Monash Country Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1950

The wonderfully natural and tranquil Monash Country Club is located on the edge of the expansive Garigal National Park (the name Garigal is taken from the Ku-ring-gai aboriginal tribe that once inhabited this area). From the large and lofty clubhouse, perched above the course, you can catch sight of the Pacific Ocean, before gently descending down into this scenic, very natural and challenging golf course.

There are quite a few elevation changes on this layout, although members have no hesitation in walking the course's immaculate and tree-lined fairways. The not overly complicated front-nine allows you to iron out any wrinkles in your game, although you'll need to keep the ball reasonably straight to stay out of the ever-present tree-line, which attractively borders each hole. The back-nine gets progressively more interesting, with greater undulations in the terrain and holes that seem to get tougher as you enter the final stretch.

As you might expect of this once exclusive and private Country Club (which now admits a certain amount of outside play), the quality of the greens and bunkering lives up to the overall excellent standard of the rest of the course. With pristine woodland all around the course, one is struck by the variety of the sometimes noisy and boisterous birdlife here, which helps throw a colourful and pleasantly tropical air to proceedings on the course.

Did you know?

Monash CC has hosted several top level tournaments, including the Australian PGA Championship (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Monash). | The Club is named after General Sir John Monash (1865-1931), one of Australia's greatest soldiers. John Monash, originally a civil engineer, became the Australian military commander in the First World War. He commanded the 4th Brigade in Egypt shortly after the outbreak of the War, leading them in the Gallipoli campaign. In 1918 the successful allied attack on Amiens led to the earlier than expected end to WW1. The attack was planned by Monash and spearheaded by the Australian and Canadian Corps. | Just visible from Monash CC is the top of the nearby Baha'i House of Worship, also known as the Baha'i Temple, which is open to the public each day (see www.bahai.org.au ).

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
