Visitors welcomed

This club at La Perouse is the best that Sydney has to offer in the way of links-style golf. Alister MacKenzie, as part of his Australian tour in the 1920s, situated the course on a sandy strip of peninsula south of town overlooking Botany Bay, observing that "it presents, I think, more spectacular views than any other place I know with the possible exception of Cypress Point in California." The ocean is almost always in view, and the rocky ground determines the placement of the holes, as is particularly evident in the case of the 5th, 6th and 7th. The Australian PGA Championship was played here, though the remoteness and relatively small size of the site have kept it from being a regular venue for the Australian Open. Nevertheless, visitors to Sydney who can only fit in one round of golf are advised to go to the New South Wales.

Taking advantage of the Australian generosity, I got invited to join a member at NSW and I was up for a treat! Full disclosure, the wind was blowing hard and the course kicked my ass... but I had a great time. The course is in very good shape, and the back 9 is one of the best back nines you can play. Few holes are right on the edge (even over for the par 3 6th) the Sydney coastline and offer a great challenge to all players. Each par 3 plays in a different direction, so you really have to think hard about the type of shots and power of the wind before hitting your shot... Only very good shot will be rewarded! The clubhouse is also stunning and Tom Doak has been commissioned to re-do some work... curious to see how he can improve this already great course!

To say I was looking forward to playing NSW would be an understatement. The day I played NSWGC was also the day we announced that we had a bun in the oven! A beautiful day was given by the Gods the day I played here, making for an even more pleasurable experience. Even stole a few par's which made it extra good :) The course was in excellent condition, fairways and greens running true. I must also put a shout out to all staff and members at NSWGC, nothing was to much, always helped out and the greens keepers asked me if I wanted my photo taken! Great routing, tough course in general but hey I wasn't complaining! One of the best, NSW, Thank you!
