Royal Park Public Golf Course
9 Holes
PAR 68
4868 M


Situated in picturesque Royal Park, an attractive challenging course only 3kms from the city. This course has been the nursery for many golfers who went on to a career as professional golfers, including Peter Thomson (club champion at the age of 16, in 1945) who won the British Open 5 times, Gus Jackson and Mick Ryan. The club started in 1903 and celebrated it’s centenary in 2003.

Played this course today & was pleasantly surprised how good it was for a well trodden public course. It was in good condition & greens were reasonably slick. Final hole is an interesting short par 4, but it has an overhanging tree guarding the green, which stops it from being too easy. Course is a 9 holer, but played it twice from same tees, which adds up to a fairly short 4632 Metres. Good fun course!

Great 9-holer close to the city. Kept in pretty good condition these days, especially for a $16 round. Not a lot of surprises off the tee and definitely a beginner-friendly course - par 5s are short and greens are relatively slow - but plenty of fun and I've been back many a time.

its a nice 9 hole public golf course, for this reason it means that its busy weekend mornings. great course for beginners, if you're the type of person that fancys themselves as a "good golfer", then go somewhere els and pay the price $$$.

Royal Park is a fairly short and flat 9 hole course. Beginners should look here as I would rate this course as friendly (never easy!), I suspect more accomplished players would be able to score low due to the yardages on the holes here. No problems with losing balls here, I always walk out with more balls that I started with. Course is kept in fairly good nick, teebox turf can be stiff at times. A heads up for first timers - the second hole is a 5 minute walk across the train tracks. Possibly one of the few places in the world where you could play golf with the roar of lions and elephants to be heard coming for the zoo.

Have played here a couple of times after work in the past week. Really enjoy the course. Its a fast round and really helps to get some confidence in the game. Also in fantastic condition at the moment. I wouldn't say it is anywhere near challenging as i putted for birdie on six or seven of the holes after a fair while not playing, but still great fun.

Played RP for the first time last Sat. Course seemed to be in fantastic condition, fairways, greens and tee's were all beautiful. RP is a pretty straight forward course, starting off with a nice little par 3 to give you some confidence. Even with the howling wind I was putting for either birdie or par on most holes. $15 for 9 holes, I'll definitely come back for another round. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a fun and not too challenging game.
