The Millicent Golf Club lies 12 kilometres from the South Australian township of Millicent, 399 kilometres south-east of Adelaide, and 50 kilometres north of Mount Gambier.
It has gained a reputation as one of the state's finest country courses since its opening in August 1961. ‘Glorious wide rolling fairways guide you on a typically Australian journey through stands of large gum trees complemented by native shrubs’.
Three holes were reviewed by Ben Hook from the Sunday Mail and Royal Adelaide Teaching Professional Daniel Blackwell. Millicent Golf Club, a beautiful spot to be.

A long par 3 this one. Hybrid for Ben and 2 iron for Daniel. Maybe they should have both taken driver! A nice hole, if you miss the green, can be tough to make up and down.

With a beautiful view from the tee you’ll really want to get a good first shot away here. If you do, there’s a good chance you’ll make par, if not a bogey beckons.
Reviewed: 13th hole 137m Par 3
A short downhill par 3 with a tricky little green. It will catch you out if you’re not on your game.
