Millicent Golf Club: You won't get better value golf or a more attractive and quieter woodland course than here at Millicent Golf Club - this is one of the lesser known gems of Australian golf - wonderfully sculpted from a natural forest of eucalyptus and many other tree varieties - as natural and quiet as any woodland course in Australia - its out-of-town and off-the-beaten track location, combined with a lack of serious financing, does translate into less than perfect maintenance standards, but don't let that deter you for one minute - if you accept an occasionally rustic look, then no course will deliver more for such a modest green fee - the strength of the layout rests on its skilfully crafted straightaway and doglegging holes, which weave their way through the forest in two nine hole loops - pleasantly undulating terrain gives excellent character to the tree-lined holes - the good-width, undulating fairways, many played to from elevated teeing positions, lead you toward small, round, subtly sloping greens; greens that the great Harry Colt would be proud of - a lack of water hazards and lightish bunkering reduces the normal array of challenges one might expect to face - dazzling red/blue parrots, kookaburra's and many other bird varieties provide a wonderful chorus, further enhancing this sublimely natural environment - if a rich benefactor could introduce improved bunkering and up the maintenance resources, Millicent would rocket into Australia's Top 10 courses - as it is, the dedicated members do a great job in ensuring a welcoming and rewarding golfing experience.
