Our Course

Our course has been specifically designed for the enjoyment of golf. With generous landing areas, well-designed greens and weatherproof base, the course is well equipped to handle both intimate and large playing groups.

Gardiners Run was relocated to Victoria Road in 2014, after we noticed the housing developments surrounding Kingswood Drive had begun to limit golfing facilities and experiences. The new course has been designed to increase the challenges and overall experience for golfers.

Gardiners Run takes pride in providing a high-quality standard of the upkeep of the grounds. We appreciate members and guests taking the same pride.

The Clubhouse

The clubhouse is a relaxed environment where you can wind down and chat in comfort after you finishing up on the course. You can relax indoors or outdoors on the shaded deck area that overlooks the large pond and 18th hole.

The clubhouse has a fully licensed bar and kitchen [open throughout the day] that offers barista made beverages, hot food and various snacks.

Our kitchen is open for lunch Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday – Sunday, 12pm to 2pm.

We’re open to the public. For larger bookings or function availability, please call us to check availability.

Course Care

As players we can all help show the course in its best light by adhering to simple guidelines during play.  Damage to the course can be barely noticeable and assists in ensuring you and your fellow golfers enjoy their round by completing the following:

  • Carrying and using a sand bucket at all times
  • Repairing plug marks on the greens
  • Enter and leave bunkers at their lowest access point
  • Raking out all footprints in bunker
  • Obeying directional signs, lines and hoops
  • Do not drop flagstick on the putting green as it will cause damage
  • When removing a ball players are requested not to use the head of the putter

Repairing Ball Marks

Use a specifically designed pitch mark repairer

  1. Commence at the back of the ball mark
  2. Gently push the turf inward
  3. Continue around sides
  4. Complete around the entire mark
  5. Tap down with putter to smooth surface

Bunker Care

Bunkers are deemed hazards on a golf course but all players have an expectation that they will receive a fair lie to be able to play a shot from.  Therefore, players are requested to rake all bunkers in a manner that they would expect to see when their ball first stops in them.  Staff spend many hours preparing the course for the enjoyment of golfers and players are requested to think of others.  Guidelines for bunker care are as follows:
