Amazing views at The Tura Beach Country Club
Tura Beach Country Club is referred to as “the club with the million dollar views”.
A marvelous setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean is why.
This superb 18-hole layout has a reputation of being ‘the golfers’ golf course’ and will in time become one of the great courses of New South Wales. The course itself is tough but not unfair. Large greens (some tiered) and stiff winds — a crucial factor on any seaside course — add to the difficulty.
It becomes obvious that designer Peter Thomson’s love of links type courses influenced many of the holes here.
If a real golfing challenge is what you want, look no further than Tura Beach.
Peter Thomson and Mike Wolveridge, one of Australia’s most respected golf course design partnerships, were given a magnificent piece of land with which to ply their trade.
The result of their labour was the Tura Beach Golf Course, a course of championship standard, measuring 6,018 metres, boasting a par of 73.
Each nine has its own special set of challenges, with the links style front nine and its many water hazards complimented by the hills and tall trees on the back nine. The standouts are the par 3’s, probably as challenging a group of short holes as you will encounter anywhere!
Tura hosts the Bega Cheese Pro Am each year and this tournament has been voted the best in regional NSW for the last 2 years.
Tura also offers members and visitors the added facilities of magnificent bowling greens and two synthetic tennis courts.
Throw in the beach, located alongside the 4th fairway, and you have the ultimate holiday destination.
Club Sapphire Tura is located five kilometres north of Merimbula along Sapphire Coast Drive.
With an interest for everyone, the Club offers patrons facilities such as Keno, TAB, SKY Racing, regular live entertainment, a courtesy bus and a restaurant with “million dollar views” over the golf course to complement the best food and service in the region.
