Played this course today & was pleasantly surprised. I have played a fair number of sand scrape courses in my time & I rank this my no 2, behind Bannockburn (Vic). The course was pleasant to the eye , with plenty of trees, good fairway grass, even though the texture & colouring was a bit mixed. The scrapes were in very good condition & well raked, with a good layer of sand, for accurate scrape putting. I would happily play this course again.

Altho only 5372m.,Talbot is testing as suggested by the ACR of 68 against par 67.There are several longish holes eg 13th @ 421m. and15th @421m,both par 4,and17th par 3 @ 197m 7th@191m.and6th@207m;all these with the typical small greens of a sandscrape course will test most players.The course has goodish fairways,few bunkers but a creek running thru the 13th and 14th adds interest and difficulty.The best holes are 3rd,par 5,not long but narrowing as you approach the scrape,8th,short par 4 with strongdogleg left,13th,par 4 OOB left crossing creek @280-300m.and turning right,14th par3,15th long par4 bending right.Visually the course is very attractive with many stately gums,green fairways and white sand greens.No summer golf here,but a lovely venue on a sunny autumn day and a challenge.Well worth a visit,especially for ''Sandscrape virgins''.You may be surprised how much enjoyment you have on an old style traditional country Victorian course!
