The Stanley Golf Club

The Course


Established in 1909 in the picturesque seaside town of Stanley.
Par 66, Golf Australia rating of 100.
Challenging 9 hole course with tree and coastal grass lined fairways, bunker and sand dam.
Typical UK links style course with well-maintained fairways and greens.
The opening par 5 hole sets you up to keep it straight as on the right it’s out of bounds into farming pasture.
The remainder of the course consists of four par 4’s and four par 3’s each with its own name character.
Thereafter don’t be lulled into a false sense of security as you must keep your concentration to move the ball left and right to avoid the thick coastal grass edges known locally as marram grass. The maritime winds cause havoc from time to time.
Members can check their handicaps on the Golf Australia Site.

The First Fairway

Fauna


Ever watchful is the guardian of the town a massive volcanic plug known as The Nut towering over you.

You will spot many varieties of cockatoo including yellow-tailed-black, sulphur crested and bronze, ducks, wedge tailed eagles and falcons, wrens, plovers, rosellas and crows.

Watching your round you will most likely be wallaby’s, possums and occasional spotted quoll, bandicoot and yes of course the Tasmanian Devil.
