Entertaining, I guess.
Well, that was an experience!
Hopes are high upon driving through the elaborate entrance at this course, but the honeymoon is soon over.
Once you work out where you are supposed to park your car, you make your way to the un-signed "clubhouse" that comprises of a covered deck area, attached to a maze of shipping containers & caravan wrecks.
You are greeted by the Beverley Hillbillies, who will be happy to try and find a golf cart that has enough charge to do 18 holes (we were lucky enough to get the nice red number with the Rabbitohs stickers on the front).
So, once you get past this experience and get to the tee, you will need some time to establish where you are meant to be projecting the golf ball toward, there is no discernible fairway here (or for pretty much the other 17 holes, in all honesty).
Taking your own patch of turf may be an option, otherwise a preferred lie can usually be located within 12-14 club lengths of your ball (and this is when you landed on a "fairway").
We managed to putt out on the 15th green, whilst searching for the 3rd- easier done than one would think.
Which brings me to "death over troubled waters". This could loosely be defined as a bridge, but crossing may lead to an early demise. Not even a rusted-out handrail on this one, recommended for thrillseekers only (rusted out handrails are featured on many holes, so those obsessed with safety won't miss out either).
$25pp would have been better spent at the driving range.
Played many courses over the years and this one has been well and truly awarded the wooden spoon.

I played this course back in 2001 when I was a backpacker. I was
shocked to find a course that actaully ahd dirt fairways and I
took a few photos with the fairways and my beat up hire clubs to
show just how comical it was for friends at home.
There isn’t much to the course, but the young couple that
was running it was great.
He picked me up at my hostel in Hervey, drove me to the course,
golf, hire clubs, lunch and a few drinks for next to nothing.
The greens were bad back then, but by the sounds of things, they
have gone the same way of the fairways too.
Don’t bother. Fairways are bare or at best, weeds. Greens
are longer than the rough. Poor maintenance with no discernible
evidence of greenskeeper. Only evidence that it was a golf course
were the 18 flags. Pales in comparison to Craignish, right next
Possibly the worst course I’ve played on. In wet
conditions, this course is unbearable and in dry conditions
it’s not much better. Bare and hard ground all over the
place. The greens are poorly maintained (if at all).
Save your money and go elsewhere.
A disappointing course in terms of conditioning. Preferred lies
are allowed on all 18 holes.
Low and flat and water on about 10 holes.
The course seems subject to high water table, meaning there are a
LOT of LARGE bare patches on fairways and in the rough.
The bunkers have been allowed to go to grass and weeds.
The greens contain a variety of grasses and are a matter of
guesswork due to their roughness.
The 18th is an interesting hole, but needs some better visual
clues to indicate where the second shot should be directed.
Unless something dramatic happens, I'll save my $10 green
fees for somewhere else.
