Challenge yourself on the 18 hole fully grassed course.
Built on less than 30 hectares (74 acres) the course although flat and without sand bunkers or water hazzards hosts many of its own challenges.
The front nine comprises two par 5’s with a number of borders on the golf course bringing out of bounds into play for errant shots. The back nine hosts all but one of the eight raised greens on the course, with the entire course graded at a 128 slope delivering a challenging course for even the most skilled golfers.
Generally the back nine is a little more difficult with two tough par 4’s (holes 11 and 12) to negotiate, along with the number 15 par 3, providing a challenging 2 meter raised small green along a narrow tee off channel. The margin for error is minimal with the left zone out of bounds and the right dense bush.
By modern standards Broome Golf Course is not long measuring just under 6000 metres. Despite this, the golf course challenges the very best players with many narrow fairways combined with dense bush increasing the degree of difficulty. The wildlife are a further highlight of the course with a host of wallabies, frilled neck lizards, monitor lizards and an array of birdlife.
The real story of the Broome Golf Club is, like all vintage golf and sporting clubs, about people. There are players and there are characters and there are stories, which bonds the community and entices the existing and new members.
