Fairly easy course in good condition. Good course for beginners & yet a good enjoyable challenge for the experienced golfer. Had a very relaxed game today & was surprised with this little gem tucked away in the "burbs"

What a huge improvement and a great difference from when I used to play this course many, many years ago. Enjoyed it so much that about 18 months I joined the Burnley Golf Club. A really friendly bunch of men and women of various shapes, sizes, creeds and golfing abilities.  Sure it's NOT the National or Huntingdale, but its also not as easy as some might think plus it's a very affordable place to hone your golfing skills. Staff; like the members are a great bunch as well. For me its just perfect !!!

Burnley has come a very long way in the last few years with a lot of work going into improving the greens and overall condition of the course. The best 9 hole public course in Melbourne perfectly suited to beginners as its not long and there are not many traps protecting the greens. However if you are a low handicapper, do not underestimate the difficulty of shooting under par for 18 holes. The recent trainee pro-am had a winning score of just -2. With small greens in excellent condition for a public course and tight fairways this course will surprise many. Friendly staff and a welcoming player base make Burnley a 9 hole course everyone should check out.

It's getting there... Green are so much better than a year ago, if but a little slow still. They run pretty true and can be really tricky to get your approach (usually only a wedge though) close if theyre in a tough location. fairways are pretty dry, but it sits up nicely on the couch. If you're a long hitter I would just leave they big dog in the bag. not that you can get into much trouble. Practice green and chipping/bunker are pretty good too.

Burnley is what it is, a short flat course that is conveniently near the city. Greens have been renovated over the past few years so putting can be very tricky when the flag is at a difficult location. Layout is forgiving for the right handed slicer as there is no hole where a right handed slice can go out of bounds. A missed drive to the left on the 2nd and 3rd hole can be out of bounds. Original grass was not drought resistant, has since been replaced with couch grass. Lots of on-going course improvement projects with extensive drainage being phased in.

Measures 2132m Par 33 with three par 3s ranging from 117-182m and six par 4s ranging from 220-323m. Course conditioning is reasonable. Fairways are a little bare in places but mostly green, teebeds are flat with good grass cover and greens are a little slow. Holes worthy of note include the 313m 4th with a fairway bunker 40m short right on the fairway with a green guarded by a bunker short. The 150m 7th with its 2 tiered green which slopes to the front with 1 bunker short left guarding the front. The 182m 9th has a fairway bunker some 30m short in the middle of the fairway for any mishit and the large green is guarded a bunker short left and over the back. Played here 14/11/2010 with green fees currently $15.40. Not too bad for a quick short game practice.
