The Castle Hill Country Club is set in the leafy suburb of Baulkham Hills, north-west of the Sydney CBD. The club was founded in 1951 on a nine-hole course designed by Eric Apperly, which was extended to 18 holes the very next year. The golf course was a prominent tournament host throughout the 1980s and 90s, and experienced considerable change in the years between 1992 and 2006 when a masterplan by the company Newton, Grant & Spencer was implemented.
Far from Sydney’s best track, Castle Hill is popular nonetheless with local golfers and noted for its abundant bunkering, narrow tree-lined kikuyu fairways and slick bentgrass greens. The course is generally kept in very good condition. You know you’ve played good golf when you score well here.
