West Beach Parks Golf is home to some of the best public golf facilities in South Australia, with immaculate greens and a picturesque natural environment, complemented by a range of facilities. Owned and operated by West Beach Parks, the precinct’s golf facilities includes two beautiful public golf courses The Patawalonga par 72 and The Short Course par 50.

Built on a sandy base with mature trees and water hazards the Patawalonga Championship links style course is one of the best public golf courses in South Australia. Measuring 5913 metres in length and green sizes averaging 750m2 the Patawalonga caters for all golfer’s abilities and needs.
THE SHORT COURSE
The Short Course is an American style 15 hole course which consists of 10 par 3’s ranging from 98-172m and 5 par 4’s ranging from 197-258m. With small undulating greens with kikuyu fairways and measuring 2500 metres in length the picturesque Executive course is a perfect course for beginners and for those who are looking to sharpen up their short game skills. With relaxed dress code no booking required the Executive course is available to public at all times.
It is with great excitement that we announce that The Paraplegic and Quadriplegic Association of SA (PQSA) is gifting a brand new ParaGolfer to West Beach Parks for anyone to use that has a disability and requires a wheelchair.
The ParaGolfer is an all-terrain wheelchair that raises the user into a standing position to allow them to allow a more traditional golf swing. The ParaGolfer is able to access most areas of the golf course, including greens. The machine will be available for free to anyone that requires it. This is the first one of it’s kind in South Australia.
The ParaGolfer is able to access most areas of the golf course. Its low-pressure tyres and wide stance allow it to be used on all areas of the golf course (including greens and appropriately designed bunkers), and on the driving range and practice area. Apart from golf, the ParaGolfer can be used for any activity that would benefit from its all-terrain capabilities and stand-up functionality. The ParaGolfer is regularly used by people with high level spinal cord injuries, but can also be used by anyone with mobility or stability issues. Equipment - Empower Golf Australia.

THE WEST BEACH PARKS GOLF ETIQUETTE STATEMENT
This Statement provides guidelines on the manner in which the game of golf should be played at West Beach Parks Golf . If they are followed, all players will gain maximum enjoyment from the game. The overriding principle is that consideration should be shown to others on the course at all times.
Players should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like when they make a stroke or practice swing. Players should not play until the players in front are out of range. Players should always alert green staff nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them. If a player plays a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone, he should immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such situations is “fore”.
Pace of Play - Play at Good Pace and Keep Up
Players should play at a good pace. It is a group’s responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If it loses a clear hole and it is delaying the group behind, it should invite the group behind to play through, irrespective of the number of players in that group. Where a group has not lost a clear hole, but it is apparent that the group behind can play faster, it should invite the faster moving group to play through.
Be Ready to Play
Players should be ready to play as soon as it is their turn to play. When playing on or near the putting green, they should leave their bags or carts in such a position as will enable quick movement off the green and towards the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green.
Care of the Course
Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them and any nearby made by others. If a rake is within reasonable proximity of the bunker, the rake should be used for this purpose.
Repair of Divots, Ball-Marks and Damage by Shoes
Players should carefully repair any divot holes made by them and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball (whether or not made by the player himself). On completion of the hole by all payers in the group, damage to the putting green caused by golf shoes should be repaired. All players must carry a sand bucket at all times and fill all divots on fairways when made.
