Nelson Bay Golf Club is located near the CBD of Nelson Bay and stunning waterways of Port Stephens just 40 minutes north of Newcastle and 2.5hrs north of Sydney. It is an impressive 27 hole golf course on 175 acres of challenging tree lined fairways. It is an idyllic setting and home to kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, native birds and the occasional goanna.
The course is maintained to an extremely high standard to showcase its beauty and challenging layout. The variable tee positions and undulating holes will test the keenest of golfers.
With demanding par 3’s, daring par 4’s and long par 5’s that can out drive the strongest of “grip it & rippers”; the 22nd is particularly challenging at 535m. The serene lakes and deceiving bunkers make the 13th and 14th holes pretty to watch but can be a punishment if not navigated well. Our most picturesque hole, the 18th is surrounded by blooming Christmas bush in the summer months and if there is a hole that could make anyone’s day with a hole in one it would be the 20th. It’s a hold your breath tee shot straight down a tree lined hill to a green at the base of it.
With no traffic noise, the only distractions to your day will be the occasional bird call or native audience.
