Course Layout & Location
Dorrigo is a naturally beautiful setting for a Golf Course, with incredible vistas of the plateau.
The bent grass greens are a treat to to putt on and the rich red basalt soils are free draining.
After heavy rain you can come and play when the sun comes out as casual water doesn't remain. A great place to play and a hidden gem!
1st & 10th holes: Dorrigo welcomes
golfers with a great opening downhill
par 4.The generous fairway is deceptive
as anything right of centre will increase
the danger of entry of water. The sloping
green can test your skill with a putter.
2nd & 11th holes:
Uphill par 3. Give
yourself plenty of
club as anything
short of the narrow
elevated green may
end up a third of the
way back to the tee.
3rd & 12th holes: The 3rd is a challenging
driving hole with a tree lined dog leg right. The 12th
is a straight forward short par 4, uphill all the way. Avoid being
left or long as the road is OOB.
4th & 13th holes: Straight forward par 3's but a tough up and down can be
on offer if you miss long of off to the side.
5th & 14th holes: Dorrigo's signature holes with the Bielsdown river meandering the length of the fairway. The green is situated on a narrow peninsular within a loop of the river. Again tough up and down either long or side.
6th & 15th holes: This is a generous par 3. Beware the river lurks left and long.
7th & 16th holes: The 7th is a monster par 3 for the men and deservingly the toughest ranked hole. The river bites deceptively into the left of the fairway.
8th & 17th holes: A good drive is needed here with the first 150m being over a loop in the river. A dogleg left leaves a long downhill 2nd shot into a tiered green. Avoid being aggressive as the river runs behind the green.
9th & 18th holes: The closing holes are uphill par 4's. A slight dogleg left requires a drive to the right side of the fairway to avoid the Camphor Laurel tree protecting the corner. A long narrow green makes a tough up and down if you miss to the right.
