New Brighton Golf Club
18 Holes
PAR 72
6185 M


With the forced closure of the North Brighton Golf Club in 1950, Greenkeeper Harry Smith and Professional Charlie Booth were given the task of designing the new course on the banks of the Georges River at Milperra which they achieved with spectacular results. Gently sloping down to the river with native gums, Wattle and Melaleucas, the land was ideal for the purpose.

The beautiful lakeside par threes, many par fours with sloping fairways demanding well placed tee shots and two unusual and spectacular double dogleg par five holes all provide a fine variety of golf. The game at New Brighton Golf Club is a challenging but fair test of golfing skills with due reward for good course management. It is, as the club proudly claims, Sydney’s best kept secret.

New Brighton has been renamed Brighton Lakes as part of a housing estate and a redevelopment of the golf course. The new course,  which includes 7 new holes, has just reopened,  and this was my first chance to play the new course.  Given there has been no rain in the area for the past 2 or 3 months, the grass has held up well, although expect plenty of run on the ball. The new holes are tighter, but not shorter, with placement of shots a big factor, and there is more slope on the greens, meaning placement of approach shots to the greens is a big consideration.  All in all, an improvement on the previous course, and with some good rain and a growing season, the grass on the fairways should come up nicely.  One final thing, $100 for two people and a cart on a Thursday afternoon seemed a bit steep. Pick your day for perhaps a cheaper rate, or try a course like Liverpool. A better established course, and maybe better value for money.  All courses seem to have a cheaper day.

Very average course condition. Typical western suburbs public style. Many better choices to play in the area. I would put this at the bottom.

Played in the open comp Sunday morning to an anticpated start at this recommended course. Slightly disapointed. The course was good, but not great. Conditioning was ok, with the greens patchy and inconsistent in speed. Fairways again patchy, which had been burnt in the hot tempertures the week before. The course layout was good without being great. Bunkering was generally shallow and needed more maintenance as weeds were growing in many of them, plus also needing a little more sand. Very hot in the midday sun getting to the end of the round. Local knowledge a great advantage to get the most out of the course. Enjoyable, but lacking the wow factor.

This is a very nice course with interesting holes, water & sloped greens. Some noise from the M5 ditracts from what is a very scenic round. It was busy but not slow on a Saturday social booking, bit late but we didnt get held up much when we were on.

It's a pity that there have not been any reviews on this course for 2 years. I played here the other day and the course is in outstanding condition generally except for some parts of fairways and some greens surrounds and I am a member at a much more expensive club. I understand they have some new greens staff and the course is certainly benefiting. The Greens were great and quick for this time of year. The best holes to me are the 6th par 5, 7th par 3, 10th par 4, 12th par 5, 14th par 5, 15th par 5 and 17th par 3 from the back. Ross Watson is going to do some work on new land acquired on the south side of the M5 with about 8-10 new holes as there will be a residential subdivision on the top part of the course and they will lose about 4-5 holes there. The par will be about 70/71 and about 6150m in total I am told. It will be fantastic. This is a club I will join as the works are being done, because I reckon it will become the best course in Sydney at $1500 per year and no joining fee. Even though I live in the North Sydney area, on an early morning run down the M5 it takes about 30 minutes. I'm surprised by only the 3 1/2 stars, although these are old ratings. It is much much better than that. I'd give it 5 plus a 6 for potential. With a new clubhouse and friendly people, this will make the perfect members course now, but particularly when the new holes are completed. Having played all of the decent courses in this local area recently, it's condition is equal with Bankstown and its layout is equal with Liverpool. In fact, a member told me New Brighton held the pre-qualifying for the Australian Open in each of the last 3 years, which is a testament to the quality of the layout, despite what some people below say. It is a true test of golf. It is a hard course, but it will reward good golf as well and you can't ask for more than that.
