Castle Hill Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1950

Castle Hill Country Club: This excellent 18-hole parkland layout comprises four loops of holes that radiate out, down and then back up again to the impressive modern clubhouse. Although the terrain slopes away from the clubhouse, its not too onerous to walk, and the course itself should not create overly raised stress levels (even if the par-3 2nd does carry the name - Beauty & Terror !). The good-width fairways are pleasantly tree-lined with a variety of gum trees (eucalyptus) and firs, but rarely do they have you feeling "crowded in" from the tee - this is a course where you can exercise your driver - although its not needed on every par-4 or par-5. Several "in play" water hazards, quite deep greenside bunkering, and the large and slopey greens are likely to present the greatest threats to your scorecard and require some careful course management at times. The back-nine starts off in a more garden-like and ornamental setting, which also signals that water will play a bigger role as you thread your way through the closing stretches. Overall a very pleasant and busy location for a golf outing in Sydney's north-west suburbs.
