Played it just a couple of months ago (around May) .... very nice course, and it was in good nick at the time.

 

I'd go out on a limb and say it's far and away, the best golf course within 500 kms of Alice Springs.

 

I've played it a few times now over the last 20 years, and loved it each and every time.

 

Finished my latest round there with a very nice eagle on the par 4, 18th so very happy memories ……. 

 

A must play if you're in the area I reckon …..  ;)

Cracking course and stunning vistas with the Mac Ranges in the background. I spend a bit of time up around Alice and always look for the opportunity to play it.

Maybe one for PuttOvr.

 

I'm in Alice for a conference the week before Easter. Wondering if there is an opportunity to join in with a local comp there mid week.

My old stomping ground.

 

Played many a round there in the junior years. Had the opportunity to play it on our Big Lap in 2017 and it was a I remembered it. Complete with the massive Greg Norman poster in the change rooms.

 

One of the great courses in Australia if you ask me.

Thanks Smergen
Thats a very nice rap for our course, and yep I recon the big Photo of Greg Norman is pretty awesome also.
We have a local lad ( Jake Hughes ) here playing of +4 just won the NT Amateur back to back and made it to the last day of the Australian Amateur this year.

What are the strokes gained puttingovr stats like for his group ?

Nah but seriously he’s a good young bloke, played 9 with him a few weeks ago. A win for him there would be great.

Yer we recon Jake is awesome here in the Alice 

I played in a group of 4 today we putted over my marker 4 times 
On the 17th one of our group did not have a puttovr and moved his marker the old style 
we all looked at each other and laughed.
