Forster-Tuncurry Golf Club, Forster Course

The twin townships of Forster and Tuncurry may be split by the enchanting Coolongolook River, reside on opposing mainland and headland, and share friendly rivalries, but the two share much in common. The area is spoilt for beaches, lakes, and inlets as well as native flora and wildlife and spectacular sunsets. The towns also share the respected Forster-Tuncurry Golf Club, Forster Course. In keeping with the area's quirks, the club is lucky enough to boast a course in both Forster and Tuncurry.

The Forster course's first six holes are set alongside the stark white sands of One Mile Beach - though that beauty comes with the challenge of a strong sea breeze. Though shorter than its companion course, all holes have a suite of challenges - upward putts, multiple bunkers, and many doglegs require a switched-on brand of golf.

Typical of a parkland course and with rolling couch fairways and flat greens, Tuncurry really rewards a good tee shot. Designed by 160 The Open Champion Kel Nagle and Michael Cooper, who grew up in the area and would go on to design some of the world's top courses, Tuncurry is seen as more challenging. Its Australian Top 100 status is no surprise. Despite that, much like Forster, the club here is unpretentious and welcoming, making it a 'best of both worlds' course.

A three-hour drive from Sydney and around half that to the regional hotspot of Newcastle, Forster-Tuncurry Golf Club, Forster Course is incredibly popular with a wide array of holidaymakers. Families eager to swim, couples looking to relax, and retirees enticed by its easy-ways have been coming to this mid-north New South Wales region for generations. Golf is considered some of the most underrated in New South Wales and appeals to any golfer. While both a mere kilometer away - and a courtesy bus available between courses - a weekend stay is a great way to play two courses each with its own atmosphere and take in an enviable part of Australia.
