Candelo Golf Course

Worth noting for future reference just in case. The sign on the right at the bottom of the hill as you continue on past the Kameruka Estate indicates the old Candelo Golf Course, where the old fashioned sand greens prove an interesting challenge to most golfers.

This course is a living history. The golf course was designed by Laurie Auchterlonie of St. Andrews, Scotland, just after the turn of the 20th century. It is, therefore, the oldest course in the area and one of the oldest in the state of NSW.

The holes are named after World War I battles commemorating the Lucas-Tooth family, which owned the Kameruka Estate and lost several family members who were killed in action.

The greens are sand, the links design is challenging and there are 12 holes, although with alternate tee placements, 18 holes can be played. The course is 5183 metres and par 67.

There is an honesty box at the course – have a look and try something very different.
