  • Par : 4

A slight dog-leg to the left with fairway bunkers 200m from the tee guarding the left hand side of the fairway. The green is long and slopes from back to front.

  • Yards : 356
  • Stroke Index : 9
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 330
  • Yards : 363

NOTE
This sharp dog-leg left requires accurate placement of the tee shot to a narrow fairway. A short iron approach will then be required to a well bunkered green.

  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 383
  • Yards : 421
  • Stroke Index : 8

Public
  • Par : 4

  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 175
  • Yards : 192
  • Stroke Index : 7

  • Yards : 148
  • Stroke Index : 17
Public
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 145
  • Yards : 159

NOTE
The first of the short but still demanding par 3's. From the back tee, a long iron or fairway wood is needed to navigate the water carry. The area to the right of the green is known to members as 'Pensioners Corner'.

Hole 5 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 413
  • Yards : 454
  • Stroke Index : 2

  • Yards : 402
  • Stroke Index : 1
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 397
  • Yards : 436

NOTE
Rated number 2 for difficulty, this hole requires a well hit drive positioned slightly left of center fairway and then another long iron or fairway wood to reach this green which slopes severely from back to front.

Hole 6 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 485
  • Yards : 533
  • Stroke Index : 14

  • Metres : 443
  • Yards : 487
  • Stroke Index : 4
Public
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 473
  • Yards : 520

NOTE
This double dog-leg par 5 can offer some relief depending on wind direction. The left side of the fairway from the tee, is guarded by a large sand feature, while further down the fairway, lies a water hazard. Another sand feature is positioned just short of the green to catch miss-timed long approaches.

Hole 7 - Goonawarra Golf Course

  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 156
  • Yards : 171
  • Stroke Index : 17

  • Yards : 144
  • Stroke Index : 15
Public
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 140
  • Yards : 154

NOTE
Recently upgraded, the shortest of the four par 3's offers a challenging tee shot when the pin is tucked left over the bunkers. The right hand side is the safe tee shot however stray to far right and your up a hill without a paddle.

Hole 8 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 529
  • Yards : 581
  • Stroke Index : 4
Ladies
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 410
  • Yards : 451
  • Stroke Index : 5
Public
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 480
  • Yards : 528

NOTE
A straight par 5 with bunkers within 100m of the green. The undulating green is well bunkered and the length provides a solid test for all golfers

Hole 9 - Goonawarra Golf Course

  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 348
  • Yards : 381
  • Stroke Index : 17/31
  • Match Index : 16

  • Yards : 313
  • Stroke Index : 14/32
  • Match Index : 13
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 300
  • Yards : 328

NOTE
This dog-leg left par 4 requires good placement of the tee shot so a straight approach to the green can be achieved. Players should leave their approach shots short of the flag, leaving an uphill putt on this green.

Hole 10 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 160
  • Yards : 176
  • Stroke Index : 9
Ladies
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 111
  • Yards : 122
  • Stroke Index : 18
Public
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 145
  • Yards : 159

NOTE
The back nine starts with a par 3 with water on the right and bunkers right and left of the putting surface. A 3 here is a good way to start the inward nine.

Hole 11 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 349
  • Yards : 383
  • Stroke Index : 9
Ladies
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 305
  • Yards : 335
  • Stroke Index : 10
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 305
  • Yards : 335

NOTE
More water to carry on this hole for the brave at heart. Otherwise, its a drive and short iron to a green bunkered on both sides.

Hole 12 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 493
  • Yards : 542
  • Stroke Index : 5
Ladies
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 440
  • Yards : 484
  • Stroke Index : 3
Public
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 460
  • Yards : 506

NOTE
One of the best par 5's in Australia. With the township of Sunbury visible on your left, this 3 shot par 5 has everything, including a well mounded undulating green.

Hole 13 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 300
  • Yards : 328
  • Stroke Index : 13
Ladies
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 251
  • Yards : 276
  • Stroke Index : 13
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 285
  • Yards : 313

NOTE
Another very scenic hole and one that can destroy a scorecard if the drive is too far left or right of centre. Players must avoid leaving themselves long putts here as the green is treacherous to putt on.

Hole 14 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 358
  • Yards : 393
  • Stroke Index : 11
Ladies
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 297
  • Yards : 326
  • Stroke Index : 12
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 309
  • Yards : 335

NOTE
A slightly blind tee shot uphill to a deceptively difficult green to land on. A sleeper of a hole that appears an easy target.

Hole 15 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 452
  • Yards : 497
  • Stroke Index : 18
Ladies
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 413
  • Yards : 452
  • Stroke Index : 6
Public
  • Par : 5
  • Metres : 429
  • Yards : 471

NOTE
The last of the par 5's and a good eagle chance for long hitters. A new bunker complex surrounding the green makes this a challenging approach shot.

Hole 16 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 166
  • Yards : 182
  • Stroke Index : 12
Ladies
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 117
  • Yards : 128
  • Stroke Index : 16
Public
  • Par : 3
  • Metres : 119
  • Yards : 130

NOTE
Goonawarra's signature hole has four tee locations to choose from and a huge lake to hit over. The 'Island' tee affords one of the great tee shots in the land.

Hole 17 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 349
  • Yards : 383
  • Stroke Index : 16
Ladies
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 319
  • Yards : 350
  • Stroke Index : 8
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 326
  • Yards : 358

NOTE
With two holes to play, the second last is a mid length dog-leg left par 4 with fairway bunkers on the corner of the dog-leg. The second shot is uphill to a relatively flat green.

Hole 18 - Goonawarra Golf Course

Mens
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 424
  • Yards : 466
  • Stroke Index : 1
Ladies
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 360
  • Yards : 396
  • Stroke Index : 2
Public
  • Par : 4
  • Metres : 373
  • Yards : 410

NOTE
The last hole at Goonawarra is renowned as being one of the toughest on the course. At 424m there aren't many par 4's around longer than this one. Into a southerly wind, most players will be tested.
