Tomago

On the banks of the north arm of the Hunter River, just north of Newcastle, Tomago is in a country where fishing and seafood - and especially prawns - dominate menus and the minds of many holidaymakers. Tomago is right next door to the extensive Kooragang Nature Reserve which skirts the shores of Fullerton Cove and is a favoured place for bushwalking, picnicking and barbecuing. Tomago is also just a short, scenic drive from the beautiful aquatic paradise of Port Stephens, increasingly significant as a desirable tourist destination. It is also the perfect base for a day excursion into the Hunter Valley where you can do the fulsome rounds of vineyards and wineries, horse studs and upmarket eateries. And, of course, the delightful city of Newcastle - NSW"s second largest city - is just a 30-minutes or so drive to the south-east. This great, historic city, is already much recovered from the earthquake which ravaged it in 1989 and the social upheaval caused by the closing of the BHP steelworks, which threw hundreds of people out of work. Tourism is the big push now for this city by the sea.

Located at the mouth of the Hunter River, two hour's drive from Sydney, Newcastle (formerly known as the Stockton Course) is one of only two courses in NSW given international recognition by the panel of experts rating the World's Top 100 Courses.

A true championship course of 6200 metres (6780 yards), it is based on undulating sand dunes like those of the great historic links of Great Britain and Ireland.

However, instead of fairways lined by gorse and heather, Newcastle is carved out of a forest of Eucalypts and angophoras abounding in native flora and fauna, including kookaburras, bearded dragons and kangaroos, making it a delightful as well as a challenging course to play.

Facilities include a full-length practice fairway, large chipping and putting greens, fully serviced Pro Shop, bar and catering.
