Newcastle Golf Club


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.

Watson Demolition Newcastle City Supermoto


The foreshore of Newcastle will be transformed as the location for the Watson Demolition Newcastle City Supermoto, including the first round of the FIM Asia Supermoto Championships.

Supermoto is racing that mixes road racing and motocross on a track that consists of road and dirt sections. A supermoto motorcycle starts with a motocross bike and is modified by using road bike wheels, tyres and brakes. The name of the game is light, nimble and responsive. Acceleration and hard braking make it exciting for the spectator to watch.

Riders come from various motorcycling disciplines each with different strengths. The result is racing that is technical, fast and often unpredictable. The Watson Demolition Newcastle City Supermoto event is unique as it incorporates Wharf Road as the tarmac segment and weaves into Foreshore Park for the purpose built dirt section.

As Round One of the FIM-Asia SuperMoto Championships, the event promises a host of the best riders from around the world.
