Hole 14: Wongawilli

Par: 4

Distance: 300 metres

Unleashing the driver on this hole should position your ball to attack the flag for your second shot.

The green slopes from front to back and can be quite quick.

There is an out of bounds on the right side and a grass bunker on the right.

Being on the green in regulation does not necessarily mean a par.

Wongawilli Colliery 1908 - present

Prospected by Andrew Lang in 1907, the Wongawilli Coal Syndicate was formed in 1908. By 1910 coal was being hauled to the Dapto Railway Station by 40 horses and 10 bullocks.

G&C Hoskins and Sons of Lithgow purchased the mine in 1916, and installed a washery and coke works to supply their blast furnaces at Lithgow (the coal made stronger coke than Lithgow coal).

AIS acquired the colliery, and in 1936 installed the ‘longest coal haulage incline in the world’.

In 1970 the mine was amalgamated with Nebo and Kemira to become known as Elouera Colliery.

As of 2014, the mine was owned by Jindal Steel and Power Ltd and operating as Wollongong Coal Ltd.
