Golf Australia Express : GA Express 209
SOUTH WEST ROCKS COUNTRY CLUB Nestled in the idyllic seaside town of the same name, South West Rocks Country Club boasts a picturesque 18-hole golf course worthy of any player. Whether you’re off 4 or 24 you will enjoy the well designed and interesting layout. The course is a par-72 measuring 5,953 metres that winds its way around tree-lined fairways. Most of the 18 holes are straightforward, however accuracy off the tee is rewarded as the treelines can make an escape to the green difficult. The course offers a good variety of holes, for example our 15th (Fred’s Hole) is a 383-metre par-4 with a water carry for your second (or third) shot. The bentgrass greens are in fantastic shape all year round, as are the fairways. It truly is a beautiful course to play. The clubhouse offers all of the facilities you would expect, including free Wi-Fi and dining options from a quick light meal in our coffee shop to something more substantial in our award-winning Seasons Restaurant. South West Rocks is located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales at the mouth of the Macleay River, approximately one hour south of Coffs Harbour. The town has a wonderful seaside village atmosphere and is a very popular holiday destination, offering not only great sporting facilities but magnificent beaches and rich heritage with the Old Trial Bay Gaol set high on cliffs above the sea. South West Rocks also offers some of the best diving locations in the country. SOUTH WEST ROCKS COUNTRY CLUB GREEN FEES: $30.
