Played here today. I came with no idea what to expect & was pleasantly surprised. A great challenge & lush course in the middle of summer. Like most courses, hit it straight & it's easy, but deviate & the tree lined fairways will swallow you up! It's flat, has a fair smattering of bunkers & just a few hazards, with the added bonus of aircraft entertainment! Nice course!

Played here on 1pm on a Saturday - the place was chockas but we got around in just under 4hrs. Given the last 4 days of 42+ heat, i wasn't expecting the course to be in decent nick - especially on the drive out behind the run ways of the airport - all the grassed land was yellow due to being cooked by the sun. The course was in stunning condition. Couch fairways, a couple holes with kikuyu grass, a couple uneven tee boxes, the greens we in really good condition. A credit to the ground staff given the severe heat. Pretty straight forward course, as previously mentioned, tree lined, stay straight = good scoring potential, otherwise it's punching out from the trees. Good layout - don't need driver on all holes. The 18th 155m par 3 was tough to hit the green, it appeared to be about maybe 20m in length, and about 8-10m in width. A temporary hole? For $27.50 for a weekend, i don't think you can go wrong. It's a nice novelty, and sometimes a little off putting when it feels like a boeing is going to clip your hat whilst it's taking off. Will be back here again. Absolutely.

Can't fault the value for money here at all. For $24 for 18 holes, you're getting a very decent golf course. Drive it straight and you'll score well - go off line and a tree-lined layout will cause you to cough up shots. Some really well designed holes here, that make you think where to hit as opposed to pulling out driver and let it land where it may. Only con is the 18th, temporary as I understand it, is an awful finishing hole at present. Our 4ball match came down to 18 and was a damp squib. If you're teeing it up here in a match with mates, make it a 17 hole affair - trust me on that. But all in all, with 30min or so access from CBD, this course is well worth it.

Love this course. Hidden away behind the airport, it is a little gem that not many know about. Course is in very good condition at the moment. Fairways can be tight in places and greens a little on the small side. Good challenge for golfers of any level. Bunkers are in need of a makeover, with many lacking any real sand coverage. BUT, for $25 a round, and not even needing a booking on most weekdays and some weekends, it's excellent value for money

Played here twice in the last month and overall have been pleasantly surprised. The course is a good challenge and the smaller greens add something to the sometimes straight forward hole layout. At around $25 a round, it's value for money and exciting to see some planes flying around overhead. The fairways were in excellent condition and very green, and the mature trees lining most fairways not only look great but add to the challenge of the course. The greens had apparently been cored recently, not sure if that's why they were so soft and spongy, but they were heavily watered and quite slow. Overall a very enjoyable round and happy to go back anytime.

I played here today & thoroughly enjoyed myself. The course at the moment is LUSH! Beautiful fairways, like carpet on some holes. The greens are soft and spongy and the bunkers aren't in bad shape either for a public course. Actually I'd say the bunkers are above expectation. Every man and his dog was there today being a public holiday but the pace was consistent. Pro shop staff friendly. Have to agree with previous posters about the planes, not many taking off over the course today, they mostly headed out west, but the a380 took off about 3:30pm. Bit of a kick. Excellent value golfing. Pretty sure I used every club in my bag today. Encourage everyone to play it as it is now in excellent condition. I give it 4.5 stars for the whole experience.
