No bunkers make it too easy. The greens and fairways are good.
Through the area looks dirty and the lakes look more like swamps.
If you havent played this course for a few years you will be
fairly shocked at how improved the course is.
Its in great nick and very very green considering the lack of
Greens are well looked after and there is plenty of water to test
New management has seen a great improvement and chance to work on
Only one gripe is that there is no bunkers but in the future who
knows,with all work thats going on around there wouldnt surprise
me if they will happen
The greens and fairways of this course seemed to be in fairly
good nick. No GIR’s or preferred lies. However as far as
aesthetics go the course and its surrounds are quite ugly.
Refinery at the back, which by the way stinks, and water hazards
that resemble swamps let this course down. Some attention needs
to be paid to other areas of the course, including the tee areas,
besides the greens and fairways. Some bunkers wouldn’t go
astray either. I’d much prefer to spend an extra $2-$3 and
You start the Altona Lakes course off with a short par 3, fairly
easy, no hazards to worry about. The greens here are well looked
after, and there's no way you can blame the fairways (on any
hole) if you miss-hit the ball because they have also been well
kept during the dry summer months.
The 2nd is a 449m p5, usually against a southerly breeze. Water
will come into play for the chronic slices and those who hook may
be in for a new ball aswell due to deep rough and out-of-bounds.
The 3rd, 4th, and 5th holes are all p4. All have their own
distinct characteristic. Water surrounds the fairway on the 3rd,
but shouldn't cause many problems, even for the new comers to
golf. The 4th is a slight dog-leg left, with plenty of water
hugging the inside of the hole. The 5th is a rewarding 355m p4.
The fairway is open, the green is fairly flat and birdies are a
real chance if you hit a good tee shot. Over-hit the green and
you might find water though. The 6th is a 149 p3, not too much to
worry about here either.
The slopey greens on this course will test most, as too will the
difficult pin placements.
The final three holes are enjoyable as that they give you a real
chance to improve your score. There isn't any water to cause
concern, and a good drive on all three will open up birdie or at
least par opportunities for the slightly more advanced golfer.
Good: Nice greens and scenery.
Bad: Needs sand traps. Not every club is needed, may be a little
repetitive/easy for the more experienced golfer.
