Bannockburn Golf Course is 3km out of town from Bannockburn which is a 20 min drive from the western outskirts of Geelong. It is a sandgreens (scrapes) course but unlike most scraped courses they are not heavily oiled. When damp they produce an excellent even putting surface but when dry they can be a bit gritty. Most tees have a good covering of couch and are fairly level.
The surrounds of the scrapes are also couched and these allow for good lies when chipping onto the sand. The course has just installed a watering system that automatically pumps out recycled water during the night. Some fairways have been given the couch treatment and others are to be done over the next few years.
Like most country courses it is best played during the late winter and spring but it stays open all year and early Sunday Mornings are popular during the summer.
As the couch program progresses the fairways should get better. THe Green Fees are cheap at $10 and this is on an honour system. Although the course is heavily treed you can see that the members have worked hard at keeping it tidy and even my hooked and sliced balls are easily found.
THis course is worth a look, it isn't a plush greens course where you have to wait all the time because it is so crowded and with car pooling we find it much cheaper to play here than paying $35+ elsewhere.
