As soon as you arrive at Ocean Shores Country Club you will immediately be infused with the most important sense that this part of paradise offers …serenity.

Just North of Brunswick Heads and 40 minutes South of Coolangatta Airport in the Northern Rivers district of New South Wales Australia, is the magnificent championship golf course rated in the top 15 courses in NSW. Set in an area of natural flora with tidal lakes, rivers and mountain ranges as a backdrop, the picturesque beauty is spectacular.

Ocean Shores championship course was designed by Bruce Devlin some 30 years ago and has many unique features. The foremost of these is the enormous greens -13,000 square metres with the fifth green alone accounting for 1100 square metres – enough room for a house and tropical orchard.

The 18 hole layout comprises six par 3’s, six par 4’s and six par 5’s. This distribution lends itself to the unique nature of the course. The lush fairways and pristine greens set against a backdrop of bushland and the sparkling lakes make it one of the most spectacular courses in Australia.

Golfers often comment on the tranquility of the bushland setting with each fairway an island oasis mainly out of view from the other holes with just the sound of club on ball and the birdlife being the only distractions.

Good course with a challenging layout. The mix of holes and layout fits the natural area well and uses the water to great advantage (or is that disadvantage to us hack golfers?) Course is well maintained with good quality and quantity of sand in the numerous bunkers, fairways mowed to a good height and the 'rough' just long enough to penalise for errant tee shots but not so out of control you lose your ball.This course has you thinking risk vs reward. Play safe and smart and you'll make in around OK, but start to take it on and be prepared to pay the price in shots and golf balls.Just watch out, at the 19th, you'll HATE the view from the front deck!

Tough golf course. Some of the six par 5s are 550m and uphill. It was a challenge for me to reach in regulation. 

The third is a dog leg right par 5 with a net to the right of the tee and water left and right. All ok if you can play a fade to order. 

Took the 52 AUD  per person for two in a cart deal which included lunch. This was great value. 

Enjoyed the day and will be back.

I love visiting Ocean Shores. Always in good condition and I like the mix of 6 X Par 3, 4 & 5 's. Excellent views of the course and the ocean from the club house and the staff are always friendly. Looking forward to getting back again.

Agree with IGOLFER. Played yesterday. Fairways too short with multiple bare patches. Inconsistent greens. Great layout. Was and still should be one of the best in Australia. Greens will not hold shots. Photos on Club website not current. What a pity.

Course fairways has been poisoned trying to replace lush natural fairways. Back condition nine a bad joke. Half of famous Tifdwarf greens replaced by inferior grass. Originally top twenty in Australia. Currently not in Top 300. Layout still great but needs urgent TLC and restoration. Management needs shake up. Waterways badly neglected.

Great layout and massive smooth greens. Course is well maintained with some real thinking holes rather than just driver wedge all day! Back nine has no fairway irrigation yet, but apprently the 10th has been done and 18th aswell! Greens are huge so you will hit more GIR's but you will be sure to have more putts. Nice fully stocked clubhouse and shop...good ocean views!
