After hearing many good of reviews about the location, we decided to go for Mother’s Day. What a disappointment. Service was slow, ordered coffee that never came. Menu was different to what was served, when queried the excuse was the listeriosis outbreak. Such a pity...More

Although this is a golfing "must", the condition of the greens is very challenging. We enjoyed the experience but wouldn't hastily go back

We went to the golf course for breakfast one morning only to wait for 30 minutes before our orders were taken and even longer before the food came. Can't comment on the quality as we left before it came.

What a lovely and scenic course... the bush sounds and animals present is enough to get the adrenaline pumping... the course isn't fenced off from the rest of the park so dangerous animals might be encountered. Greens and course are fair, given it's a holiday...More
