Description
The Avondale golf course, founded in 1926, is set in the leafy suburb of Pymble on Sydney's north shore and is one of the most peaceful courses in the metropolitan area. There are no major roads on the course's boundaries and the feeling of tranquility is apparent from the time you enter the very understated entance.

This delightful atmosphere allows the golfer to play with very few distractions and she or he can concentrate on their game and their tussle with the course without the intrusions of outside noises.

Shorter than most championship courses, trees play a big part here and accuracy is essential. The layout starts innocently enough but gradually builds up into a toughness that makes even the finest golfer think clearly and positively. A number of memorable and challenging par 3 holes provide the basis for an enjoyable round.

The long par 5 holes provide a visual feast but the golfer still needs to concentrate on the primary taks at hand - securing a par or better! Play anywhere close to your handicap at Avondale and you'll drive away a very happy player.

Centenary Park
Centenary Park (Website)

Designed by golf professional Bill Clifford, work started on the present course in 1973 and in May 1974 the first nine holes were opened, with the second nine holes opened in October 1975.

Originally two old houses owned by the Frankston Council, were transported from their original site near Frankston Station, joined together and were the Pro-shop and Manager's residence at the course for more than 25 years.

Older residents well remember Dot and Jim Spencer who managed the Pro-shop at the old course and then at Centenary park for more than two years, before Pat and Frank Doolan took over for the next 18 years.

Since the mid 1980s, the City of Frankston has invested thousands on continual upgrading of the course and appointed a special sub-committee to recommend works.A ten year master plan in 1986 saw many improvements including a reticulation system, drainage works, dams, and upgrading and resewing of fairways.
