First time at Ulverston in late December 2016 and the course well surpassed expectations.  If travelling in the NW of Tasmania put it on your to-do list.  It's like playing golf in a forest with wide fairways.

I have played Ulverstone a few times in the last month. Like every other course in the region, it is currently preferred lies due to winter rain. Otherwise, the course presents very well. Greens are true and well maintained. In terms of layout, I didn't find the fairways too tight. For the most part, not too much strife off them unless you are unlucky enough to find a really tight spot. Opening Par 5 is certainly reachable, but the others will test most decent club golfers either due to distance or hole design. Most will be able to find the Par 3s with their irons and not have to resort to hybrids or woods. However, most of the Par 3s are uphill, so picking the right club can be difficult. Most Par 4s are long and slightly uphill, and I found that the challenge increased as the round progressed, which I always think is a nice touch. I would recommend the course to other visitors and it is reasonably priced at $35 a hit. Pro shop staff are friendly and accommodating. A ranger patrols the course on weekends, but he is polite. For mine, the nicest walk of the 18 hole courses on the North West coast with no shortage of nice views. I did not visit the clubhouse but it looks nice from the outside, overlooking the 9th and 18th greens and the 10th tee.

I played Ulverstone today. The greens were utterly immaculate, faultless is trueness, speed (quite fast, maybe +11 stimp)and visually impressive. The f'ways are tight, I benched the driver early on. Good lies on the short stuff, though a few grass varieties gives them a bit of a patchwork look in parts - though no complaints from this golfer. The rough is well tree'd, tough but not penal. The opening 6 or so holes are reasonably straight forward, but then the doglegs and blind tee shots kick in. The 1st 9 is certainly easier than the 2nd. I don't think there are any bunkers on the front 9, and only a handfull of knee-deep ones coming home. No water or OOB and a lack of sand are the weaknesses, though the tight f'ways and slick greens must be respected. This a great course for all levels of golfing skill. General conditioning is good. Very friendly members and staff. Thumbs up here.

A visit to Ulverstone Golf Club in early November was well worth it. After torrential rain the day before, the course was amazing. Stunning vistas and challenging holes keep on presenting throughout the 18. Accurate golf is certainly the game needed around this tree lined course.My love affair with trees continued, but didn't deter from loving every minute of playing. Greens had been recently top dressed, which was bad timing on our behalf. Good to see a Club Shop Pro looking after the visitors. Other courses in the North get plenty of publicity, well deserved, I must say. But don't go golfing in Tasmania, without visiting this wonderful layout.

Not sure about previous post but this course has obviously changed for the better. Beautiful tight treelined layout with many driving options available. Strong par 4's throughout with some cleverly designed tiered greens which demand respect when fast. My advice is leave a day early and fly into Launceston (or drive from the ferry at Devonport which is 20 mins away). Take a car up to Ulverstone. Play this this beautiful course which will sharpen your game for Barnbougle and Lost Farm which is about 90 minutes drive. Pack the camera and when you drive over the Riverfront entry you know you are in for something really special. Rated 4th in Tasmania and a true hidden gem.

Measures 6104m Par 72 from the back plates with 4 Par 3s ranging from 130-160m, 10 Par 4s ranging from 330-400m and four Par 5s ranging from 440-505m. Not bad greens and teebeds, but fairways as with most Tasmanian golf courses can not cope with the melting of the frosty mornings, and have very slushy areas with makes ball striking a little frustrating.

Most holes are basically the same tee to green shots with many bunkerless greens with slight doglegs to make you think a little, but can all do with many more bunkers and more hazards in general. The course lacks any real challenges for the advanced golfers, but will be very challenging for the social. Best hole is probably the 158m 5th with the only water hazard on the course. But too many similar length holes with no real thought in layout.

Played here 21/7/06 and paid $25 for 18 holes. Average looking clubhouse, may be back in Tassie, but will look for Devonport or even some 9 holers around for a challenge.
