The Cromer Golf Club is a private championship course with first class facilities situated on Sydney’s Northern Beaches adjacent to the Narrabeen Lakes and the surrounding Garigal National Park.

The course has classic bushland settings. It is an excellent course that has been upgraded to meet future demands. Native flora, an abundance of bird life and a cool breeze from the calming water of the lakes, creeks and ponds equally match this impeccable presentation.

The Clubhouse offers excellent dining and snack bar facilities. Special occasions, corporate days and weddings in a selection of function rooms provide excellent viewing of the course. The bar area includes an open fireplace for winter and an open deck and BBQ area for fresh country air and drinks in the summer.

The relaxed pace and friendly atmosphere all contribute to an escape that is surprisingly only 25 minutes drive from the Sydney CBD. Cromer Golf Club takes pride in ensuring that the overall package caters to your needs as a friend of our golfing community. Cromer Golf Club invites you to visit the club where relaxation and friendliness are foremost.

Cromer deserves more than 3.5 star rating. It has some of the best greens in sydney. With a few more garden beds and wastelands, lifting the general presentation this could be one of the best courses in sydney.

Reviewed this course a few years back and it was horrible, but.... What a change has been made there now. These are the best greens in Sydney!! That's not a small statement. The new greens keeper was told to rip up all the old greens (a metre deep) and seed and grow brand new greens. The new greens are fantastic. Add to this the new par 3 on the back 9 near the lake and I would favour Cromer over all the other private courses on the Northern Beaches bar Elanora. Great fairways and tees. All they lacked was a proper practice area. Happy to go back there when invited.

Played Cromer two Sundays ago course was in good condition greens extremely soft especially on a 33 degree hot summers day maybe the green staff were trying to protect them so hence the speed of the greens weren't slick at all. Not a bad course played the back nine as my front nine and front nine as my back. I found my last four holes very mundane that being the 6 7 8 & 9th holes basically oing up and down that traditional old style course. Overall it wasn't too bad an experience mixed grass couch & kikuyu a little annoying. I think the course would struggle for drainage in winter or wet days but all in all It was ok.

Time for an update on this private course.there has been a few changes at Cromer which now measures 6065m Par 70 (black tees) with five par 3s ranging from 135-180m, ten par 4s ranging from 329-423m and three par 5s ranging from 445-531m. More changes will occur with the Narrabeen Lagoon walking trail planned to close the 15th which will be built as a similar 170m length teeshot towards the clubhouse (between the 12th nursery and the 16th). The current 16th tee will be moved up near the 12th nursery and will play straighter to the Par 5 green. All these changes will occur within the next year or so and would not change the Par 70 course. Course has a mixture of Santa Ana couch/kikuyu grass fairways and rough with eucalypt tree-lined layout and has 8 southern holes near the clubhouse then 10 northern holes out towards the Narrabeen Lagoon and South Creek. In fact, the current 8th hole is set up to be a good finishing hole as its green is under the clubhouse. The 20-30m long A1/A4 bentgrass greens have good speed and roll and were all resurfaced nearly 12 months ago. There are numerous small ponds and creeks which traverse the flat terrain and mostly sandy-loam soil-based tree-lined layout with holes 3-5 being the only holes on the course above the probable maximum flood event. Every hole is bunkered with a total of 66 bunkers on the course. There is also the luxury of having a spare hole along the 14th which a short 117m par 3 hole with 2 bunkers. FRONT NINE highlights include: the 416m long par 4 straight 5th (index 4) with an elevated tee and a fairway bunker 260m off the tee on the left to a green with a bunker right; the 362m straight 7th (index 11) which is the most bunkered hole on the course with 2 fairway bunkers off the tee to a green with another 4 bunkers; the 351m straight 8th (index 5) with 2 fairway bunkers off the tee with a yellow-staked creek 20m short and along the leftside of the long green guarded by 3 rear bunkers underneath the clubhouse; and the 178m slightly uphill 9th (index 12) with a 2-tier front-sloping green guarded by 2 bunkers. The front nine is flat with an open stormwater drainage channel snaking across most holes and beneath the clubhouse. Holes 5-8 are straight up-and-back holes with the flags visible from the tee. The front nine course elevation ranges from 2-12m above sea level with the teeshot at the 5th being 20m above sea level and the 5th fairway being 15m fall below. BACK NINE highlights include: the 399m straight 13th (index 3) with tall trees lining the rightside fairway and 2 fairway bunkers off the tee to an elevated green with 2 bunkers; the 423m long par 4 straight 14th (index 1) with a highly elevated back tee with OOB left and with the same tall trees lining the rightside fairway and a fairway bunker right off the tee and another bunker 90m short left of the flat green with 2 bunkers; the 170m 15th (index 16) with a teeshot along the watersedge to a small green with 2 bunkers; the 531m slight bend left 16th (index 2) with the red-staked South Creek native vegetation along the entire leftside with a fairway bunker left off the tee and another bunker 100m short right of the green with the yellow-staked open stormwater drainage channel crossing the fairway 40m short of the green guarded by 2 bunkers. Holes 13-16 are the course's best attributes. The par 5s are generally varied in length and are reasonably challenging with the 531m 16th being the best shame the length and its orientation will be changed to make way for the Narrabeen Lagoon multi-use trail. The par 3s were varied in elevation but were not too long and not overly bunkered either, which is where you must score your points on! Course elevation ranges from approximately 2m above sea level at the lowest point along the holes near Narrabeen Lake and along the 16th hole to 24m above sea level from the elevated black tees at 10 and 14. The course only has 350m of Narrabeen Lagoon frontage along its northern boundary and South Creek forms the entire length of the eastern boundary, with homes along its southern boundary and a ridge to the west. The ridge to the west rises over 130m above sea level that shades the course earlier than sunset which can lead to an earlier finishing time. Established in the 1920s and opened as an 18-hole golf course since 1932 Cromer is now one of Sydney's northern beaches better golf courses. Sydney's northern beaches boasts TEN 18-hole golf courses with 5 being exclusively private (Elanora, Terrey Hills, Monash, Cromer, Manly) and the other 5 allowing some public/social players on most occasions (Bayview, Long Reef, Mona Vale, Wakehurst, Warringah). Played here again most recently on 26/7/2012 off the back plates at this exclusive golf course which is for members and their guests. For a private course it does not particularly have great practice facilities or even great winter course conditioning, but the clubhouse is modern and has a great view of the 8th hole. Will play again when the 15th and 16th are redesigned for the Narrabeen Lagoon multi-use trail and distance markers are put on the fairway sprinkler heads

Great spot for a game if you can get a hit there.

Nice setting and some quite challenging Par 4s. Trees aren't really tall enough or dense enough to get over/around. Greens are tough but generally fair. Layout is tad all over the place / up and down. Overall condition needs some attention.
