Review – Bundoora Golf Course

Address: Bundoora Park, Plenty Road, Bundoora
Number of holes: 18
Carts available: Yes
19th Hole: No


A nice public course. Very straight & flat with tree lined fair ways. Bird life in abundance with cockatoos & Rosellas flying around through out the 18 holes.

The front nine is very straight with with just the 2 holes with doglegs. The 7th is a long par 5 with a dogleg approximately 150 meters from the front of the green, & the 9th is medium length par 4 with a small dogleg approximately 90 metres from the front of the green.

If you are a straight & long hitter there are a couple of holes that will make your eyes light up. The 3rd is a par 5 with a crest of a hill about 220 meters from the tee. A nice drive will see you looking down the hill to the green about 200 metres away, a good 3 wood & you can be on for 2. The other is the short par 4 6th. At 245 meters the green is drivable when the tees are playing forward. With a wide & open fairway it certainly allows you to open the shoulders & give it crack.

The back nine is more of a challenge with the majority of holes having a dogleg . Most of the doglegs are to the right so the best position to play from is left of centre of the fairway.

The two standout holes on the back nine would be the par 3 10th & the par 5 18th.

The par 3 10th is not a difficulty hole, at 170 metres it’s not a long par 3 but it could either build or break your confidence going into the back nine. With the lake as a back drop it’s a pleasant looking hole.

The par 5 18th is hard way to come home especially if your day hasn’t been the best. With a dogleg right at about the 280 meter mark you may not be able see the green for your second shot. The green is well guarded at the front right corner with a deep bunker. Best to approach the left side of the green & take the bunker out of play.

Not a bad course to play, but in the summer the fairways become a bit dry & in the winter the fairways can become a little boggy. Spring & Autumn are the optimal times to play this course but it is playable all year round.
