What a disappointment. Rough Greens, Rough Tee off area and rough fairways. Only managed to play nine holes. Such a disappointment, as we played there several years ago and had fond memories. Will never play there again.....

Goat track.

If I thought I’d played the worst courses in Tassie before this one (Cygnet and Huon Heights spring to mind) then we have a new challenger!

This is a course for very ‘social’ players only and given that plenty of rural Tassie 9-hole courses charge $10 in green fees, this place is significantly worse yet has a fee of $13. I couldn’t see where this money was going!

Watering was to tees and greens only and even then it was pretty hit and miss. The tees were like moonscapes and the greens, well they played like they had just been cored (but of course they hadn’t), so hit and hope. The fairways were mostly dead grass with some weeds for colour.

One interesting hole was the 3rd which was a dog-leg right around a tidal lagoon (just to top off my wonderful experience the tide was out so this was pretty unattractive too) with the hole changing direction through about 160 degrees as the dog-leg just kept continuing. I wonder how far it is to go straight at the green over the lagoon (probably a 250m fly) (update – Google Earth tells me it’s 244.5m from tee to reach the edge of the green…) and whether anyone has ever achieved it?

Plenty of short holes (it’s only 2092m for the par 35 front nine) with the 7th being a 400m par 5 and the 8th being a 218m par 4 – not much of a challenge there.

If you’re in the area and want to play golf better off going to Pittwater, or Richmond, or for the best of Tasie 9-holers, Tasman GC down near Pt Arthur.

A half star out of five only because of the 3rd hole…

Forcett Lakes Golf course is a decent public course. The holes are short though, which beginners will find easy to tackle. Nice scenery. Well maintained. Nice little course.
