Inglewood is not one of Vics great golfcourses,but it is a lovely place for a pleasant stroll in the winter sunshine among majestic blue gums.From a golf perspective, the course has 2 major features;the drain/artificial creek which runs across 6 holes and the railway which thru part of the course.On the classic British links,it is not unusual to have a railway as a boundary but here it is an integral part of the course!Greens are fairly typical-about 12m. diameter,black sand cover,mostly flat-a firm putt straight at the hole is more rewarding than looking for the sometimes illusory borrow. The course comprises;5xpar3 (108-216m.)10xpar4(279-400m.)3xpar5(435-501).Unsurprisingly the best or most memorable holes feature the railway or creek-or both. 4th;straight.Creek,20m.wide crosses fairway @ 360m.A layup leaves a shot of a small target,but for most mid/high handicappers a 2nd shot to fly the hazard is ambitious. 9th;111m.OPlayed over creek and railway to half hidden green. 17th;279m.Stroke 2 despite its length;best hole on course.Drive over railway to narrow treelined target,OOB right,then over creek just 30m. short of green,road and OOB behind.A real card wrecker! 18th;108m.All about the creek,just 20m. short of green demanding a precise tee shot. Altogether a good balance between long and short holes in each par group,with the 2nd(216m.)5th(389)and10th(400m.)requiring considerable clout and 3rd(279m.)9th,17th and 18th needing a deft touch. Inglewood has limitations-several flat straight holes offset by others of real character.The town guide says-gold nuggets are still being found:so,when you take a divot inspect the ground closely before applying the content of your sand bucket!

There are 18 black soil scrapes with mostly straight holes and no bunkers. There is natural grass on the fairways with some narrowish tree-lined fairways on some holes. There is a railway line that runs adjacent to the course which is GUR. There is also a channel that runs through the course in play which is a hazard. Volunteer-run country course with basic golf facilities. Fees are $5 The course closes from October til the week before Easter each year, so it is played as a winter course. The clubhouse is not too bad for functions. Course access is from the Calder Highway on the eastern side of the town. Inglewood is a small town of 700 people approximately 180m above sea level about 30km south-east of Wedderburn and 45km north-west of Bendigo. Closest grass green courses are in Bendigo.
