Although located a mere 20-minute drive from Canberra city centre, the course at Queanbeyan Golf Club is actually located in New South Wales, just outside the boundary line of the Australian Capital Territory.
The course is laid out on the east bank of the Queanbeyan River, with the final three holes routed along the water’s edge. Holes 1-9 occupy the north part of the property, separated from the others by a small residential area.
Highlight holes include the short par four 5th, severely veering right to the green; the long par four 14th, rated the toughest hole on the back nine; and the 355-metre 18th, where anything left off the tee is wet before the fairway then swings right towards the home green.
A relatively straightforward country town members course, with mature trees in a single line between mostly back and forth adjacent fairways. Average conditioning, except for very good greens. Some new revetted bunkering and tees were replaced due to the course hosting the NSW Womens Open a few years ago. (not really sure why in terms of the golf: it is pretty obvious why however, as Queanbeyan is the largest town in the politcal seat of the NSW deputy Premier and the golf club was the recipient of some good old fashioned pork barrelling!) A couple of more interesting dogleg holes, but mostly it's pretty straight and mediocre.
The little clubhouse has a nice bistro with decent sized and good value meals.
As the course is only about three Km from the ACT, if this course was ranked with that region it would probably sit about seventh of the ten in the area.
