The Sapphire Coast is a wonderful golfing destination. There are five Championship Golf Courses within a 30min - 75 min drive, Tura Beach, Pambula -Merimbula, Eden, Bega and Bermagui. As Golf Professionals at Tura Beach we are a little bit bias.
Tura Beach is a regular in Australia’s top 100 public access golf courses. The beautiful 18-hole championship layout is a must-play for both serious and leisure golfers.The course weaves its way down to the beach and back again through mature eucalyptus forest with undulating and challenging terrain. It is Par 73 with a blue course slope rating of 144 and a white course slope of 135. The layout offers spectacular views from tees and greens over the Pacific Ocean and every hole provide unique challenges for players of all levels. It is one of Australia’s truly great non-metropolitan golf courses.
The 18-hole course was opened in 1982 by its designers Mike Woolveridge and five times British Open winner Peter Thomson. It was the first residential golf course in NSW and has been a regular host for Men’s and Ladies Pro-am events, Legends tour events, an annual interstate elite young golfer’s championships and regular district and regional championships. On the South Coast it has become the Player’s Choice.
