Newcastle Golf Club has been included in The Rolex WORLD’S TOP 1000 GOLF COURSES.

Newcastle Golf Club has been announced as the venue for the next three NSW Open Golf Championships  in the same week as being included in the first edition of THE ROLEX TOP 1000 GOLF COURSES IN THE WORLD.

This is exciting news for the Hunter Region. The last time the event was held at the Newcastle club was in 1972 when Newcastle member Owen Beldham won the event.

2008 winner Aaron Townsend regularly plays rounds on the course when not competing on the One Asia Tour rates it among his favourite courses.

“This is a great classic golf course and it will be great for a tournament,” Townsend said.

All members of affiliated golf clubs are invited to visit the club a play a round.

The course is in outstanding condition and will only get better as the warmer months approach and the benefits of the new state of the art Rainbird irrigation system are realised.
