The Coober Pedy Opal Fields Golf Club has been offering a unique course for golfers since 1976.  The course traverses the desert flats and gibber hills of Coober Pedy.  The greens are black and the fairways are white!  Many a golfer have found opal whilst playing a round.

This 18-hole, 72 par grass-less golf course appears in various list of the top 10 most unusual golf courses in the world. Golfers use a piece of artificial grass to tee off. The putting greens, called scrapes, are oiled down sand which is raked smooth.

Visitors to Coober Pedy can play a round by contacting Old Timers Mine in Coober Pedy or heading out to the Club on a Friday evening 6pm for tee off in a social 3 – 4 hole (or however many you want to play) ambrose.
