Roxby Downs Golf Club is an 18 Hole 5683m Par 72 Golf Course in Roxby Downs, South Australia, one of only few courses north-west of Adelaide with grass greens.
The Front Nine features 5 Par 4’s, 2 Par 5’s and 2 Par 3’s and the Back Nine features 3 Par 4’s, 3 Par 5’s and 3 Par 3’s.
In recent times, after its reconfiguration and new watering system, as well as tireless work from Greenkeepers and volunteers, the Roxby Downs course is starting to transform in to a desert paradise. The couch greens are healthier and faster than in previous times, fairways are greener with greater grass coverage and all tee blocks are grassed. If you’ve played the course before, the local rule of preferred lies on fairways (including use of a grass mat) is still in place, however grass coverage on fairways has improved greatly over the past year. The course becomes very challenging if you venture off the fairway, as the desert rough can be very unforgiving, and as such, the course has no sand bunkers, although in the dunes you may sometimes find yourself with a similar lie!
Some of the most recent works to the course include:
- Re-planting of the 18th Fairway
- Addition of Ladies tee-blocks on the 1st and 7th holes
- Creation of Practice Fairway and tee-block behind clubhouse next to the 14th hole.
- Landscaping of Fairway grass around greens
The course is open 7 days a week during daylight hours, as the clubhouse is not staffed, we please that visitors pay their green fees $20 Clubs are available to hire $10 in garden shed. Pay in the green box attached to the clubhouse behind the first tee.
