To the north of Sydney, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is where the Hawkesbury River reaches the sea and it’s a mix of winding creeks, sheltered coves, dense woodland and mangroves.

Terrey Hills Golf & Country Club lies on the southern fringes of this fascinating landscape and in 1994, Graham Marsh designed a challenging championship golf course – the first to be constructed in the Sydney area for over twenty years – when he fashioned 18 holes from the bush.

Natural forests frame the contoured fairways and the greens feature broadbent grass to guarantee smooth putting surfaces. Greens are large with an average area of 650 square yards, allowing a multitude of hole positions.

The 7,070 yards of the course are laid out in two loops of nine, with each starting and closing close by the clubhouse. The front nine begins and ends with two long par fives – beware the creek in front of the green at the 1st hole and the deep bunkers that protect the putting surface on the 9th hole.

Many think the 193-yard, par three, 15th hole to be the best on the back nine. It has a man-made pond on the right with an enormous, 100-yard-long bunker running between the water and the green to further threaten the tee shot. Three on the card here is an excellent score.

Description: Graham Marsh designed a challenging championship golf course at Terrey Hills, the first to be constructed in the Sydney area for over twenty years... Rating: 4 out of 6 Reviews: 2

One of the better private Sydney courses, nestled out of the city limits up in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, surrounded by bushland. One of the standout features is the tower adjoining the Clubhouse, which can be seen from various points of the course. Routing is fairly back and forth at times, but also around some water. Most fairways are tree lined, but not to the point where room is restricted, allowing for some wide fairways to be hit.

I really enjoyed the course, holes 1,3,5,7,9 on the front, plenty of water and thinking required to play well, on the back the closing holes are outstanding,14 - 18 with the 17th my pick.

Great course, great staff, great fun, natural land used very well to produce a challenging layout.

Terrey Hills is a relatively new course but being built out of natural bushland it has the feel that it has been there much longer. I fell quite in love with the front nine holes when we played it mid-January 2016. They were as good a nine holes in an Australian Terrey Hills Golf Course - Photo by reviewerbushland setting as I have experienced. A little tighter and not as expansive as the great Lake Karrinyup in Perth, Western Australia but a wonderful nine holes in a beautiful Australian setting. The back nine was OK but just didn’t have the same secluded feel to it, with housing being close by on the early part of that nine holes. Holes 16, 17 and 18 were once again akin to the front 9 holes and had won me over again. The greens, fairways and bunkers were in excellent condition – at least the equal, if not better than the more highly regarded courses of New South Wales GC, The Lakes and Concord that we played during our same visit to Sydney. If you are up around the northern beaches in Sydney do yourself a favour and have a game here. It seemed to us to be an inclusive and welcoming club. As a total golf course it’s a solid 4 balls for me tending toward 5.
