Thornleigh Golf Centre, located in Sydney’s north, is one of the leading golf facilities in Australia with two levels of Golf Driving Ranges.

The centre was opened in July 2012.  The golf driving range facility has been designed by golfers for golfers and has everything you need to improve your game whether you’re a single marker or a beginner just starting out.

Importantly, the range is orientated East – West so that when you’re hitting the ball in the afternoon the sun is behind you.  There is nothing worse than hitting into the sun on a hot day! All of our hitting bays are undercover and fully weather protected. 20 of our tees on the lower level are fully automated and have proven to be very popular. Our 15,000 square metres of landing area is synthetically turfed and fully contoured with raised target greens. The contouring ensures the majority of balls return automatically to our hopper room. We pride ourselves on maintaining our Fibrebuilt mats and range balls are in excellent condition.

The Centre is also home to our golf academy. We have a team of qualified PGA golf professionals giving lessons every day of the week. You can ring and book a lesson or just book online.

Our team of golf professionals is led by Steven Aisbett and includes Allan May, Ian Passwell, Jason Wood, Barry Morgan, Grant Kenny, Tristan Morey and Belinda Diamond. We run a wide range of golf clinics and golf programs for golfers of all levels and ages as well as private lessons. Our passion is to introduce the game of golf to young people and we have close to 100 kids enrolled in this school term’s junior golf clinics!

Our two eighteen hole mini golf courses – Palms and Billabong have proven very popular with people of all ages. A mini golf birthday party is a great idea and we have a range of kids birthday party options available to choose from, both catered and self catered.

Our golf retail shop is fully stocked with the latest golf equipment from all the leading suppliers including Callaway, Mizuno, Ping, Titleist, Nike and Srixon. All of the major golf companies conduct regular demo days, check out the latest demo days.

The Bunker Café is a great place to relax and enjoy a coffee and sandwich after a lesson, or while your kids are playing mini golf. It’s proving very popular with local community groups and mother groups.

See what our valued customers have to say!

    5 star rating Fun afternoon out Made the trip to Thornleigh to test iut the mini golf which is touted as the best in Sydney. Was super impressed with the price $20 pp for 36 holes, we couldn't believe the great value for money! The course was great, loved the water falls and the straight forwardness of the course. Would recommend! Worth the 50 min drive for us

    5 star rating Such a cute mini golf course! My boyfriend and I headed here this week after realising that one we initially planned to go to had closed. But when we got there we were so happy because it was such a nice mini golf course with lots of really pretty fountains and plants. The staff were very friendly and the cafe was really good too! Can’t wait to visit again soon ☺️

    5 star rating Great value for serious (or not) golfers I had a great lesson with the pro who immediately added 20 metres to my drives. The expensive swing tracking equipment (Trackman) was great - tons better than others I have seen which are indoors only. You can actually see the ball fly rather than hitting into a net. There was no hard sell for new equipment - though they had plenty to choose from if I needed it.

    Bonuses too:
    The best iced coffee I’ve ever had. I requested one as unhealthy as possible and they carried out my request to the letter; Ice cream and cream galore.
    I’ll be back with my granddaughter for the putt putt. Currently here during school holidays and there is lots of screaming and laughing happening.

    3 star rating Price a well set out and fun facility with areas from kids to pros. only problem is the price which makes it so you cannot afford to go regularly. Staff are very helpful and considerate and cafe is full of good food and drinks.

    5 star rating Fantastic Mini Golf Family fun day was a hit when we rolled up here. They have two well maintained courses to choose from 18 or 36 holes (we did the 18) holes were challenging without being too hard for the kids (or adults)

    The water features are nice and it was very clean. We loved the little 1st, 2nd, 3rd platform at the beginning, makes for nice photos at the end.

    Perfect for families, my only suggestion would be that it was a hot day and some umbrellas or shade sails would have been welcomed.
