/site/_content/image/00135054-image.jpg

Naracoorte Golf Club is located close to the town centrein the Limestone Coast region approximately 336 kilometres south-east of Adelaide.

The course is set in parkland with 18 holes on slightly undulating country, set on a rise overlooking the surrounding Naracoorte flatlands. There are four Par 5 holes, four Par 3 holes and the remaining ten holes are Par 4.

The practice of cutting the greens right to the edge of some bunkers-as practised throughout the Melbourne Sandbelt-adds to the challenge of keeping your ball in position for the best approach to the flag.

Naracoorte Golf Club has joined the list of Australia’s TOP – 100 public access golf courses in Australia. The announcement was made on December the 18th in the January 2015 publication of Golf Australia.
