As the closest public golf course to the Sydney CBD, Moore Park Golf has attracted some wonderful, colourful and quirky characters over the years, but all with one interest in mind – to have a go of their favourite pastime, golf.
Recently we have seen Hollywood actors, television personalities, ex-cricketers, rugby league players and music entertainers hitting off the driving range, and you will regularly spot a few other celebrities throughout the week having a swing on the course.
And of course, famous golfers…
We were recently reminded of a visit not so long ago of a renowned US golfer and the day John Daly came to play!
What we can’t report…
What we can’t report are any walk-offs, disputes or incidents that usually get bandied about in the media.
What we can report…
What we can report is that John is a delightful and charming gentleman who happens to hit the ball a long, long, long, long way!
He was a guest appearing at the Australia v New Zealand Skins Challenge that was hosted at Moore Park Golf and – it’s an obvious statement, but – he can play!
Here’s some photos of the day John Daly came to play:
Now it’s your turn…
Follow in the footsteps of John Daly, Mark Wahlberg and many others by coming to Moore Park Golf for a hit. Not only is it one of the best public golf courses in Australia, we have a huge (and recently renovated) driving range to enjoy with a great bistro and bar just a few steps away to complete the perfect day out.
And it’s not just a male sport, golf is a growing sport for many women and girls, and as can be seen on this recent episode of Sydney Weekender, it’s not just a hit, but also a giggle!
