The Grange Golf Club
The Grange's Championship course plays at 6,270m and offers a fantastic experience. The picturesque Mullet Creek winds its way throughout the course coming into play on 11 holes, mostly on the back 9, which creates a course of two contrasting nines. The creek is at its most punishing on the back nine.
The outward half is flat and easy walking, with the pick being the two par 3s, the 4th at 164m and 7th at 154m.
The gently undulating and more heavily tree-lined back nine presents the most memorable holes on the course. In particular, the stretch from the par 4 12th to the short par 4 15th is superb. The land these holes have been laid out over rolls and dips far more than any of the earlier holes, which makes them more exciting.
While the longest par 5, the 529m 13th, requires straight hitting so does the shortest, the par 3 152m 18th. This hole is considered by most to be the club's signature hole and for good reason. Standing on the tee, there is only one thing between you the front edge of the green - the cool, flowing waters of Mullet Creek. There is a short fairway to the left of the water and in front of the putting surface, which is heavily bunkered. This hole is easily affected by wind and anything from a 3-iron to a wedge could be used to find the small, sloping green.
The club house offers a modern contemporary feel with a fully stocked bar, affordable brassiere dining that is open seven days for lunch and Friday for dinner, a barbecue area and the award-winning 2 venues at The Grange, for events.
Enjoy beverages, lunch, dinner or event facilities whilst overlooking the 10th fairway and beyond to the beautiful escarpment.
Or if you require golf apparel, the newly refitted Pro Shop can assist with a range of Foot Joy shoes, clothing for men and ladies, plus an extensive range of Titliest and Cobra golf clubs.
