This championship course located in the picturesque Port Stephens region of New South Wales has been seducing golfers for the past 17 years. 

Designed by James Wilcher, Pacific Dunes is all about wooded landscapes for the first nine holes and water hazards for the inward half. Whichever nine your round at Pacific Dunes begins on, you’re in for a fun round of golf highlighted by diversity.

The opportunities for reward are frequent, accompanied by a commensurate level of risk, but either way it is a great test and with the different tee locations a good measurement for every handicap. It’s easy to see why this is one of NSW’s finest public-access courses.

The bentgrass greens are maintained to the highest standard by a team of dedicated staff, while there is no better way to finish a round than with a meal in the club’s premiere eatery or a drink at the bar lounge and terrace.

Play this winter for $75 midweek or $85 on weekends (Fridays to Sundays), which includes golf and cart hire.
