Nestled at the top of the Blue Mountains is the beautiful Blackheath golf course. Boasting 18 holes of magnificent fairways and superb greens, the course is lined with colourful flowering trees and shrubs, including maples, azaleas, blossoms, dogwoods, silver birch and, of course, an abundance of rhododendrons.
The course is open to social players seven days a week, subject to availability. Visitors with a GA handicap can also play in Blackheath’s Club competitions which are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays for men, and on Thursdays and Saturdays for ladies.
The Blackheath Golf Club changed its name in 2017 to the Blackheath Golf & Community Club and in so doing, now provides more social activities for the non-golfing community. The Clubhouse offers golfing and social members, as well as visitors to the Club, an excellent bistro, a lounge area, a slow combustion fire, free Wi-Fi and live music most Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
The well-stocked Pro Shop is managed by the Club’s Professional, Darrin Walden who has the latest golf carts available for hire, as well as buggies and golf clubs.
