Shortland Waters Golf Club
Shortland Waters Golf Club an iconic favourite on the golfing landscape, steep in history, and with a visionary future. In 1921 the Waratah Golf Club moved from Mayfield to it’s present site at Cockle Creek. Broken Hill Property (BHP) took over the vacated course to provide physical and social recreation for their staff, then moved the course to its current Vale Street Shortland location in 1935 where it became the Steelworks Golf Club. When BHP closed steelmaking in Newcastle in 1999 the course and club were purchased by the membership. The facility was renamed Shortland Waters Golf Club and today enjoys a
reputation as one of Newcastle and the Hunter’s favourite courses.
Only 10 minutes from Newcastle’s CBD and just 1 ½ hours from Sydney, Shortland Waters is surrounded
by vibrant wetland ecosystems bursting with nature, and offers a wonderful golfing experience
for members and visitors.
