Tips for Sydneysiders.
New Brighton Golf Club
Details and review of New Brighton Golf Club. New Brighton is a 6142m, Par 72 course, located about 30minutes
drive south-west of Sydney's CBD. (Take the M5 and exit at Heathcote Road, only 2 minutes from this exit). The course
provides a fair bit of variety with some very challenging Par 5's and some shorter Par 3's which are gaurded
by water hazards. The course makes good use of water, bunkers and trees to make for a challening, picturesque
golf course which in our opinion is pretty good value.

Review of New Brighton Golf Club
New Brighton Golf Club is located in the south-western suburbs of Sydney, just off the M5. It'll take
about half an hour to get there from the centre of the city. The course itself is quite some distance from the road
so beware when driving along trying to find it, because all you'll see is a large sign and a heavily forested driveway.
The course itself is really quite gorgeous. There are two Par 3's which require a good carry over water, and two Par 5's
which dogleg twice. My personal preference is the Front 9 because of the 6th, it is one of the most maginficent Par 5's
I have played with two dog legs, and the green gaurded by a pond. I am also not a big fan of the 14th and 15th Holes because
they are fairly straight and flat holes. However the 15th runs along the George's River, meaning every shot you take
you are in danger of losing your ball. The greens on this course vary in size but in general are a medium size and are well
maintained. The fairways are all heavily lined with trees, and on a large number of holes the nearby fairway will not
come into play, which is something I personally enjoy. Water hazards dominate quite a few holes, and when they don't
there is always danger with nearby bushes. The course is well bunkered and a very decent length. We found the course
to be in very good condition when we played. The course has a few holes which are just straight holes, but these are
well outnumbered by the number of really nice challenging holes on this course. New Brighton Golf Club is in the moderate
price range, and this makes it a good value golf course, in our opinion, well worth a visit.
