Endless fun awaits
Moore Park Golf Club opened its doors to the Sydney public in 1913, becoming the first public access golf course in New South Wales in the process.
And while other courses around the country and indeed throughout the world have ensured only the highest brass play the sport, Moore Park has ensured that golf remains an accessible experience for all in the local and wider community.
More importantly, it's open to players of all abilities and has a wide range of facilities, but one stands out more than the others. And that's the all-weather, state-of-the-art driving range that you simply cannot miss on your way into the venue.
The colourful area represents the ideal spot to practice your skills before heading onto the stunning 18 hole course just seconds away, with a putting green and chipping practice area also on offer should you need to work on that area of your game.
But if you're looking to hone those basic skills, as a beginner or indeed as a serious golfer, look no further than the hugely entertaining, high-quality driving range at Moore Park. The top-of-the-range turf is second to none and comes with the added bonus of simulated sand and water hazards, not to mention the huge television screen to allow you to keep up with the sport going on around the world.
It's relaxed, enjoyable and thoroughly pleasing, and even offers stunning views of the Sydney skyline. But if you're wanting more of a lively and entertaining evening, the venue also plays host to team building nights, Christmas celebrations or simply just organised get-togethers, all of which come as fully catered packages.
The golf club is located right in the heart of the Moore Park and Centennial Parklands precinct, just minutes away from the city's CBD. You'd be forgiven for mistaking this 60 bay range for the real thing, so get down and hit some golf balls now!
