The undulating 114m 6th hole is only short but always proves a great test for all golfers.
Where the welcome is always warm
Iluka is a coastal village at the mouth of the Clarence River on the Far North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
By car Iluka is a 17km drive through rainforest from the Pacific Highway and less than 80km north of Grafton.
To the north, the Gold Coast is just two hours away, Byron Bay a 90-minute drive and Ballina an hour away.
And you probably know, or would have heard about, our trendier 'cousin' Yamba. But this is all about a little gem called Iluka and the pace of life here is much slower than on the other side of the river.
Iluka doesn't have the type of development that so many want to escape from -- you won't find any fast food franchise outlets or high-rise buildings here.
This fact makes it a truly rewarding experience for those craving the 'good life' that provides a great atmosphere of golf, fishing and lazy days on the beach. And there's more than a fair chance you and your partner won't have to share any of these experiences with too many other locals or visitors.
Take the challenge
The Iluka Village, which is surrounded by national park, the river and the Pacific Ocean, boasts a challenging nine-hole 'all-weather' golf course* with two sets of tees for 18-hole competitions.
The fairways are well maintained and manicured and lead into a array of greens which are always roll true and are a delight to putt on.
The course also offers golfers that do not like crowds the very rare experience of playing a round and having the fairways to themselves.
There are many more reasons to stay 'n' play in Iluka and we're only 2 hour's drive south of the Gold Coast.
* Although Iluka is known as a nine-hole course, it sets up for a challenging 18 holes of golf all maintained daily by our greens keepers and volunteers.
Enjoy a free game of pool, a flutter on the pokies, Keno or a 'cool one' when visiting the Iluka Golf Club. The clubhouse is open seven days a week. There are raffles and a members' badge draw every Friday night and watch the Footy on Sunday's and ENJOY a couple of cold scooners.
The Chinese and Thai Restaurant provides for a generously, tasty lunch or dinner (dine in or takeaway) whilst the club also runs a courtesy bus and will collect visitors from the Woombah, Woody Head camping ground and surrounding caravan parks, holiday units and homes in Iluka, phone 6646 6408 for more details.
