The North Course is ideal for new golfers or those wanting a quick round.
A short, yet challenging, golf course – North Course (Par 69) is only a short walk from the city in the Adelaide parklands.
When you visit, you'll play along Kikuyu fairways and Santa Ana Couch tees, which give you a smooth playing surface all year round. The tree-lined course gives off that perfect 'back to nature feel'. And with Santa Ana Couch greens, you'll get a reliable and true putting surface all four seasons. Plus, the low height of the rough makes it easy to find a wayward ball, letting you play your round faster.
Measuring in at 4,534 metres, the North Course will test your accuracy and ball control, while giving you a few good chances to make par and birdies – and the best possible chance at a new PB.
The North Course regularly hosts Golf SA Junior events, including the yearly Secondary Schools Championship.
Open 7 days a week, we are a public golf course that welcomes all players. Dress code is relaxed, but neat and tidy with closed-toed shoes is a must.

Tips For Each Hole
A short opening Par 4 which moves slightly from left to right on the tee shot.

The hardest hole on the course.
With out of bounds on the left for the full length of the hole, both distance and accuracy is required to a make a par here.
After a good tee shot, you are still faced with a long second shot to the small, undulated green.

The 3rd hole is a reachable Par 4 for many.
In order to do this, you need to carry the tee shot over the Gum tree in the middle of the fairway before finding the medium sized slightly raised green.
The conservative line is down the right hand side of the fairway which leaves a short pitch into the green.

128 metres. Index 8
The second hardest hole on the course rounds out the front 9.
A medium length uphill Par 4, this hole plays a lot longer than its yardage might suggest.
A drive down the right hand side opens up the green and whilst this maybe the longer line in it is certainly easier than the approaching from left which brings several mature trees into play.
342 metres. Index 2
A downhill Par 4, the fairway of the 10th slopes to the right hand side, facing players to keep their tee shot to the high side.
A large gum tree guards the green on the right hand side, while an approach shot from the left is straight forward.

409 metres. Index 3

116 metres. Index 17
A picturesque downhill Par 4.
Drives will roll for a good distance if they find the fairway. A large green is well guarded short right and to the left forcing players to be precise on not only direction but also club choice.
A good hole where birdie is just as easy as double bogey.
316 metres. Index 10
A short walk takes players to the Par 4, 15th hole.
Out of bounds to the right, and heavily wooded rough to the left, make this hole play a lot harder than its yardage would have you believe.
Tee short and land in the middle of the fairway, where it tends to kick down to the right. This opens the green for the second shot. As it's a small green, it requires pin point accuracy for the approach shot.
247 metres, Index 16
The 16th is a straight away, uphill Par 4 with a relatively wide fairway.
It’s time to open up the shoulders for one last blast with the driver.
Once on the fairway, the approach shot needs to find the putting surface to give any chance of a late round birdie.
295 metres. Index 4
This Par 4 is genuine two shot hole.
The tee shot must be played with a mid or long iron to a narrow landing area at the base of the hill and the apex of the left hand dogleg. Once you have negotiated this part of the hole, it’s a short iron straight uphill where only the top of the flagstick is normal visible.
A gentle undulating green provides yet more of a challenge to complete the hole.
260 metres. Index 6
