Review – Kyneton Golf Course

Address: Blackhill Road, Kyneton
Number of holes: 18
19th hole: Not sure if it’s for members only
Motorised carts: Yes but limited
Cost: 18 — $20 (weekend)


In June when we lasted played here the greens were very thin. It made stopping your approach shots very difficult & putts very fast. The fairways were in good condition, again a little thin in places but over all not too bad.

It is a tough course. The fairways are mostly pretty narrow with doglegs restricting the long hitters. It is a course that you have to play straight & accurate to get value for your shots.

There aren’t many bunkers on the front 9 but those that are there have some steep lips on them. The quality of the sand is first rate which makes playing out of them that much easier.

There a couple of holes that have water in play on them, the par 3 11th & the par 5 14th. Both have water in front of the tee which makes things interesting for your nervous golfer.

Kyneton is a very nice course, friendly staff, especially if your buy a new driver like Bill did. Also one of the few courses that sell beer in the pro shop. One of the things I like best about Kyneton is that it is nowhere near as busy as most course that are closer to the city. We hardly saw other group all day which is a nice change on a Saturday morning.
