As the course designer, Id love to give it a fairer 4.5 but as I have to chose, will go 5 in comparison to the other 4/5 courses out there. 18 PDGA approved baskets with 18 unique tee pads Unique holes like no others in Australia at present On site pro shop 9 basket pitch and putt warm up course Accommodation and camping available on site Open all year roundCons
Tough to play when wet, but not impossible A little out from Brisbane, but still a day trip Still being built, but progress is positive so far
Unlike any other course you will ever play. Ever. You get the feeling there's more vertical than horizontal on some holes! This course will challenge you like you've never been challenged before, and there's always the feeling that no matter how well you play, you left a few shots out there... The hospitality from Nate and Carmen will be just the icing on the cake - you're likely to want to stay as it's a rather long round-trip from anywhere else. The first hole - across the horse paddock - will lull you into a false sense of familiarity with many other courses, but that's the last time you will think that!Cons
As Nate suggested, playing in the rain would be 'interesting' as there are a couple of steeply sloping granite faces that must be negotiated. These would be very slippery in the wet.
A most unique course set on a granite mountain I have seen the course evolve in the last 18 months and am confident that with some of the changes currently taking place it will soon achieve "5 star" status. Good baskets, plenty of elevation and well marked tee-pads.. This course makes you throw shots you didn't think you would need to. You work hard on every throw here and it is as mentally draining as it is physically. I hope to upgrade my rating to 5 stars soon.Cons
Not beginner friendly and if you aren't sure on foot then best you play when dry.
Make a camping weekend trip to come play as Nathan and Carmen are great hosts. A true challenge and experience for any player. Lots of elevation changes and truely unique 18 holes which highlight the natural beauty of the area. I guarantee you will leave and tell others about your time on the mountain.Cons
More of a hike then a casual stroll around a park so be prepared so you can have a good round. Some footings can be a bit restrictive to throw and the granite is super slippery when wet. Disc get quite beaten up on the rocks
