Pymble Golf Course, located in the heart of Sydney’s beautiful North Shore residential district, is regarded as one of the finest inland courses in Australia. Surrounded by magnificent homes, the picturesque course measuring 6094metres, meanders through creek filled gullies and over heavily treed hills providing a golf experience of perhaps unequalled beauty and challenge.

Pymble is a private Club with a championship golf course. However the facilities are available to the public both for golf and functions.

Well kept course with good conditioning. The overall layout is very hilly with most holes going either up or down the various hills. Generally speaking most holes favour a fade from the tee and a good judge of rise and fall with an iron. The greens are generally in good condition. Not a huge fan of the Kikuyu fairways and rough as can be very sticky and heavy, which means you need to fly the ball close to the pin, ruling out any bump and run shots. A good course with some points of interest however wouldn't rush back to play.

Measures 6034m Par 72 with five par 3s ranging from 137-189m, eight par 4s ranging from 288-413m and five par 5s ranging from 438-504m. The 4th and 13th fairways are adjoined by some modern and grand St Ives homes and townhouses along the rear of Pentecost Avenue and Cowan Road. Other than these holes I always seem to get this course layout confused with Pennant Hills as the rolling hills and finishing par 3 18th holes look and play similarly uphill at both courses with the clubhouse in the background. The medium-tall tree-lined parkland style course has wide and lush kikuyu fairways, with medium-to-large sized greens which are bent grass and poa on some back nine holes which play consistent with good but not overly fast. Some of the kikuyu rough around the greens can be quite long and difficult to get out of. The large and flat couch teebeds were a pleasure to play off. The 9th and 13th changes have now increased the course's sand traps to 68 bunkers. Highlights include: the 504m straight 2nd (index 7) with a greenside bunker short left, the 413m Par 4 slightly downhill 4th (index 5) with OOB homes on the left with 2 bunkers short left & right to avoid, the 370m slight dogleg right 5th (index 1) with a right-sloping fairway off the tee, then slightly uphill to a green guarded by 2 bunkers short left & right, the newly constructed 303m 13th (index 15) with 5 fairway bunkers 200-240m off the elevated tee to avoid on the right towards the slightly elevated green guarded by 2 bunkers short & rear. Finally the signature 365m slight dogleg right 16th (index 2) with a teeshot over the dam to the leftside is required to avoid water right, tall trees and 2 bunkers all on the dogleg corner, go too far left off the tee and the overhanging branches behind the 8th tee impede your shot to leftside of the green which has another creek 10m short across the fairway with 4 bunkers and manicured gardens surrounding the island garden-like green my favourite hole by far! Apart from the 189m 3rd, the par 3s are not long but definitely not easy to par with numerous bunkers and swales to avoid. And apart from the 2nd, the par 5s are generally short and the weakest component of the course. Played here a few times now most recently 11/7/2011 with $60 competition fees booked through golflink.com.au. You don't necessarily have to hit the ball straight here as the fairway landing areas are quite wide. Clubhouse is smallish with friendly staff and is great for functions. The private course is well-maintained, though I feel it is overpriced for membership for me to join here. Definitely not as challenging and well-conditioned as Avondale, but Pymble has its challenges and is always in good condition. I probably wouldn't rush back to play if invited, but if you have not played here and get the chance to, give it a go as they run open competitions no more than a few times a year.

Played the course on the weekend and it was in great condition. Two new holes were also a nice improvement since I last played.

Played Pymble in their open day July 2010. I think its probably unfair to rate it at the moment because it was in very poor condition, they obviously have a major issue with their greens. You could see that it has very good design and some great holes particularly on the back nine and I would like to play it again when its in good condition. There are temporary greens on most holes that look like they are about to come into play so I don't envy the members for the next six months or so...

I am a member at Pymble and have seen the course get better and better over the years. The overall condition of the course is great with the greens being fast and true. I don't personally like the barrier grass surrounding the reens and if it rains, holes 9 and 14 do get very damp. However, there are some great holes with 15 and 16 being the best in my opinion and the course is awesome to play on all year round

Terrific course which is undergoing some minor repairs - cant wait to play late spring when in full bloom. ideal for pulling the big dog out of the bag, as fairways reasonably wide and the tree line is patchy. most 2nd shots are tricky with mass bunkers lining the fairway leading upto the greens & surrounding them. bring your pull buggy as the 6100m trek is all hills. great challenge - get on if you get a chance.
