Best Sydney Golf Courses To Try At Least Once In Your Miserable Life

Tee off and take in the views at some of the state's best, and the country's oldest, courses.

Golf is an incredibly popular sport in Australia. Over one million Australians participate in a few rounds each year, with many shouting home about the myriad benefits it provides. Not only does golf naturally introduce a healthy competitive nature within us, but it gets us outside, socialising with others which does wonders for our mental health. The game of golf is also a great mentor for teaching traits such as patience and discipline, because, as anyone who’s ever played will tell you, it’s not a fast game at all.

Whether you’re a semi-pro golfer or a newbie who is more likely to spend their day hacking away in a blind rage, you may as well do it with a scenic backdrop. Fortunately for Sydneysiders, exceptional play and superb scenery are just a short jaunt from the CBD. Despite the City being relatively small by city standards, it, and the surrounding suburbs are well aware that its residents are keen ball-hitters and club-swingers. With this in mind, it’s easy to find a golf course close to home.

As with golf’s more fanciful connotations, a fair few of the golf courses and clubs in Sydney are membership-only, which, unless you’re able to play regularly, probably aren’t worth signing up to. Luckily there are a number of public courses available to book into as well, but there will be a greater chance of the tee time you want being fully booked. With regards to this, we strongly recommend booking a few weeks in advance. In the meantime, you can head to one of Sydney’s driving ranges to practice that swing of yours, or for a bit of fun, check out some of Sydney’s best Putt-Putt play.
