Port Augusta Golf Club
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. The club hosts the Jacob's Creek Port Augusta Golf Classic in the first week of August, attracting 300 players for 7 days of competition.

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.

Port Augusta measures 5757m (Par 70) with four par 3s ranging from 146–165m, twelve par 4s ranging from 312–408m and two par 5s ranging from the 513m straight 2nd (index 2) and the 451m 17th (index 17) which doglegs 45 degrees to the right from 200m off the tee to a green guarded by 2 short side bunkers.

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. (More information at Port Augusta Golf Club website, linked above.)
