    Long considered among the top three courses in Australia and one of the leading courses in the world, New South Wales Golf Club offers not only an outstanding layout but, perched on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, it provides some of the most dramatic vistas in golf. The course, designed by Dr. Alistair MacKenzie, opened in 1928. The layout has undergone changes over the years, but MacKenzie's brilliant vision still shines through.
