Located tantalisingly close to Short Point Beach, between Short Point and Tura Head, the 18-hole layout at Tura Beach Country Club is the centrepiece of an impressive AJ Jennings residential development – the first purpose-built integrated golf course and housing project in Australia – which was designed by Peter Thomson and Mike Wolveridge in the early 1980s.

Peter Thomson’s own words go a long way to offering the best course description:

“Part of the Tura Beach golf course bears a striking resemblance to the great classical seaside courses of Britain, while other parts of the course take in the almost unbelievable beauty of the Australian forest area. The end resemblance is something quite special.

The first nine holes take us down to the beach, where the great Blue Pacific rolls with a roar and spray. Here we can take in its breath taking views before tackling the rest of the course as it rises steadily from the marshland back to the starting point.

The second nine holes take on a tour of the tall forest, with its sound of birds and scent of eucalyptus. These nine holes will remind world travellers of great inland venues of the United States of America, such as Pinehurst and Augusta National.

Altogether the whole course is likened to a world tour of golf. The challenge is un-surmounting, the beauty outstanding, the reward satisfying. To play golf at Tura Beach is for golfers a memorable experience.”
