Short Game

To compliment the driving range, our separate short game area is one of the largest and best facilities ‘around the traps’. And best of all it is fully floodlit, so you can practice those chip shorts and 6 footers well into the night.

The short game area consists of: 

  • Chipping/ pitching green
  • Bunker green with 2 separate bunkers with various depths
  • Cost ~$10.00 with no time limit

All of their surrounds offer flat and sloping lies, so no matter what situation you are faced with on the course, you can replicate it here.



Our putting green is one of the largest in Australia, and one of the highest quality too.

Fully floodlit, featuring 18 holes with a mixture of uphill and downhill putts with varying amounts of break.

And best of all, it’s completely free of charge to use!
