Welcome to Horizons Golf Resort



PAR 72


Port Stephens’ most famous golfing destination, Horizons Golf Resort is a spectacular 18-hole course like no other. Located in Salamander Bay, it has played a pivotal role in popularising golf in the Port Stephens area since opening in 1992.

With a bunch of awards and recognitions tucked under its belt such as 2020/21 Australian Golf Digest Top 100, 2019/20 GOLF Course Guide Top 100, Callaway Top 30 Favourite Australian Courses and Port Stephens Most Beautiful Course (GOLF Course Guide) for 2 years running – it is no surprise Horizons continues to draw the attention of golfers around the country.

Horizons has played host to prestigious tournaments such as the NSW Men’s Open and the European Tour co-sanctioned 2004 ANZ Championship.

So why is it so good? Horizons is loved for its challenge and scenic beauty. Every hole on this picturesque course presents a unique golfing challenge with well positioned bunkers, expansive lakes and pristine waterways. Hole 17, a marvellous 153m par three, holds a stunning world ranking being featured in the book “1001 golf holes you should play before you die”. This majestic golf course covers almost 68 hectares, with 7.5km of cart paths, 96 bunkers, well-conditioned couch fairways and manicured bent grass greens rated with the best in the country.

The abundance of wildlife at Horizons has golfers talking with koalas, kangaroos, echidnas and black swans in the backdrop of pictures shared across social media. Where else would play stop to let a koala cross the greens and fairways!

Featured events at Horizons include the Newcastle District Horizons Cup, Ladies Gala Day, Valentines Cup, Ladies Beginner Golf Program, Junior Clinics and an amateur Mens Program (starting soon!). The club supports a raft of charity events and fundraising for organisations such as The Real Futures Foundation, Brain Cancer and Camp Quality. Horizons has just been appointed host course for the 2018 Australian Veteran Golf Union National Championships; and it is exciting to see new comps and tournaments continuously added to the calendar.


Horizons has a wide and diversified membership structure. It is worth checking out the very popular Country and White Gold memberships with low joining fees, reduced green fees and access to visitor rates for up to 3 friends per round.

Boasting an incomparable world-class layout, it’s no surprise that Horizons was recently voted in the top 30 Australian favourite courses by Australia’s golfing fraternity; listed in the top 100 and awarded Port Stephens Most Beautiful Course by 2018 GOLF Course Guide. Horizons is a must-play for any golfer and there’s no time like the present. Experience Horizons today.
