Time Out Sydney

Sydney has some spectacular golf courses, both in difficulty and scenery. Here are Time Out's pick of the best you can play

NSW Golf Club

Perched atop the cliffs overlooking Botany Bay, this A-class course will put your skills to the test. With no shortage of high winds, stunning ocean views and world-famous holes (the fifth, in particular), NSW is the closet you'll find to the brand of golf made famous by the links at Pebble Beach.

Camden Lakeside Country Club

Expect pot bunkers, undulating greens and a natural rural landscape at this par 72 course, rated amongst the best. Catherine Field.

Set in 237 hectares of bushland by the Hawkesbury River and wildlife reserve, the 18-hole par 72-championship course has expansive greens, world-class facilities and is a good one for golfers of all standards. Cattai.

Oatlands Golf Club

Established in 1931, the 5748-metre course has been described as the best par 70 course in Australia. It's also home to the NSW Women's Open. Oatlands.

Bonnie Doon Golf Club

If you crave good greens, this is among the best putting surfaces in NSW, with the strength of the course lying in its par 4s. Pagewood.


The Lakes Golf Club

Although the course is going through a slight makeover, you can still play the back nine holes - the course's highlight. Regarded as one of the best Sydney courses, it's been home to many tournaments, including the Australian Open and Australian PGA. Eastlakes.
