Royal Sydney Golf club

About Us:


Founded in 1893 The Royal Sydney Golf Club located in Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour is one of Australia’s foremost sporting and social clubs. The Golf Club features two superb golf courses; the Championship Course and the Centenary Course. To date, the Championship Course has hosted 15 Australian Opens and one Women’s Australian Open. The 2016 Emirates Australian Open, held from 17th to 20th November 2016, was won by Jordan Spieth. The Courses The Championship Course has been accurately described as follows, ‘it has always been an ‘old-fashioned’, traditional, heavily bunkered, tough test of golf, especially in any wind. There are no gimmicks, no tricks, chasms or watery caverns’. Its undulating fairways and treacherous bunkers ensure that the Championship Course is a challenge, even for the most avid golfer. The Championship Course has undergone many changes over the years, the most recent being a rebuilding of the greens which was completed in 2003. Royal Sydney also offers a short 9 hole course called the Centenary Course. It was completely rebuilt to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Club in 1997. The course was designed to utilise every golf club in the bag for the competent golfer with undulating terrain, featuring tight fairways and small contoured greens. Water comes into play on six of the nine holes, presenting a further challenge for the golfer. The Club offers 18 luxurious bedrooms for the use of members and their guests. It offers superior service to accommodation guests in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Guests can also take advantage of the Club’s extensive dining and sporting facilities whilst visiting the Club. Each bedroom features individual climate-controlled air-conditioning and flat-screen televisions with Foxtel. Eleven of our bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms. The Merion Room now also offers disabled en-suite facilities. The Club also has a ‘Family Room’ (non-ensuite) which consists of a Harbour-facing queen bed and a separate living area with a sofa, which can be converted to a bed if required. Self-service tea and coffee, light snacks and laundry facilities are available in the Bunker Room. Newspapers can be delivered to your room each morning and there is also a turn-down service available. The Kent Room is available for your comfort and relaxation during your stay. The Kent Room is a communal sitting room where guests can watch television, use the computer facilities, enjoy the open fire on a winter evening or simply relax and take in the view of the Harbour.
