Bonville Golf Resort’s strikingly beautiful championship golf course is available to in house guests on every day of the week and  social golfers on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Staying onsite is the best way to experience all Bonville has to offer.

Located just 10 minutes from Coffs Harbour Airport that welcomes services from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, Bonville has been a sanctuary for golfers for close to 30 years, a place of wonderment blissfully detached from the stresses of daily life.

It has been a haven for golfing and corporate groups looking for a single location that can deliver spectacular golf, award-winning dining and onsite accommodation that provides both comfort and functionality, the gentle stroll from the front door to the first tee one of the purest ways to prepare for a round of golf.

Named in honour of the towering gums that frame Bonville’s 18 individual masterpieces, the Flooded Gums Restaurant is much more than you would expect from golf course dining, twice awarded a prestigious Chef’s Hat by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and recipient of the Award of Excellence in Wine Spectator magazine’s Wine List of the Year Awards seven years in succession. But first and foremost Bonville is a golf resort and the course itself has established a special place in the hearts of all who have played it.

Regularly referred to as the closest thing Australia has to the famed Augusta National, Bonville’s beauty belies a strength that has tested the very best. 

It served as the launching pad for Stephanie Kyriacou to burst onto the professional scene with an eight-shot win at the Geoff King Motors Australian Ladies Classic in February.

Bonville is also the golfing home of many of Australia’s greatest sportsmen and women as well as famous entertainers .

The opening hole is the perfect example of the scenery serving as a distraction from the challenge ahead while the par-4 second has become iconic in its own right for the exacting tee shot into a valley of eucalypts and the precision required to find the elevated green.

Each hole boasts a ‘wow’ moment all of its own and will leave you thinking about how you might play the hole differently a second time . This is particularly the case for the par-5 18th which requires a well-struck tee shot, which  opens up the possibility of reaching the green in two or the conservative approach which leaves a knee knocking third shot over water to the tiered green.

Whichever way you decide to play it, it’s all the more reason to book an extra night at Bonville and play to your heart’s content.
