Wollongong courses perfect for your game!
Do lightning fast greens, flawless fairways and breathtaking scenery in every direction sound like your idea of a great day’s golf? Look no further than Russell Vale Golf Club. Depending on the which hole you’re teeing off at, you will be treated to views of the ocean, Illawarra escarpment or Broker’s Nose as your backdrop; so regardless of how many strokes it takes you to get to the 18th, there really aren’t any losers on this course. The fun doesn’t stop there though, finish your round off with an ice cold tap beer from one of the friendly staff as you continue to take in the serenity from the comfort of the clubhouse.

Located just 15 minutes south of the Wollongong CBD, take the drive out to The Grange Golf Club where you’re sure to enjoy the challenge ahead at this gently undulating course. It doesn’t matter whether you’re bringing a few golfing buddies along or you’d prefer to relax on the course by yourself, you’re going to have a blast at this par 72 championship golf course. While there are a couple of water hazards around both the front and back 9s, make sure you have plenty of balls left for the signature par 3 18th hole which is an all water carry to green and certainly separates the men from the boys. Feeling a bit hungry? You won’t even have to leave the course to indulge in a restaurant quality meal from The Grange Brasserie.

Probably the most forgiving of the three courses, Boomerang Golf Course is home to beautiful views, lush tranquil surroundings and wide well maintained fairways tailor-made for a fun day’s golf. A perfect challenge for beginners or confidence booster for your those who know how to swing a club, you’ll have to stick to the fairways and steer clear of the trees and water hazards if you want a good score on this course. Bring a few mates down and have a round of golf, then enjoy a sausage sizzle and a few drinks utilising the free barbeque facilities.
