Situated on the rugged cliffs at La Perouse, New South Wales Golf Club overlooks Botany Bay, where Captain James Cook first sailed into Australia on the HMS Endeavour in 1770. Today golfers continue to make the pilgrimage to this sacred site to tackle a course built by nature, framed by the Pacific Ocean, and shaped by perhaps the greatest hand of all – Dr. Alister McKenzie.

NSW Golf Club’s inspiring layout is bound by water on three sides and has many of the characteristics of true links golf. Magnificently wild and exposed, the entire course offers tremendous views and a series of stunning holes built around, over, and through the hills and valleys that lead toward the coastline. The course’s undulating fairways and small greens call for great skill in shot-making when the sea breezes blow. 

It has been written that golf had its origins on unique seascapes similar to this one, where the wind is a dominating factor, and the direction from which it blows makes any of the eighteen holes comparatively easy or extremely difficult.

In short, this is more than just a golf course – it is an unforgettable experience of nature. To play golf at NSW Golf Club is to play golf how the game was intended to be played – at the complete mercy of Mother Nature and the golfer’s ability.
