Ellerston Golf Course

Back to the portfolio page

One of the world’s most private courses in spectacular rolling countryside in rural New South Wales.  Two-thirds of the holes are developed around a dramatic and fast-flowing stream, and the other third wanders into the beautiful upland country.


Amongst the world’s best conditioned golf courses and the most private. The privacy meant that the design was able to make full use of the wild, dramatic landscape because it was not necessary to cater for all levels of golfers as it would be on a more public course. The rolling land was also a great showcase for the MacKenzie style of bunkering.


Ranked number 5 in Australia by Australian Golf Digest Magazine, 2010


“Throughout the round the variety and beauty of the green settings, whether dramatically pushed up against the hazard or set in natural gullies or atop small ridges, is quite striking...Ellerston has some wonderful holes and is one of the most fascinating golf courses built since the Great Depression.” Planet Golf, 2007
