How to get there: Located on the outskirts of Launceston you are better off driving, or call the Club for bus service details.

General Description: In typical country club style there is a 72 hole golf course, driving range, health centre, and horse riding and trout fishing are offered.  Needs more than a day trip to be fully appreciated.  Table numbers are as follows:

$5-$200: 5
$10-$400: 5

The low table maximums are a real restriction for card counters.  May be overcome by backbetting during high true counts but this may attract more attention from the pit supervisor.  Very favourable rules gives Launceston the lowest house edge in Australia.
