Yes - every day.

This links-style course was recently designed by Ross Watson, and it recalls its English and Irish exemplars, being set in a location that seems perfect for golf, with hollows and dunes surrounded by scrub land. The clubhouse is the center point for two 9-hole tracks that are replete with seventy bunkers. Extending south and west, the front nine features stunning views of the Pacific and Lake Tuggerah on either side. The back nine, on the other hand, moves along north to take on some of the character of the surrounding rainforest and public parkland. This course can be hard on average players, what with the wind and its 6305-meter length, and the contoured and sheltered greens favor the short game. For maximum enjoyment, concentrate on stroke play over match play and don't bother with the pencil and the card. Despite the rugged environs, maintenance is top-notch.

I had been looking forward to playing this course for a while it's always on display in the Australian golfing magazines and they painted a very accurate picture of the quality of the course. It's a links style course that overlooks the Pacific Ocean at times I wish it were more and is nestled amongst the dunes nicely. Great use of bunkers on this Ross Watson designed layout with plenty to avoid excellent use of the land and I'd dare say that not too much excavation was required as the course seemingly rolls through great natural golfing land. The fairways and greens are undulating and a challenge enough for any level of golfer. I found the course to be wide enough for all types of golfer in saying that there is 2 different tees to hit from so there should and is fun to be had on this course. The stadium feel to the 18th is something out of the PGA Tour! Natural bushland surrounds the course with plenty of wildlife and native plants calling Magenta home. The clubhouse and staff were excellent all day and the for the rest of the week we stayed.
