great course, challenging pin placements, and generally well
looked after course (except for the bunkers, need to rake them
with passion to make it light/fluffy sand). a few holes that
required hitting off elevated tees, which i always find fun. The
wind down the back of the course can really pick up as well which
makes for interesting play. pro shop staff were more than heapful
even lending me some pants as no jean shorts are allowed.

played this course 3 weeks ago and it was great, not sure about
some of the other comments either about the worst in hobart.
Greens were quick and true, fairways were cut short and in good
condition, ball sat up beautifully, pins were cut tight though,
maybe they had a comp or something on that weekend so that was
tough. I had a chat to a member of the club and he told me the
club had lost all the greens a year ago, but all seems good now,
he also said the course struggled in summer(maybe that was the
issue for some of the other reviews). all in all not as good as
Royal however it is more interesting in terms of character, much
better than Claremont and North West Bay, Tasmania was dry and
patchy when I played, (water issues i was told) so it was hard to
judge.Play Royal first no doubt, but to me Kingston played better
than the other 3.
A well established club on the southern outskirts of Hobart, with
a bit of a posh feel. The course is very well kept, but has a
generic suburban feel with standard tree lined fairways that run
fairly close to one another. Without the discount offered by the
Golf Course Guide this course would be well overpriced.
Played this course in April 07 and found it to be very pleasant
and a reasonable challenge too. Not too difficult, as my very
wayward drives were sometimes better off than the moderately bad
drives! But some very good holes in the 18 too. Fairways were
perfect and greens were quick and true. Par 3 – 16th, about
150m, was a great looking hole and a real challenge too with the
wind blowing. Will enjoy a return visit in the future. Also not
sure about the comment from other users about worst major course
in Hobart. Royal and Tasmania are definitely better courses but
the others are not as good as Kingston Beach.
Of the five – 18 hole courses in Hobart this is the most
An average golf course in average condition.
The only highlight of the day was the trip up the travellator,
now that was fun.
Best play somewhere else…
We were charged $50 each to play, plus $25 each for hire clubs,
no cost for pull cart , midweek on a slow day in February 2006.
Pretty expensive for a course like that. The pro never enquired
if we were members of another club, which we are, of the two most
prestigious on the Gold Coast.
No info was given on the blank cards about toilet facilities on
the course, a problem for my wife.
When we returned at 3pm hoping for some refreshments, after a
pretty hot round, the bar and cafe was closed, the woman in the
office was in a foul mood because someone had left a seat up in
the ladies (!) and we just got out of there, probably never
Even a birdie on the last hole for my wife and a net 72 did not
make up for the unfriendliness. It was he only time in Tasmania
we found the locals so grumpy.

A challenging but not difficult course to play. No 1 is elavated
162m Par 3 with sharp drop away of the fairway.It is walkable
with some undulation and several tees elevated.Hire a Cart if you
want to save your legs. Nice wide fairways and water comes into
play on several holes. The rough is kind providing you don't
go too far offline.
