PROPOSED NEW SHORTER, EASIER COURSE

The Committee have designated a new set of tee blocks labelled the “Orange Course” with the primary objective of having a shorter, easier course available for limited use. The course would hopefully make it easier for learner golfers and young juniors to transition to normal competition play and also provide an attractive alternative to enable older players to prolong their enjoyable golfing careers.

It is proposed to start a separate new competition, possibly after the normal Friday comp, teeing off between 10:30 and 12 noon for anyone interested in utilising the Orange course. The Orange course may also be available for limited social golf.

Players may have noticed new tee blocks being formed using the greens corings near the bridge on the 15th and on the left of the 9th fairway. These are part of the Orange course. Other features include using 12a and 12b holes replacing the 8th hole. Most of the other tees use the existing ladies “Pink” tees, excepting the 1st, 10th and 18th. On the 1st ,the Orange tee will be on the old spare tee block on the left just past the start of the fairway. The 10th Orange tee will be on the social tee just past the ropes and the 18th will be the normal ladies red tee par 5.

The Orange course will use the same tee blocks for both Men and Ladies. We have already had Golf NSW rate the Orange course. The Men’s’ rating is par 72, scratch 66 and slope 108. The Ladies rating is par 72, scratch 71 and slope 117. Following is the full details of the Orange course.
