Played here today on a nice Autumn day. Hadn't played here before & didn't know what to expect. The scorecard held the first clues with a par of 73 & slope of 128. I then went ahead & played 5 shots better than my handicap. I think that the rating is a bit generous. The course is a 9 holer with alternate tees. A pleasant stroll around with the 5th & 6th being the highlights, one being a tricky dogleg par 4 & water carry par 3. Greens were fairly slow & not consistent. $20 green fees were about the right fit. Nice course, but nothing special.

This course is a little gem of a 9 hole track. Maintained entirely by volunteers, it is always presented impeccably. The strength of this course is that it will yield to good playing, and punish poor play. Only 4 bunkers on the course, with the 9th green side the only real troublesome one. However water is prevalent on the 4th & 5th holes in particular, and a usually dry culvert winds it way through across the 2nd and 3rd holes, a factor on the 3rd. All holes run North / South, with interesting doglegs on the 1st and 6th. Large greens that look straightforward, but aren't adds to the enjoyment. Kapunda has an excellent balance of tough long par 4's, and excellent shorter par 4's. The 3 par 3's are all challenging, and the par 5's offer a scoring chance. Would have to be one of the best value courses in Australia to play. Finally welcome the extra shots on the 128 slope rating, which seems a tad generous.

Played Thurs 1/10/15. Joined in the Thursday comp which, for the first time, had 30+ players and members were quite chuffed about that. Course looks a treat from the clubhouse and, condition wise, does not disappoint. The 9 different tees for the 18holes are well done, changing the par on a couple as well as the length. Fairways are well grassed, greens are large in the main and true although not particularly fast. Only a few bunkers but doglegs and trees make for more interest. Slope rating seems a bit high for the layout but accepted the extra strokes happily. Could not get near the winners' 48 pts however! Course is maintained by volunteers who do a fantastic job. Special mention to Dave... well done. Close to town a bonus and change from $20 to top it off. Well worth a round. The Relic.

I've played this course about 8 times in the last 2 years and 4 times over the last 2 months. The course is continually improving and credit must go to the volunteers that look after and maintain the course. Green Fess are $20 for 18 and $12 for 9 with 1/2 price fro Juniors. Kapunda is very good value at these prices and should be played if your in the area. Kapunda is a 9 hole course and could be considered long totalling in at 6075m for the 18. Par is 73 with a ACR of 72 so it is no push over. Different tee blocks are used for the back 9. This completely changes the par on some holes so the course plays very different from front to back 9. There are 3 par 3's with 2 that play tough. Par all three and your most likely having a good round. There are 4 par 5's with the 10th being the easiest to give up a good birdie opportunity with a well placed tee shot. There are 11 par 4's with a with a mixture of straight and dog legs. Four of the straight ones have a water hazard (rare to have water in it) crossing the fairway at driving distance for longish hitters so laying up needs to be considered. The 18th offers up the easiest of birdie chances if your a longish hitter as the hole is only 239m long. The back half of a long skinny green is guarded by a bunker. This was much tougher hole when it was a 170m par 3. The Fairways are a mixture of grasses but are well covered. The rough is a combination of long fairway grass, long natural grass and weeds, bare hard pan dirt and loss sand under and around some trees. The player will need to play a variety of shots when venturing of the short cut. Off the fairway it's a mixture of pines and gums ranging from medium to tall. There is one fairway bunker 1st & 10th on the right side of the dogleg right stopping the greedy shaving the corner making the long par 4 10th a hard opening hole. There are three green side bunkers. Front left on the par 4 3rd & 12th, guarding back half of the par 3 9th & par 4 18th and short right on the par 5 7th and 16th. The greens are of medium to large size, predominately flat and roll true. They are not quick so you can attack most putts and not have to give the hole away fro short range.

Measures 3042m Par 36 with two par 3s ranging from 143-172m, five par 4s ranging from 328-381m and two par 5s ranging from 444-491m. Course has a short-to-medium sized pine tree-lined layout with mostly couch/kikuyu grass fairways and teebeds and medium-sized bent grass greens. There are 5 bunkers on the 9-hole course. There are a few alternate back nine tee mounds which change the par of the hole. 1st-387m Par 4/ 10th-427m Par 5 - slight dogleg right with a fairway bunker right at the dogleg corner to a green with a leftside bunker. 2nd-332m / 11th-377m - straight and slightly uphill with a pond short right of the bunkerless green. 3rd-355m / 12th-336m - straight hole and slightly downhill with a yellow-staked gully across the fairway about 120m out from the green with a bunker left. 4th-381m / 13th-337m - slight dogleg left and gently uphill to a bunkerless green. 5th-143m / 14th-173m - with a teeshot over a small pond to a bunkerless green. 6th-451m Par 5/ 15th-391m Par 4 - slight dogleg left with OOB Kidman Road on the right to a bunkerless green. 7th-491m / 16th-442m - straight hole and slightly uphill with the storage pond on the right with a new bunker short right of the green. 8th-330m / 17th-310m - straight hole with an elevated teebed next to the storage pond to a bunkerless green. 9th-172m uphill Par 3 / 18th-240m Par 4 - slight dogleg right to a green with a bunker short right. Interesting layout with the 6th green coming back to the clubhouse where you play holes 7-9 to the storage pond then back to the clubhouse. The pond to the right of the 2nd and 7th greens uses its reclaimed water to water the course. Played here on 30/09/2011 through the frequent moderate showers and gusty southerly winds. Green fees $12 for 9 holes or $20 for all day. Course is approximately 250m above sea level and the town has around 2500 people. Kapunda has a good variety of holes and is as equally as challenging as the 3 other grass green courses north to Port Augusta - being Balaklava, Burra and Clare. Close to the Barossa Valley for other full-length grass green options.
