Blayney Golf Course

Travelling in unfamiliar territory opens the opportunity to explore new golf courses and uncover hidden gems.

Blayney Golf Course is a 9 hole course in the Central West of NSW 180 kilometres from Sydney. It is 32 kms west of Bathurst and about 34 kms south and east of Orange. Maintained by volunteers the course uses the natural terrain to offer an interesting challenge. Two short par 3’s are guarded by trees and a creek, while other holes have used the trees and slope to lift the degree of difficulty of the shorter par 5 and par 4 holes.

A well placed tee shot is needed on most holes, and in the early days of summer even a well directed drive can roll down the hill into the trees. The ability to shape the ball from tight lies pays dividends on the score card.

The greens held well and were well grassed. As we played the course on a Tuesday the greens were a little slow, but the ball rolled truly.

So…if you are travelling between Orange and Cowra take a detour to Blayney and enjoy a quick nine hole on a delightful country course.
