The Australian Capital Territory, or ACT as it’s more commonly called, is an enclave of less than a thousand square miles that lies within the state of New South Wales in the south east of Australia. The state capital Canberra is also the seat of government for the nation and it celebrated the centenary of its foundation in 2013.
There are ten clubs in ACT affiliated to the 24-club ACT Monaro District Golf Association which in turn is one of twenty Men’s Country Districts in membership of Golf NSW. Whilst the John Harris-designed Royal Canberra (Westbourne) layout stands head and shoulders above all the other courses in ACT, that’s not to say the others should be easily dismissed.
For instance, the old Federal course at Red Hill (dating back to 1933) has many admirers, as do a couple of mid-1990s designs at Gungahlin Lakes and Gold Creek.
