Commonwealth GC is a superb test of golf for all standards of player. It's a strongly tree lined course with traditional sandbelt type bunkering surrounding the greens, the course has some water on it at the par 4 3rd with the dam located on the right hand side and the 16th which is positioned on the left side of the fairway and is unusual for it's neighbouring courses down these parts.
The short Par 4 first is excellent with it's risk reward as well as it's closing hole the 18th with it's wonderful green setting around the clubhouse.
It can be tight off the tee here, but whether the club decides to embark on a tree removal program then it will remain this way.
The course routing is fairly well up and back, north south facing with not one hole running directly east or west.
The variety in length of holes was excellent as well, not all the same length can kill course makeup, some dogleg holes here make for testing tee shots.
