A neat little course whose opening three holes seem uninspiring,
but which begins to really show itself from the fourth onwards. I
thoroughly enjoyed my round, which was boosted by the fantastic
$14.50 all-you-can-play green fees on offer on Mondays. Maybe
because of this there were plenty of golfers around, all of whom
showed complete courtesy in letting me (as a single) play
through. The sequences from 4 through to 9 and from 11 to 14 were
a highlight to me as well as the signature double-dogleg 17.
Course conditioning was not bad for a mid-range course, with only
some bald patches on a few fairways and the temporary 15th layout
detracting from an otherwise lush layout. Will be back again,
mainly due to proximity but also for the great value round.
I am a member at Caboolture and would just to rectify a few
untruths told by STACE and TRENT_GILES. 1. Whose greens are great
when you core them? The greens 10 months of the year are truly
superb. 2. There are no temporary tees and ours are fine. 3. A
downhill drive of 290 metres on the 17th? I think not! The hole
is dead flat and is not downhill at all! There are no trees in
the fairway the fairway is an "s" shape. It is a par 5 so after
you drive 290m (further than the PGA tour average by 23M by the
way) you can play a cut shot at the green to get there in 2 or
play an iron to the corner for a 100m straight approach shot for
your third shot. (Remember it is a par 5 so you are supposed to
get there in 3 not 2 shots.) 4. The 13th hole is being moved, the
first step was moving the fairway and then the green will be
moved. Until then it is a 444m Dogleg Par 4! I challenge anyone
to find better value for money!
I liked the zigzagging 17th hole. There are a few temporary tees
at the moment and the holes have been cored. Signage was poor. I
agree with endzaz who said the 13th is a bit confusing. Good
length holes for ladies.
For $23 with a cart-midweek (18 holes), a bargain I thought.
However, the course is in terrible condition at this time from
fairways to the greens. The greens are brown, they have a
muddy/silty layer on them, no 2 putts stayed on line and the back
nine is a farm apart from 2 lengthy par 3's. I thought the
signature hole being 17 is a joke. At 470m from the back, I hit a
great drive downhill of about 290m. I am in the middle left of
the fairway and you have no shot unless you want to hit a punch
cut 3 iron to the green as there is a large tree in front of you?
Having trees in the middle of a fairway is a no-brainer.
Played this course last week and for my first foray into golf I
had an absolute ball. The course was in good condition the
fairways dished up good lies, when I actually got on them and the
greens ran straight, for my playing partners anyway.
Having only seen one other course recently I was really impressed
with all of Caboolture’s holes.The 17th and 18th are among
the best another I thought was really good must have been 11 from
memory but it was nearly equal to 17 and 18.
All up good value and a superb course very testing for a beginner
and i would expect it would through up a challange for a more
seasoned player. I’m giving this course 4 stars because
there wasn’t much wrong with it. I take the rating system
to rate the course not a system of comparing on course to
Having never played this course I was thoroughly suprised and
pleased to see the quality of caboolture. Fairways and greens ran
straight and true and although a little damp in places
considering the deluge of rain we’ve had recently the
course was in god contidion. Despite the signature hole being
shortened due to renovations this course is enjoyable and
challenging for all levels of golfer. A little short from the
social tees, caboolture plays to a good length off the
men’s tees. The Eighteenth is a great hole to play as
it’s a 45 degree uphill par 3, with a viewing gallery from
the clubhouse. Outer Brisbane’s only stadium hole! Despite
some cranky exceptions ( what’s with Sunday Morning
frustration anyway?) the members and staff were friendly and
courteous and easy to get along with. I played a social round on
Sunday, wouldn’t reccomend as it tok me an hour to get
around the back as I teed on ten, and three hours to get around
the front 9, trailing 150 social comp. players.
Caboolture is one of the, if not THE, best value golf course in
Brisbane! The course is in excellent shape for most of the year,
and to still pay less than $20 for a round is excellent! Not a
long course, but some very testing holes. And the 17th is a super
If you are staying this way, then this course is defintely worth
a look. It has many dog legs, water hazards and ob's to
contend with! The par 3's are challenging with 2 of them just
over 180m. It is in excellent condition and the greens are some
of the finest you will play on. For a good members course it is
A1. Other reviewers have rated it a 4 or 5 which is a joke
because it is not up with Royal Melbourne, The Glades Huntingdale
etc but it is one of the best members course around and is very
affordable at $18 for 18 holes social at the time of writing this
review. If I could give it 3 and 1/2 I would!
Coming to the course, i wasn't expecting much. As a result, i
was pleasantly surprised by all 18 holes! Caboolture's holes
are interesting to play, and challenging, making them a welcome
change from some of the straight up and down courses around
Brisbane. Dog legs, high tee positions, gradual and extreme
sloping fairways - every hole is unique! The 18th is great fun -
a 45 degree uphill par 3. The 17th is also a fun challenge, being
a double dog leg.
Considering the price, i think Caboolture is excellent value for
Although my review may seem biased because i am a member there,
Caboolture is a challenging course that can catch you if your not
careful. The 17th is a great hole providing a wide array of
challenges. As for the 13th, it is currently under some design
changes with the original fairway becoming a driving range and a
new fairway soon to go in to the left of that bringing water into
play. The changes will make the hole much better and will cause
it to blend more with the rest of the course. Every week i
can't wait to play at Caboolture because of the challenges it
produces. Even recent winner on the US Tour, Rod Pampling, our ex
greenkeeper, has struggled on this course.
Caboolture Golf Club would have to be one of those courses that
could surprise those willing to take up the challenge. The
course, although very dry at the time I played it, offered some
unique challenges with regards to course management. The 1st
requires good placement if one is to have an approach shot to the
green. The 17th is a double dog leg hole par 5. The tee shot
landing zone is onto a narrow patch of fairway that steeply
slopes either side into hazards that can swallow one to two
shots. The second shot required is virtually straight at a
fairway bunker and more hazard before the final approach to the
green that is bordered by water to the right.
The 18th although a short par three is seemingly straight up,
onto a green with a blind flag placement. The 13th hole leaves
some to be desired as it appears to be that your hitting into a
cow paddock with a mown area. All up this one hole can be
forgiven when compared to the rest of the course.
The course is well designed and would appear to be very well
organised as far as competitions. This being one of the few
courses I have come across that have the women members ball
spotting and marshalling during a Sunday district comp.
