Located on the alluvial flood plains of the Hawkesbury River some 70km northwest of Sydney near Pitt Town the Lynwood Country Club has provided a home for the relocated Kellyville Country Club members. The course itself is a 6408m par 72 of championship standard with a great variety of holes and playing strategies.

The par 3’s in particular offer four vastly different playing experiences. The 3rd at only 133m is the shortest hole and requires good club selection to an elevated green with the base of the pin hidden from view. Massive bunkers guard the front and sides of the green while anything long will require a deft flop shot and putt to save par. The hole plays in a north-westerly direction.

At 199m the 8th hole is the longest of the par 3’s, the green has an opening at the front with a large trap guarding the right side. The green surface which falls to a tough back left pin position requires a great shot to find that flag placement.

The 14th hole is a downhill 158m par 3 hole, the green is fully visible with deep bunkers catching any short shots and the challenge of finding the flag increases as it moves towards the back left pro-position.

The 17th is a very deceptive 174m hole formed on a ridge running diagonally across the line of play. Playing into the south-easterly takes a very deliberate stroke to clear the ridge and find the putting surface behind either of the sandy penalties that protect the left and right.
