The Forster Tuncurry Golf Club incorporates the Forster Golf Course and Tuncurry Golf Course.
The hidden gem on the Mid North Coast, very few players leave this course untouched by its natural beauty. The par 72 championship layout is sure to test golfers of all skill levels. Demanding from the tee the rolling couch fairways and relatively flat putting surfaces reward the player that drives the ball well from the tee.
The course has the great ability to handle rain in extended wet periods; the sand base keeps the course in perfect playing conditions whilst surrounding courses are closed for days and sometimes weeks. Well worth a game and not to be missed if you’re passing through the area.
At Tuncurry there is a fully licenced clubhouse in a unique rustic setting called “The Cottage”. It has a full wet bar, change room and shower facilities, kitchen and meeting area, a fully equipped pro shop and wonderful outdoor BBQ area where members and visitors can gather and socialise before and after a round of golf.

At 4868 metres, Par 66 for the men and Par 68 for the ladies it’s generous fairways and forgiving rough are major factors in attracting golfers out for an enjoyable experience.
