Description:With the beautiful Flinders Ranges making a spectacular backdrop for Port Augusta’s Golf Course, 18 fully grassed greens and fairways and a licensed Club, the course is considered one of the best country courses in northern South Australia. All golfing visitors are welcome, and those with an AGU official handicap are also welcome to join in the competitions. The Club is staffed by volunteers and is open every day from 8am to 4pm. The Bar is open Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm until approximately 6pm and Friday's from 5.30pm. Limited golf club hire is available from the club house.

The course has fairly wide and quite lush kikuyu fairways with patches of couch grass. The rough has softish red sand/dirt with clover weeds and even some patches of couch grass with short tree-lined fairways with some clusters of saltbush. The medium-to-large sized greens have tifdwarf couch grass greens which are dormant in the winter and can run fast but true. There is also a mix of couch/kikuyu grass surrounding the greens.

There are 31 bunkers on the course which guard most holes.
