Located in the beautiful wine district of the Hunter Valley, Cypress Lakes is a picturesque 6,487 metre par 72 18-hole championship golf course and is ranked among the top resort courses in Australia.
Unveiled in 1992, Cypress Lakes was designed by Steve Smyers of Florida. From the Black championship markers, the layout is a length of 6,467m par 72, but reduces to 5,520m from the men’s White tees with the ladies facing a distance of 5,216m.
Each tee and green offers stunning panoramic views of the Hunter Valley’s famous vineyards and the surrounding Brokenback mountain range.
This Championship layout boasts dramatic fairways shapes and elevation changes, 60 strategically located bunkers and generous greens that are in superb condition year round.
Significant golf course infrastructure investment by the Oaks Hotels group is quickly catapulting Cypress Lakes to the top of must play resort destinations in Australia.
Golf courses should not be designed to conform to whimsical trends of the day. Rather, they should be designed according to proven, classical principles that withstand the test of time
