Played here today for a promotional $10 green fee. There has finally been some good rain in the previous 2 weeks, after a long dry extended summer. They must have still been watering, as the course was very sodden. There was no run & balls were even plugging on the fairways. Approaches to greens were very damp & the grass was too wet & muddy to mow, so it was long as well. The greens were slow but good & true. It's a fairly typical public access course & probably only has about 4 or 5 interesting holes. Nothing special.

The greens are well cared for and slow but true - almost everything else about this course is dire. Huge swathes of the course off-fairway are literally just dirt - many of the fairways don't fare much better. The back 9 gets really repetitive - up and down long paddocks - and you're surrounded by sh*tty outer suburbia. If they spent some of the money from the giant pokie casino on-site looking after it, it mightn't be too bad, but with Growling Frog and Mandalay in easy striking distance, bar for practice, I don't know why you'd bother...

Played 2 weeks ago for the first time in about 7 years.  What a change.  Great cover on the fiarways equal to many Murray courses, good tees and consistant greens.  Does get very rough off the fairways.  Local members were very helpful as we were playing in their comp.  Membership prices are extremely good.  Great facilities with TAB, pokies, bars and meals.  We'll definately be going back more often.

For $27, this course is well worth a visit. The most surprising aspect of this course were the greens. For the price we paid, they represented outstanding value. They ran true and pretty quick, no mean feat for September after a reasonable amount of rain during the week. No there aren't any bunkers, but is that a bad thing on a public track - where their maintenance can be really hit and miss? I say not. In no way is getting up and down easy. A vast majority of the greens are elevated, and short-siding yourself here (as I did a few times) means real trouble. It is quite patchy in places but roll it over as we did and it's no issue. Couldn't disagree more with a previous poster that it's vulnerable to being ripped up by a low marker. We played off the back tees and whilst the first few holes were reasonably sedate, it bares teeth from the 8th onwards. On a really wind day it would be a brute, I'm certain. The front nine does get a bit par-four laden but it's not a big issue. 1st is a great starting hole, and 18 is a great finishing hole where I'm certain a few hole-in-ones have kick-started a big night at the bar. The pro was a friendly fella and we played with two members who couldn't have been better blokes. They even left with our numbers for a hit in the future. Those with golf egos can stay away, but myself (single figure marker) and mates had a great time. As I said earlier, represents great value at a scratch over $25.

Okay, 2 years on since my last review and I must say, the course is in excellent condition for February, despite the heatwave(s) in January. Fairways and Greens in good shape and there is plenty of run.New resident Pro is very helpful and has had some influence on course conditions.

Playing this course 6 months ago, it was in the best condition seen in years, however after playing there last week, I will avoid it - the greens are now all patchy, looks like they are not watering them enough.
