New South Wales golf vacation planned? You cannot overlook New South Wales when talking about golfing holidays. However, there are some great courses and weekend getaways.

Sydney is home to some of the best coastal golf courses in Australia. Play two of the most renowned courses in NSW and The Lakes all while staying in a luxury hotel in the heart of the city. Although the leading Sydney golf clubs are private, limited access is granted to international and interstate golfers.

Enjoy the beauty of the Hunter Valley, only two hours from Sydney and home to some stunning golf courses and beautiful wineries. North of Sydney is one of Australia’s great recreational travel regions. Located on the New South Wales’ mid-north coast, is the stunning seaside region of Port Stephens and nearby, the Hunter Valley. It is an area renowned for its tranquility, pristine waterways and natural beauty and offers a perfect fusion of golf, leisure, relaxation and seclusion. Wine tasting is a popular hobby for visitors to the region with several famous wineries located nearby.

Magenta Shores or Kooindah Waters on the Central Coast are a great weekend getaways. Only one and a half hours from Sydney and within walking distance to the beach.

Located just 90 minutes north of Sydney’s CBD, nestled between the pristine waters of the Pacific Ocean and Tuggerah Lake on the Central Coast, Magenta Shores 18-hole golf course designed by Ross Watson is a favourite amongst Magenta Shores locals and international visitors alike.

Kooindah Waters Golf Club is a championship golf course located in Wyong, on the Central Coast of NSW. Acclaimed course architect Ross Watson and former Australian Open winner Craig Parry created a golfer’s haven that has been recognised among the “Top 100 Courses in Australia” by Australian Golfing Digest magazine and named the best public golf course on the Central Coast.
