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.
