COURSE DETAILS

One of Lake Macquarie's best known attractions is Belmont Golf Club, situated on the isthmus between the lake and the Pacific Ocean.

Belmont Golf Club is an 18-hole par-72 championship links course set amongst rolling green fairways and trees with many of the fairways having the Pacific Ocean as their backdrop.

First opened in 1952, the course has over the years been continually improved to meet the playing expectations of golfers of all levels.

The club is home to the prestigious Greater Building Society Lake Macquarie Ladies and Mens' Amateur Championships held in January each year.

Belmont Golf Club is accessed off the Pacific Highway half an hour or so from Newcastle’s CBD with scenic views of the Pacific Ocean in particular on the back nine. The course is generally a links style layout with some generous fairways, heavy bunkering around the greens and numerous hazards spread throughout. The front nine however, has more trees and few narrower fairways which is a good contrast to the back side. The 462m par 5 4th has the toughest tee shot on the front with thick native scrub to the right, fairway bunkers and water hazards further up the left to contend with. The real highlights start as you approach the 10th green with a spectacular elevated outlook over Nine Mile Beach awaiting once you reach the top of the slope and the putting surface. Other holes of note include the 401m par 4 14th with unobstructed views of the beach and down the wide fairway toward Swansea Heads and the neat little 110m par 3 16th which is the newest addition to the layout. Construction of two synthetic bowling greens in place of the old par 3 12th hole has altered the layout which means the last par 3 tees off amongst the sand dunes and beside the ocean. Although short in length, the green is quite undulating and is surrounded by spinifex and pigface grass which as well as stopping erosion can be a nightmare to play out of.  A new fairway is under construction and sits between the existing 15th hole and the beach which will further alter the layout but also provide a great new hole with more unlimited views. The overall condition at Belmont is top rate with finely manicured surfaces and a challenging layout with scenery that most courses would envy. This place should be one of the first courses you look at when next teeing off in the Newcastle area.

Played this course in the comp on Tuesday the 6th of May for the 1st time. I was very suprised by the quality of this course. The fairways were in good condition,the greens were reasonably fast and true. The only criticism i have is that the sand in the bunkers was very ordinary. I was told by the members we were playing with that the club was changing the sand soon. The members were very friendly. Overall, it was a good day and i would happily go back for another game.

Attended Belmont GC during the recent ladies amateur tournament as a caddy. Course is absolutely magnificent leaving me cursing being a caddy not a player. Very impressed with the course and its layout. It looks as though better players should tear it apart but none did so. The volunteers at the tournament did a fantastic job in assisting and made the event even more pleasurable. Love links style golfing and this is a beauty.

Great little course! Played it today and was quite impressed! Greens were firm, very true, quick and very receptive with the short sticks. Wind was blowing an absolute gale, you know your in for a tough time when the local pro at a links course tells you its windy and wet. Gusts were up to 70k's and putting had to wait a couple of times. Would love to.come diwn and play the amateur down here, looks like they would put on a grrat show.

Played last Monday, was excellent. Front 9 is indeed more wooded than a traditional links course, but this divides the course nicely into 2 halves. 3hrs 50mins to get around in a group of 4, would have been quicker had i not lost balls in the saltbush on the dunes due to horrendous slicing on a 2 hole stretch. Will definately be back.

I would agree with the previous reviewer regarding the time it took to play. It took us about 6 hours to get around. I would also agree that the members we encountered were somewhat rude. At one stage we were waiting to for the green to clear on a par 3 and they asked us to hurry up. And they weren't joking! But the course was good. The front nine is a little more tree lined than a normal seaside links, but the back nine is of a more traditional open to the elements style. The wind certainly played more of a part as we got in to the course.
