Gold Creek CC- hole 9 approachGold Creek CC- hole 9 approach 

Gold Creek Country Club was designed by Bruce Devlin and opened for play in 1996.

The golf course was developed as a central part of a large residential development in suburban Canberra.

In the early days when I first played Gold Creek, many of the trees were mere saplings.

And as it pre dated many of the houses that were consequently built, the course had a relatively rural feel in places. 

These days the trees are mature and the course surrounds are wall to wall houses, so playing there is quite a different experience


A golfer moves around the course going under roads a number of times to access different section of the course.

Given the distance between some greens and the next tee, the course is perhaps best suited to carts rather than walking.

Right from the start Bruce Devlin specified pure couch fairways and bent grass greens and in the early days the playing surfaces were exceptional.

Soon after opening the club proudly hosted the Australian PGA Seniors championship (won by Lee Trevino)


As is often the case the developer moved on and since then the club has stuggled financially.

This is clearly reflected in the current maintenance levels of the course.

A recent positive is that during COVID more members have signed up.

Let's hope this trend continues as I would love to see the course back in top nick- the bones of the course as 'good as Gold'

Canberra is an ideal golf destination with five different courses to choose from, and so many things to see and do

Gold Creek CC is certainly an option for any such trip
