Located 10km south of the city centre Randwick is a par 59, 18 hole, golf course. It is a very short course but has a lot to offer in spactacular ocean views from several of its holes, at a reasonable price.
Interesting course, and a lot of fun, for a course mainly with
It has a good mixture of hole’s, with some very long Par
3’s (235m), but also with some very small Park 3’s
The greens are in great condition, generally fairly big, with
various undulations to test your putting.
A great course for a social hit with your mates, as you can be
back in the club house in few hours for a few beers.
Played here weekend of 4/3/06 and played off back members
markers, and it measured 3545m Par 59 with 13 Par 3s ranging from
95-235m and FIVE Par 4s ranging from 255-350m. No doglegs, no par
5s and no fairway bunkers. Lots of ocean/wind/water hazards.
A very basic short game course that has many par 3s to practice
short hitting and hitting into gusts of wind. The greens were
slow, small with little to no break, but can become fast and firm
when the wind dries the surface. This is one of 4 adjacent
courses along the Sydney Pacific coast (Randwick, The Coast,
St.Michaels, NSW). The 360 degree views from the 6th and 15th
teebeds are magnificent.
Few highlights are the 234m Par 3 6th with OOB on the left, 176m
Par 3 17th with the largest green on the course flanked by 3
bunkers hidden from the tee and the first 5 holes have OOB ocean
on the left! An unusual layout with the 8th and 13th holes
overlapping so watch out. The course is not that well maintained
with poor teebeds, fairways and slightly better greens, but
decent green fees for unlimited holes after 4pm $16 otherwise it
is $23 for 18 holes 7 days a week.
Randwick GC is a par 59 layout next door to The Coast with St.
Michael's and NSW further down the coastline. Randwick has
the most spectacular views of the ocean and coastline of any
course in Sydney and on a windy day is quite imposing.
Whilst there are no par 5's at Randwick, there are plenty of
long par 3's that require woods off the tee, particularly the
6th which at 234m is the longest par 3 in NSW (and probably
Australia). The ocean provides a tantalising hazard on the first
5 holes and if there is a strong westerly wind blowing it can act
like a magnet for stray balls.
Although visitors from long courses may not afford this course
much respect because of its length, it requires an immaculate
short game and the mastery of hitting into strong winds to be
played to handicap. The greens are not particularly big and some
tee positions are close to green edges which makes chipping
The clubhouse offers excellent views of the ocean and the members
are very welcoming. Open days are Tuesday and Sunday. I have been
a member of this course for 5 years and have enjoyed playing it
immensely. For those on golfing holidays to Sydney, Randwick GC
is a good warm-up for its longer cousins next door and will test
your short game for sure.
This was one of the first courses I played.
Randwick golf course is only a short course. The fairways are
flat and kept in good condition. The greens tended to be meduim
on most but some were fast.
This course is kept in good nick all year round. It offers
terrific views on the pacific. Most holes are par 3s some
interesting like the 3rd. Some par 4s are a nice length.
On windy days this course will cause problems.
Randwich runs alongside of the coast golf club, st micheals, and
N.S.W. If your willing to take on any of these three hit Randwich
In all Randwich was a plesure im willing to go back...
Short course, Links style (virtually no trees so hard to lose the
ball). Tees, greens and fairways generally kept in good
condition. No single hole could really be classed as
'difficult', although slopes in some fairways may see you
bounce/roll off a few on the ocean side. Some greens are quite
small. 15th tee is elevated and gives a spectacular view of the
Pacific. No par 5 holes. Good value (midweek $22 currently).
All in all a very pleasant round with the sea breeze to keep you
cool. However, it can be tough when the wind gets up.
Randwick Golf Club is a tricky course with prodomatly par
3's. The course plays really tough esspcially on windy days.
The course has very few trees and is situated on the coast which
provides a great veiws.
