Wollongong Golf Club
Established in 1897, a decade before electricity came to the town, the Club has the honour of being one of the oldest in the country.
Wollongong Golf Club is situated on a magnificent stretch of pristine coastline. The course has 5 holes adjoining the beach, with a mountain backdrop and great views of the natural landscape. Its close proximity to the city and the beach, the fantastic views along the coast and the stunning mountain backdrop, make it one of the most unique golfing experiences in NSW. Wollongong Golf Club has hosted the likes of major champions Gene Sarazen, Gary Player, Bobby Locke and Steve Elkington since the club’s inception.
The layout is very “playable” for all level of golfers. It has 4 teeing areas so provides an enjoyable round for beginners or elderly golfers yet when played off the back tees provides a challenge for those looking to test their skills.
The club has hosted many tournaments over the years, most recently the NSW P.G.A. Championships (2009 – 2011) and the Jack Newton Subaru State Age Championships (2014 – 2015).
