Kooyonga Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1922

Kooyonga Golf Club: Located just north of Adelaide Airport, but relatively undisturbed by the air traffic (which doesn't land or take-off directly overhead) - this excellently maintained and attractive Adelaide sandbelt course is laid out on nicely undulating terrain - pleasant though never overly dense rows of trees and areas of fairly penal, long grass separate the rolling fairways - a few tightish drives are mixed in with others of a more forgiving nature - excellent quality bunkering poses a fairway and greenside threat, but water hazards are not something you'll need to worry too much about here - the greens are relatively small and firm, but also considerably undulating, with slick run-off areas where bunkering is not present - the layout still follows the original Cargie Rymill routing, with an excellent variety of doglegging and straightaway holes - housing may surround the outer perimeter of this plot, but is rarely in view or in-range - the two gently doglegging opening par-5 holes should ease any rustiness in your swing, just in time to take on the ferociously bunkered par-3 3rd - as on many holes, the bunkers are cut right up to the very edge of the putting surface - some pleasant views and nicely elevated tee-boxes are to be found at the course's higher elevations - a handsomely crafted, always undulating layout, full of character and golfing challenges - large, stylish, modern clubhouse.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
