Founded in 1897, Bonnie Doon is considered one of Sydney's best golf courses. It is the city's third-oldest golf club and one of the oldest in Australia. Located only 15 minutes from the city and five minutes from Sydney's international airport, the golf course at Bonnie Doon enjoys championship and Group One status. Slick greens, many with pronounced undulations, have long been recognised as among the best putting surfaces in NSW. Elevated tees and greens with sweeping views of the city are key features of the course design, as are the sand hills which bring unique challenges to many of the holes.
