There are positive changes ahead for Lynwood Country Club, now that it has officially merged with Castle Hill RSL.

“This move will secure the future of Lynwood as a golf course and social club,” explains Lynwood General Manager Greg Edwards. “We’ll be able to use Castle Hill RSL’s strengths, including its marketing expertise and membership base, to ensure we retain the high quality of our golf course and club facilities.”

Lynwood Country Club is recognised as having one of the most magnificent driving ranges in the region. The links-style 6,400 metre 72 par layout takes advantage of the many natural features, including undulations, wetlands and natural rough. It was designed by Graham Papworth, President of the Australian Golf Course Architects Association.

“This amalgamation will protect our members, because we can be more financially sustainable,” says Greg, who has certainly been busy since taking leadership of the club in March. “We will have ongoing funding for course maintenance, and support for the Golfing Match Committee, Junior Golf and Golfing Pennant Teams.”

Some changes are already visible – including new golf carts and new greens rollers, and a review is underway to ensure the course layout is still optimal after six years of use.

For members, it also means they get the best of both worlds – membership of the Lynwood Country Club, and membership of the Castle Hill RSL with its brand new restaurant and entertainment facilities.

Greg says his vision for the Lynwood Country Club would see it being recognised as a vibrant entertainment and sporting precinct – a central hub within the community.

So if you’ve been thinking about joining Lynwood Country Club, there has never been a better time!
