I'm travelling from Sydney to Canberra and would like to fit in a game on the way. Would anyone like to recommend a good course? Royal Canberra would be the obvious pick but I was thinking of something a bit more low key. Maybe the southern highlands or a town near Canberra.

Mt Broughton on the trip south is a good test.
Queanbeyan nice tight track, bit hilly.
In ACT, RC or Federal or Yowani?

Plenty of good tracks :)

Ended up playing Moss Vale and really enjoyed it. $45, teed off at 10am on a Sunday and only 2 players in front of me, no comp to play in unfortunately. Never had a bad lie on the fairway and the ball rolled truly on the greens. It will never be a top 20 course but it's a decent test with plenty of elevation changes and greens that demand accurate approach shots. $45 is probably the maximum for this course and I reckon it's worth the occasional trip from Sydney and Canberra and for anyone who is in the area.
I'll get around to the recommended courses on my next trip when I have more time.
