The Royal Sydney Golf Club is one of the oldest golf clubs in Australia, founded in 1893. The club is located in Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour. In 1897 Queen Victoria granted the Club its ‘Royal’ prefix.
The Royal Sydney Golf Club’s Two Courses
The exclusive club features two superb golf courses: the Championship Course and the Centenary Course.
Facilities includes the18 and 9 hole courses, two golf practice areas, an indoor golf studio, 18 tennis courts, two bowling greens, two croquet lawns, two squash courts, a Fitness Centre as well as an elegant Clubhouse.
The Royal Sydney Golf Club offers a short 9 hole course. The Centenary Course was designed to utilise every golf club in the bag for the competent golfer. The undulating terrain features tight fairways and small contoured greens. Water comes into play on six of the nine holes, presenting a challenge to the golfer.
It is an ‘old-fashioned course with undulating fairways that are heavily bunkered; a tough test of golf, especially in any wind. There are no gimmicks, tricks, chasms of watery caverns.
Both the Men’s and the Women’s Australian Opens, PGA and Amateur Championships were hosted at the The Royal Sydney.
Members may sponsor a non-member to hold an event at the Club, however non-members with no connection to the Club are unable to book an event at the Club.
