Concord Golf Club


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Concord Golf Club Est. 1899

Where2Golf says: 

Concord Golf Club: An immaculate clubhouse ringed by beautifully tended gardens, signals your arrival at one of Sydney's oldest and most prestigious golf clubs. This quintessential tree-lined parkland layout provides a stress-free golfing oasis, far removed from the city hubbub beyond.

Laid out on ground that gently slopes away from the clubhouse, the course bears the distinction of being recently renovated by Tom Doak. There is no real rough to speak of at Concord, but an array of majestic trees (with eucalyptus to the fore), good quality bunkering and excellent greens will certainly challenge your full shot-making repertoire.

The early holes follow the course perimeter, with a touch of light traffic noise in attendance early-on. As you get further into your round the outside world soon melts away, allowing Concord's abundant charms to unfold. Amongst many classic holes, the par-5 8th demands a drive up and over a ridge, followed by a descent to the green below through an ever-tightening avenue of trees; two greenside bunkers provide the final defence on this wonderfully stylish hole.

On the back-nine loop, take care at the par-4 17th, where your approach is threatened by a pond, one of only a few water hazards in play. The stylishly bunkered par-4 18th rises back up to the elegant clubhouse, where you can again admire the horticultural skills of the club's greenkeepers ( ... and gardeners).

Concord GC was originally part of the Sydney GC (later Royal Sydney), but set up on its own in 1898 when Sydney GC relinquished its course in Concord West and consolidated in the Bondi sandhills near Rose Bay. Since those early days Concord has hosted many top level competitions including the Australian PGA Championship and the Australian Women's Open (see Tournaments section >by Venue >Concord).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
