About
The Links Shell Cove is located in the Illawarra region on the South Coast. Our new-look course is known for its friendly and inviting atmosphere. With four teeing options to choose from, it provides an enjoyable and flexible experience for golfers of all skill levels. Voted as one of the top 50 courses in Australia to play for under $50, The Links Shell Cove golf course offers unbeatable value, and is a must to consider when planning your next golfing getaway or social round. You can also test your golfing skills with our most recent addition, the mini but mighty SHANX Mini Golf! Fun and challenging for all ages, the course is a scaled-down version of a full-size golf course, designed to be played with the same rules as golf. The fun doesn't end there! The Tavern at Shell Cove is the locals home away from home. Featuring a sports bar and lounge, bottle shop and highly regarded IL Lago Restaurant, it's a popular place to catch up with loved ones over a drink and a bite to eat.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was good, service was unbelievably bad, we waited for approxiamately 1 hour for deserts to be plated and served, table wasn't cleared in an appropriate time span, we go roughly every couple of months and spend in excess of $400 each time, we won't be back, continually getting worse.

Their handicap chart is out of whack - this course is MUCH harder than it says on paper.

Great holes throughout but plenty of Par 3s can overshadow it. Some short Par 4s as well but plenty of holes you need to *think* your way through.

Bring some balls - you’ll lose plenty. Bunkers and greens in good shape but unfortunately one hole out of play and Index 1 was also reduced to a 110m par 3 when we played (and still no discount on cart fee etc).

Pro shop well stocked with great gear (and good sales!) but clubhouse let itself down with kitchen closed during peak afternoon time.

Certainly worth playing! Been twice and will be back.

Our group of four couples visited the restaurant last night. Prior to Covid, this restaurant had been one of our favourites with excellent food. Sadly this has changed dramatically. whilst the renovations look great, the standard of the food was very poor. Three in our group had schnitzel which was dry and tough and very overcooked. The pork belly was of very poor standard. We arrived at 6pm and ordered promptly before the restaurant was busy. All four couples ordered at the same time. The meals did not arrive close together, in fact one of our couples waited half an hour after their partner had been served. Some of the food was cold and some of us were finished our meal before others even arrived. Overall, the evening was a huge disappointment in terms of food quality and delivery. We will not return to this venue.

I was desperate to find a venue for my husband's memorial and the Shellcove Links fitted me in two days before the event. All the staff from the restaurant, bar and the table waiters etc were so efficient and helpful. They helped us out with the food which was delicious and also the tv and sound system
I would definately be recommending your club to friends and family for future functions and dinner bookings. Thanks so much for your help.

Visited The Tavern today for lunch with friends. Absolutely terrible meal.
I had pork belly burger- there were two pieces of dry over cooked pork belly that I could not cut with a knife. It was served with chips which were cold. They are taking advantage of,dine and discover vouchers to serve poor quality over cooked food
Would definitely not recommend it and we won't be going again.
