    Some of the holes there should not be repeated anywhere.

    Good read mate. Planning to do a golf trip between Mackay and Townsville, so be interested to see what courses we should be playing.

    Staying in Airlie so a couple of rounds, one at Proserpine and one at the new 9 Hole Par3 - Whitsunday Greens.
    Played in the Thursday comp at Proserpine with three locals, so got a bit of inside knowledge of the course. Proserpine is a 18 hole layout, very much a flat course with tree lined fairways for the best part with a bit a sugar cane thrown in on a couple of holes, there are also several ponds and creeks throughout the course some hidden from the tee (2nd), in general the fairways are pretty generous. Some good long Par 4's that play to there length due to the soft and thick fairways. It was good to play with the locals, as when you finish the 7th, the 8th is across two fairways in the middle of the back nine! The greens were pretty ordinary, quite bumpy and slow. The locals told me due to flooding the course gets they have trouble getting the greens consistent. A good course that plays harder then the rating it is given.

    Proserpine GC Par 71 Scratch 69 Slope 113 5779m. Green Fee $35, Comp $18



    Whitsunday Green is a brand new 9 hole par 3 layout, designed by Graham Papworth and part of a over 55's village, situated just as you come into Airlie Beach on the left.
    The holes range from 45m up to 83m, where you tee off designated mats. A few ponds and bunkers to hit over along with a couple of creeks as well make the holes a visual challenge. The greens held well but were a bit bumpy and slow but I guess will settle down with time (course only opened a week ago) and have a bit of undulation.
    Depending on your wedge ability, only two or three clubs are needed. Good compact par 3 course that you can take the kids (take a few balls) or have a laugh with a few mates.
    There is also a driving range in the complex where your go an unleash later on.

    Whitsunday Green Par 27 571m. $10 (opening deal) there after $15

    I'd call that second one a Pitch n Putt course, rather than par 3. There is one of those at Corinda with 28 holes.

    Yea its pretty talked up, but yes a pitch n putt in reality. I did see a player hit hit a hybrid on a 45m hole and then said I was thinking about bringing my driver....
