In recent years the club has transformed in multiple ways to become one of the city’s best value and most respected golf courses. As one writer in the Australian Golf Writers Association wrote, “Eastlake is Sydney’s hidden treasure”.
Designed on two narrow strips of land characterised by sandy soil, wetlands and flat sections mixed with undulations, the course sidles past its more vaunted golf neighbours in an inconspicuous fashion. Moderate at 5,812 metres Eastlake’s par 72 layout hides some of its distance in elevation changes where you have to think if taking the “big dog” out of the bag is the best option. The golf club has been host to the Australian Golf Writers championships 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as many other notable events including the Australian Junior Championships and qualifying venue for the NSW Open.
