By focusing his efforts upon three major elements - flexibility, memorability and natural beauty - course designer Robin Nelson has sculpted Macquarie Links to be a championship course that is a joy to play.
The course is very much a combination of links style golf with a heathland or 'bush' character. Native grasslands, stands of mature gum trees, and unique 'outback' site furniture provide strong Australian character. Existing and man-made creeks, lakes and subtle topographic formations all combine to create natural golf holes that ebb and flow with the natural landscape.
Macquarie Links is a Par 72 course measuring some 6,300 metres in length, but not overly long by modern standards - the course is a challenge to shot making but not a torturous test of length. Multiple tees give golfers of all standards the ability to enjoy their game with an appropriate level of challenge.
