Newcastle Golf Course is built on Sand Dunes and this becomes obvious as the fairways and up and down making for an enjoyable round of golf. The course is in superb condition and the fairways are nice firm sand-based surfaces. The design of some of the par 4’s on the front 9 can only be described as ingeneous.
The beauty of this course is how each hole is in its own natural ampitheatre completely surrounded by the native flora & fauna. Visit Newcastle Golf Course yourself for a fantastic golfing experience.
