    Default SA 'heaps good' Course thread

    Hey all thought we could start a thread on SA courses, hopefully we can use this thread to discuss favourite courses and holes in SA as well as updating on course condition. If you are a member anywhere let us know that too

    Also has anyone played Mt Osmond? Whats the course like and do they have good practice facilities etc. Might be moving house shortly and this could be the closest course to me... I want to get a membership once I know where I will be living.

    Only played 2 courses in SA - Clare and Tanunda. Clare was ok for a small country town, and the couple of holes up the hill then the par 3 back down were pretty interesting.

    I enjoyed Tanunda - I read somewhere that they have held tournaments there?

    Tanunda is nice. I heard that also, not sure what tourneys they have held tho.

    Yet to play Clare but I have seen the course and it gets good raps from a few mates of mine..

    Played Tanunda a few years back, its a good track. They played a Von Nida tour event there a few years back.

    Both Grange courses I rate highly, although I have not played the West since it has been changed

    Royal Adelaide would have to be my favorite, love the place

    Being a member at Tea Tree Gully I have played that hundreds of times, its a good course, and considering the traffic its always in good condition.

    Flagstaff Hill is good,

    On my list to play are - Kooyonga, Glenelg, Lady Bay

    My mate had just taken over as the Pro at Renmark GC, so I will be playing that shortly too

    I live just up the road from TTG, would like to have joined, but consider it out of my price range.

    Played Kooyonga at an Ambrose day 2 years ago and it is a pretty sweet course..... was a very windy day so plenty of balls lost tht day lol, plus the drinks girls were nice though lol

    I wasnt a huge fan of Flagstaff hill, didnt like these fairways that slope off from right to left etc. u hit a beautiful drive, and get to ur ball to find it has rolled sideways off the fairway and into the rough or worse.... Dunno if this has been fixed at all...

    Love that par 3 140m hole over the damn though.... one of the best par 3's I have played anywhere...

    Played Edithburgh sometime back, and whilst it isnt much of a course it is a true test of golf though.... the weather can be sooo severe down there that it can make play extremely difficuly. Another highlight is the 2 holes over the road from the rest of the course that are along the coast.... awesome views but extremely exposed lol. The par 3 over the water/cliffs is a gorgeous hole... ill post some pics up from my Edithburgh trip

    I live at Greenwith so its only down the road. I've gone back to social membership until I have the time to play every weekend.

    If you want a round there let me know, I might even be able to organise the next Ozgolf day there

    TTG has a few fairways that punish a good shot, the first you have to hit it in the right rough and hope it finds it way down to the fairway. The 10th is on a small ridge as well so most tee shots run off a little

    It has gotten a little pricey due to member numbers dropping, I think this years subs were around $1700

    Flaggy is OK, I played it on a corportate ambrose day and a guy holed out on that par 3

    Nuriootpa is a good track, I really enjoyed it up there

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks Deano for putting up our link in here.

    We are Matt and Tony and we have created www.sagolfadventure.com so that we can share our experiences of the courses in South Australia with everyone else. We are aiming to play every course in the state in the next couple of years.

    So check out the site and become a member so you can take part in the journey and discussions in our forums.

    Hope to hear from you all soon.

    Also, Id have to agree with some other comments too about Lady Bay, i loved the course. So much so in fact that my wife and i have bought some land down there and are currently building a house. I cant wait to get down there.

    Never played there mate, bit of a drive from Adelaide. Would be interested to play there if the chance arose. How would you describe it?

    Hey Fellas,

    I'm a member at Riverside GC.
    Have recently played Royal Adel for our work golf day. Was a very windy day which made it bloody tuff.
    This years corporate day is at Kooyanga, so looking forward to that.
    Have played the likes of the Pat, Lady Bay, McCracken, Mt Compass, Nth Adel.

    Welcome Toddy,

    I was a junior member at Riverside many moons ago. How's the place looking these days? I thought it was a really nice course when I was there.

    Royal Adelaide would be a treat.. You should come to the next SA Ozgolf day. 6 of us played a meet and greet game on Sunday so it would be good to see more of us out there.

    Post a thread in the Welcome Forum and tell us a bit about yourself, or just do it here..

    cheers mate, I am yet to play Flaggy, Lofty or Osmond but I agree Blackwood is a very nice course. Yearly rates are reasonable for a quality private course. Apparently with Blackwood you also get 6 rounds per year at Riverside/TTGully and a couple other local affiliated courses so its actually really good value and variety..

    Im a 9 hole member at Flaggy, I think course wise it is similar to Blackwood perhaps more sloping fairways. But I love Blackwood for the serenity. It is more like a country course.
    I havnt played Mt Osmond for a fair while but it would be at the bottom of my list, just above the public courses.
