Dalby's 18 hole course features Bermuda 328 greens and Kikuyu fairways.
Par is 72 with the Men’s ACR set at 68 and the ladies’ AWCR set at 71. Total lengths are 5 900m for the men and 5 340m for ladies. Dalby Golf Club employs a full time green keeper and other casual grounds staff and is well watered through access to effluent water supplies.
Like many country courses bunkering is minimal, however steep surrounds covered with lush kikuyu demand accurate approach shots. All greens feature subtle breaks designed to test golfers of all abilities.
Fairways are generous and well grassed. Straight tee shots are rewarded on this course, however a stray shot will almost certainly mean trouble as the fairways are bordered by towering gums.
No 2. Par 4 339m. This is a tight driving hole which features a sharp dog leg right some 200m from the tee. Strong players can challenge the hole by flying the corner. This is a risk reward option as OOB and a hazard lie in wait along the right side of the fairway.
No. 3. Par 3 142m. A picturesque hole and one which demands precision from the tee. This hole is protected by a bunker front left and huge gums to the right. There is a severe slope from the front of the green towards the creek. OOB behind the hole and thick bush to the right make this an extremely difficult Par 3.
No. 4. Par 4. 287m. A great hole to attack. A strong drive through the narrow chute of trees over Myall Creek, will leave a short pitch to the green, and a great chance of birdie. Take care though, as OOB runs the entire length of this hole and the sloping fairway pitches an off centre drive towards the fence. Approach shots over the back or to the right, spell trouble.
Hole 7. Par 5. 431m. The shortest Par 5 on the course and a definite birdie chance. Many players attack this green with their second shot. Plenty of timber along the fairway and a difficult green to read. A great chance to score well.
Hole 9. Par 4. 365m. A great finishing hole to the front nine. This hole angles slightly left to right and requires an accurate tee shot. A small gully transverses the fairway. The green is two tiered and great care is required when considering the pace of each putt.
Hole 10. Par 5. 494m. A long sweeping dogleg left to right to start the back nine. Left of centre is best as trees can restrict shots too close to the right. A small pot bunker protects an elevated green sloping gently form back to front. OOB on the right.
No. 13. Par 4. 410m. Indexed number 1 and with good reason. This is a long hole requiring a good drive and a long iron to a narrow green. Accuracy and length a must here to score par.
No.14. Par 3. 122m. Another Par 3 which requires careful choice of club off the tee. This elevated green slopes markedly from back to front making putting difficult. Steep run offs can pitch an errant tee shot OOB.
No.17. Par 5. 492m. Another good test. This hole doglegs to the left and features an ‘internal’ OOB, all down the left side to the 100m marker. Any ball straying left of the tree line requires a reload. The small green is well guarded by trees and is difficult to read. Take care!
No.18. Par 3. 185m. A great finishing hole. This green is guarded by OOB to the left and the rear. This large green is protected by grass bunkering and subtle slopes which make putting difficult. Rated at Index 3 for good reason.
