Where Can I Practice?

I need to hone my skills - where can I do it here at NGC?

We have a great golf course at Nambour - but we do suffer from the lack of good practice areas. We used to practise hitting back down number 9 fairway, but with so many brutes here, it became dangerous for players on #9!  So that area was closed to practice. So where can we now practice?

  • Use the nets at the entrance way - probably the only place where you can practise your full swing with long irons or a driver.
    • There is a practice green behind the proshop - here you can practise from chips to bunker shots to full shots with you short irons (say from Sand Iron to 9 iron.) Good to practise hitting from unlevel lies too, because there is not much level land in this area.

    • The putting green adjacent to the first tee - obviously for putting, and those near-green approach chips.
    • There is another area beside the 17th tee, where you can hit mid irons across to the turf nursery to the left of the 17th green. Not being able to hit balls from this area when players are on the 17th hole is a drawback, but you can soon practice17work out the best time to practise here.

      When my golfing is letting me down, I compensate somewhat by being aware of and enjoying the natural beauty of our golf course environment.

      Anthony Everingham must too, as he has snapped the beauty of these grey gums changing their "outer clothing" to expose their beautiful, new and radiant bark. "Look on my works ye mighty and despair"

      It looks a lot cleaner in the “Everglades” between the 3rd and 4th fairways since a team of nearly a dozen volunteers cleaned it out during our latest “working bee”.

      Thanks to all those involved in all the working bees throughout the year – it really makes a difference.
