994)"

Despite falling out of the top 100 courses in the country for quite some time now, Millicent is still amongst the top course layouts outside of Adelaide. Having played all grass green country courses in the state, I would rate it alongside the state's top country courses such as Mount Gambier, Murray Bridge, Naracoorte and Lucindale. Millicent measures 6011m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 137-198m, ten par 4s ranging from 310-384m and four par 5s ranging from 460-506m. Course has Santa Ana couch in summer under the winter rye grass fairways which are on top of the dormant couch during the cooler months. There is mostly rye grass rough with moss-like clover grass off the fairways with the medium-sized hybrid mix bent grass greens generally smooth with good roll. The medium-sized gum tree lined fairway layout have ferns in the undergrowth of the treeline which are dense enough to lose a ball in. Despite having no water hazards, all holes, apart from the 1st, are bunkered with a total of 29 bunkers on the course. Course opens with the longest and the only unbunkered hole on the course: the 506m gentle double dogleg right then left 1st (index 6). Other notable holes on the front nine include: the 380m uphill slight dogleg left 4th (index 2) with a bunker short left; the 161m 5th (index 18) with 2 greenside bunkers; and the 320m slight bend left 9th (index 12) with 3 greenside bunkers. Apart from the 4th, the front nine par 4s are short and fairly easy. Overall, the front nine is slightly less bunkered and challenging than the back nine which has more undulating fairways with some blind teeshots and a few smaller greens than the front nine. The back nine opens with the 460m 10th (index 17) with a blind teeshot over a crest which gently doglegs to the right with 2 greenside bunkers, followed by the 369m straight but slightly uphill 11th (index 3) and the 346m slight dogleg right 12th (index 9) which are fairly challenging par 4s with 2 greenside bunkers each. The 2 signature par 3 holes have the tiniest greens on the course: the 137m 13th (index 15) has a downhill teeshot with 2 shortside bunkers; and the 198m slightly downhill teeshot with a greenside bunker short right. Other back nine holes worthy of mention include: the 384m gentle bend left 15th (index 1) with a blind teeshot over a crest with a right-sloping fairway to another small green guarded by a leftside bunker; and the finishing 354m straight 18th (index 5) with a blind teeshot over a crest with a left-sloping fairway to a green with 2 bunkers short. Millicent is one of the larger towns in the South-East region with around 5000 people and is about 50km from either Penola or Mount Gambier. Played here 8th October 2011 with $30 green fees. Course access is 3.5km off Mount Burr Road or about 13km east from the centre of Millicent approximately 120m above sea level in the Mount Burr Forest Reserve. I agree that Millicent is one of the best conditioned courses in the state and along with Mount Gambier are the top country layouts in SA. Highly recommend a round here.

An excellent course, nice layout with fairways and greens in good condition. We played in the Saturday comp with some locals and it was a very friendly experience. If you are in the area it is a must to play.

Played this course in November. What a dead set hidden gem. Miles from anywhere, but the layout and condition is awesome. Carved out of nautural bushland with a sandy base, the course is fully watered and is a credit to their club and local community. At $25.00 for 18 it is also great value.

The best course I've played at in a long time was down here a couple of years ago and it wasnt so good but with the new greenskeeper the course looks the best it has ever looked and its in top shape and with only the greenkeeper and a few volounteers his doin a good job considering having no staff and its still got into the top 5 in South Australia and 76 in Australia this course will be the best course you will ever play on.
