Set amongst beautiful native and exotic trees, the course is in a peaceful setting, with changing colours and aspect with the four seasons. Autumn is a particularly beautiful time in Armidale with so many spectacular trees, but each season has its own special magic. Beautiful native birds are regularly seen.
The kikuyu grass fairways provide consistent lush cover while the bent grass greens have been designed to present a true and reliable putting surface. 25 sand bunkers protect the greens, adding interest and a little more challenge! The course is constantly maintained in excellent condition to ensure that members and visitors can appreciate and enjoy our challenging layout.
The par 72 course for men and 73 for women provides an excellent test of golf requiring accurate strokeplay and careful reading of greens for a successful round.
Head Professional Andrew Walkley has prepared this hole-by-hole guide to playing the Armidale Golf Club course:
It’s important for players visiting Armidale to factor in the height above sea level at which the city sits, almost 1,000 metres above sea level, making Armidale the highest city in Australia. The height means the ball travels further in good clear conditions, and I’ve have found I need one or two irons less in comparison with a coastal course.
