Tee off on beautiful courses in NSW
Golf in Sydney requires extra concentration. You’ll need to ignore the allure of fine beaches and ocean views and focus on the ball. The city has many golf courses, including a nine-hole course with views over Bondi Beach.
Visitors are welcome at many golf courses in Sydney and at other NSW destinations, such as the Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and Southern Highlands. Teed Up and Platinum Pro Golf offer tours to top courses. Sydney HeliTours has helicopter rides to excellent courses on the Central Coast and in the Hunter Valley.
If you are in a hurry, Bondi Golf Club’s short course may be just the thing. Or, just minutes from the city centre, is Moore Park Golf Club, part of Centennial Parklands. Eastlake Golf Club is an 18-hole course near Sydney Airport with views of the city skyline.
On the city’s northern beaches is Long Reef Golf Club at Collaroy. Golfing great Peter Thomson, who won the British Open five times, has described Long Reef, with its dramatic coastal views, as the “best site of any golf course in Sydney.”
Resorts in the winegrowing Hunter Valley have championship golf courses set among the vineyards. Three popular courses are Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club, the Greg Norman-designed Vintage, and the Hunter Valley Golf and Country Club.
