Course Reviews

Course Name Mount Gambier Golf Club
Location South Australia, Australia
Comments from Maurice Faroe, SE South Australia, Australia
This course is rated as one of the finest. An undulating course which will reward the well placed drive; with generous slick greens, and lovely surroundings. Two of my favourite holes would be the par 3 8th, from an elevated tee position you are looking down on the green, approx 150m. Club selection is important. Bunkers on either side of the green, the right side will catch the shortish shot the one on the left will grab the longer mis-directed hit. The green is long and narrower than most on the course, and quite often the pion is over the right side bunker. If you are long you will face an uphill chip onto the green that then runs away from you. The next hole is the 11th, a par 5 485m down the slope. This hole snakes its way down to a large green with a bunker that covers the left side of the green and a smaller one on the right. The tee shot you face gives a generous landing area but a long straight hit will find a fairway bunker that is visible from the tee. However, if you can shape a ball right to left and just miss the bunker you can then have a go at the green. Not too much left though, for you will then be blocked out by some trees. This hole gives the long hitter a good chance at an eagle.
