i think its a great course for beginners like me.. i dont usually
see many ‘hoons’ only because ive played there once..
nice tees half dead greens.. a strange drop par3 and a hilly par
4 with a blind shot off the tee.. all the holes challenge me but
you can alway think of a way to get a nice shot to green in 2..
one water hazard near tee of 1st hole and no bunkers.. mix of
straight and cornering courses.. hole 8 and 9 your best off
drawing or fading then a shot to green with 6 iron..
My wife and I played here recently, and we won’t be
bothered going back. Although the course is nice and easy for
beginners (my Mrs.), it has been taken over by bogans. We played
on a Saturday afternoon, and the queue at the first tee was
appalling. Not only were there 8 groups waiting to tee off, but
half of them were slurping cans of bourbon and coke – and
obviously not their first for the day.
When on the course, we were subjected to a group of half a dozen
drunken hoons, screaming and yelling, wearing thongs, two sets of
clubs between the six of them. The group behind us, a lady and
her daughter, were in fear of their safety.
Perhaps we were just unlucky on the day, but we won’t be
back. I hope this course is successful though, as it might keep
the hoons off other courses.
I don't know if there is a better course for a beginner to
start at. 7 short par 4's and 2 par 3's make for a
relaxing stroll. For a 'hackers' course, the greens and
fairways are in incredibly good condition and the locals are
justifiably proud of the work their ground staff puts in. Cheap
rounds are the order of the day and a nice cold beer awaits in
the 'Clubhouse' A purist would vomit all over his Pings
if he were made to play here all his life but for a hit and
giggle, a stroll with the kids or your partner, nine real quick
holes after work or just a bit of fun, Skye's the venue you
are looking for.
For a relaxing social game which is suited for beginners...this
is a definite starters course.
The 4th begins with a hit over a blind hill...make sure you use
the mirror on top of the safety cyclone fence to be able to see
if it's clear over the rise in front.
Watch the cows on the 5th and 6th. Cheap beer at the clubhouse.
I am only new to the sport of golf but found this course an easy
and welcoming start to playing a short 9-hole round of golf on.
The fairways and greens are in good condition considering it is a
public course, there are no bunkers anywhere on the course yet
there are only two water hazards, the only concern being on the
1st hole to the right of the fairway.
Some of the tees are elevated above the fairway/green which gives
you a sense of a bad hit still going a considerable distance,
however on some holes it is difficult to see the group ahead,
dangerous in some areas!
Overall a course I enjoyed, only my 4th round of golf and I had a
61. Also beware on the steep inclines of some holes that you do
not loose your sand bucket to replace divots like I did :-)
Will be going back to the course again soon, gives the average
'hacker' some confidence and room for error, highly
recommend the course to any beginner out there.
this course is a great "hackers" course or a great
course for a beginner. the largest hole on the course is only
300metres which is the first hole. there is one water hazrard on
the right hand side of the first hole. this course was also a
good confidence booster for myself has i had 4 over par. it is a
very relaxed course with hardly any people on there breathing up
ure backside. i really enjoyed playing there and the cheap beer
