Indooroopilly Golf Club dates from 1925 when Dan Soutar designed a course on what is now the site of the St Lucia Links.
The club opted to move to it's current site in 1964, leaving the St Lucia site as a public access course.
The new site originally began with 18 holes designed by Al Howard, but in more recent times Ross Watson has been employed in an ongoing role to develop the site to it's full potential. Watson has had a significant impact, and the site now has 36 holes- four loops of nine holes. The Red and Gold nines comprise the championship course at Indooroopilly- the blue and green nines are a little shorter, but also quality golf- making Indooroopilly a golf destination in it's own right...
The varied vegetation on the site forms a beautiful backdrop to the course, and the routing uses the natural terrain - lakes, valleys, and elevation change to advantage, without ever seeming forced.
Notable holes include:
Red- hole 7: a strong par 4 through the valley with water threatening down the right side..
Red- hole 8: a pretty par 3 with water left...
Red- hole 9: a winding par 5 down the valley with water to carry at every turn
All of the par 3's were a little daunting!
Every Travelling Golfer should aspire to play Indooroopilly- it's a quality course and is just a nice place to play the game..
