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
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
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.
