That it recovered its reputation was a matter of importance to golf in Australia because it is such a significant course and as conditions improved the club became the most sought after membership in Sydney. It is the closest we have to the brand of golf made famous by the links at Pebble Beach and for those who love raw golf where the chances of fighting a battering wind are high, it is the greatest thrill in Australia.

The New South Wales Golf Club is a private members only golf club does not offer 7 day a week public access times. Subject to special events, they do, however, allow limited public access during weekdays only. No weekend times are available unless invited by a member. Bookings are essential.

Played today on a wet & wild day with a few sunny breaks. What an amazing course! The views are spectacular & there are some great holes with blind shots & very interesting bunkering & dog legs. Every tee shot is a challenge & good shots are well rewarded & bad shots will eat you up. This is a scenario of many courses but this one has more emotion involved due to the proximity & stature of this great course.

Played NSW for the first time yesterday.. What a day! Played the back tee on the par 3 6th and had to hit past a person fishing below which was strange and cool. I thought the 15th wasn't a great hole but other than that was awesome.

Great course! Has a fantastic layout and at the time of writing has some of the best greens in Sydney - absolutely perfect speed and true. There are some fantastic holes here including the 5th, 6th and 7th. The course is inside a national park and feels separate from the hustle and bustle of the noise of Sydney - except the noise of the wind.

Ah the wind. Here the wind is not a factor, it is often the factor. It can get so strong the course can become unplayable on many holes. And there are quite a few blind shots so unless you have local knowledge there can be guess-work Involved and there is the risk of hitting-up on groups in front of you.

All-in-all a great course and a tough test of golf.

Played NSW in a Vardon event on the 14th Feb and had an enjoyable day. Course was in fantastic condition and the first thing you notice from the clubhouse is the 360 degree view of surrounding Botany Bay, the CBD and the Tasman Sea. Another interesting feature is the use of the square tee boxes, somewhat similar to most American courses. The practice facilities are first class with 2 putting greens and chipping green and full 260m practice range. Once out on the golf course, its you and NSW in all of its beauty. Once you pass the 3rd green, the course starts to open up to the links style game required to be successful at NSW. The 5th is possibly the most photographed par 5 in the country, plunging downhill to the green, the 6th is the most stunning par 3 in the country and the par 4 7th is one of the most difficult 390m holes in the country. Most of the back 9 is superb, starting at the 10th playing towards the south with a heavily bunkered green. The 11th, a stunning downhill par 3 with panoramic views. The par 5 12th with a hill to carry at 235m to give yourself a realistic chance at reaching the green in two. The 13th, dogleg left par 4 with an infinity green with the backdrop of Port Phillip Head. the 14th across the chasm playing alongside the beach. The 15th, one of the toughest driving holes in the country. The 16th a brutal 410m dogleg par 4 followed by the 155m par 3 17th, which is one of the most difficult par 3s in the country if played into the wind. This holes gave up a load of big numbers during the vardon event. Lastly, the par 5 18th with the huge hill to the left of the green to seat the thousands of spectators at the Aussie Open. All in all, if I were to give one tip, if you're not confident with Driver, don't hit it.

Great track, managed to get on early morning so did not have the full extent of the wind until later in the back 9. Love how the course plays 2 different ways through the front and back, mixes up the scenery. Would rate it just ahead of NSWGC due to the fact it favoured my golfing style.

This course was designed by Alister MacKenzie who co designed Augusta National and Royal Melbourne.NSW is a good old fashioned Links golf course,you could be in Scotland playing in the British Open,it is in pristine condition and should only be attempted to be played by the serious golfer.The welcome you receive on arrival is heart warming the Professional desribed the course as "the beauty and the beast" and that says it all.I am sure every day you play it the course will be different,it showed its teeth when we played with winds well in excess of 45 MPH,we saw even the loacl members taking their carts back to the clubhouse mid round !The signature hole is the par 3 6th,take a walk over the small foot bridge and see where the Pros play from.This is a serious golf course for serious golfers,it was $190 per person with carts on top so only to be played if your a serious aficionado of golf.
