New South Wales Golf Club is often called "La Perouse" and is set amongst scrub covered sand hills and valleys that slope down to the Pacific Ocean at secluded Cruwee Bay. The course is rated No.1 in New South Wales and No.2 in Australia, it has hosted professional golf tournaments such as the PGA Championship 1996 - 1998, the ANZ Championship 2003 and the Australian Open in 2009.
This incredible layout is bounded by water on three sides and has many of the characteristics of true links golf. Occasionally mild and at the mercy of the "young guns", this sleeping giant, with its wavy fairways and small greens, needs great skill in shot making when the sea breezes blow. It is believed that golf had its origins on unique seascapes similar to this one, where the wind is the prevailing factor and the direction from which it blows making any of the eighteen holes comparatively easy or extremely difficult.
There is simply no better way for entertainment and establishing new relationships than a golf event at "La Perouse" Golf Club. The clubhouse offers a rational combination of traditional architecture and five-star facilities among which a dining room for up to 110 people, a number of relaxed lounge areas with a central bar, committee room and conference room, plus fabulous golfing areas and a fully equipped professional shop. By the way the Pro Shop staff are familiar with all aspects of the game and can help not only with lesson programs on the driving range but also on-course instruction.
