Well known for its meticulous conditioning, Kooindah Waters offers a fierce challenge to golfers of all levels. Not only will a player need to avoid water hazards on all 18 holes but Parry and Watson have also incorporated 84 fairway and greenside bunkers, some with railway sleeper walls, that as well as adding to the aesthetics, also further challenges the golfer.
Once these hazards are cleared, golfers cannot fail to be impressed by the couch fairways and superb bent greens that roll fast and true.
Magenta Shores Golf Club
Magenta Shores Golf Course began with a brilliant location teamed with the brilliant mind of Ross Watson: “I have been waiting for a site like this since I first began designing golf courses 30 odd years ago. With its rolling landscape, coastal dunes and tranquil National Park it was the ideal canvas on which to create a truly sensational course, one which will appeal to golfers of all levels”.
The thinking golfer will really enjoy Magenta Shores. Built on a deep sand base and shaped in the spirit of the famous Scottish Links courses, Magenta Shores will call golfers to use their imagination and every club in their bag.
From the back tees, the course stretches to around 6300 metres with a par of 72.

Newcastle Golf Club
Newcastle Golf Club, only a two-hour drive from Sydney, is one of the hidden gems in world golf. It has an ingredient common to many great courses; it is unique and reminds one of no other course.
In keeping with most courses designed during the golden age of golf course design, the architects left the land as they found it. Little earth was moved, save in the building up of some of the green pads especially the one at the first hole.
The dunes that continuously roll across the property aren’t massive in scale like the ones at Ballybunion or Lahinch. Rather they range from ten to thirty feet, a size that lends itself to good golf qualities. Drives that aren’t hit straight and true tend to leave the golfer with a blind or semi-blind approach shot from an awkward angle.
From the opening tee shot to the last putt, all aspects of the golfer’s game are challenged while he enjoys an uninterrupted walk through land unspoiled by man’s hand
The thoughtful golfer who keeps his ball in play off the tee and underneath the hole on his approach around Newcastle will find this one of the most satisfying exercises in course management that the game offers.
Pacific Dunes Golf Club
Pacific Dunes is a championship golf course located in Port Stephens. Fitted with world-class Bentgrass greens and Santa Ana Couch fairways, the course is maintained to an impeccable standard by a team of dedicated agronomists.
