SYDNEY: The Home of Five Rings and 216 Great Holes.
Bonnie Doon Golf Club

No more than 10 minutes drive south of Moore Park is the Bonnie Doon Golf Club  a real slice of English heathland golf.

Legends of the game Gene Sarazen and Babe Didrickson struck the opening shots on the course in 1935. Since then most of the holes have been redesigned, refining what

has always been a great golf course. Greens were moved, mounding enhanced, holes lengthened, redirected and bunkers added.

For mine, Bonnie Doon's best hole is the 401-yard 13th. It used to play as a par-5 with a blind tee shot. The hole was shortened and the tee moved to the top of a hill, presenting the hole in all its glory. Local historians believe this hill, being the highest point in the area, was used as a landmark by Captain James Cook as he sailed into nearby Botany Bay in 1788. From the elevated tee, the hole usually plays into a prevailing northerly that adds extra metres to both the drive and the steep uphill approach to the biggest green on the course.

Anzac Parade is the south-eastern arterial road which winds its way past Moore Park and Bonnie Doon and onto the seaside suburbs or Maroubra and Little Bay home to three spectacular courses that cling to the Pacific Ocean coastline.
