Perched on the shores of the historic Botany Bay just outside of Sydney, this links style course with couch fairways and bent grass greens is a must play when visiting south eastern Australia. Masters champion Adam Scott shares the professional course record of 66 with several other PGA Tour members, set at the 2009 Australian Open.
Golf Magazine ranks NSW Golf Club as the No. 34 golf course in the world. Golf Digest currently ranks the NSW Golf Club as the No. 9 golf course outside the United States. It has been an industry leader in environmental management for years. This practice stems from the 18th century, when Captain James Cook sailed ashore through Botany Bay to replenish the water supply. Most of the surrounding vegetation is located within an endangered ecological community which adds to the natural beauty of this links landscape.
