5. New South Wales Golf Club -- La Perouse, NSW, Australia
This 1928 Alister MacKenzie design occupies sacred ground for Australians, for it was at this spot -- Botany Bay, where the 5th and 6th holes converge -- in 1770 that Captain James Cook of the British Royal Navy "discovered" Australia. Ascending the fairway crest at the par-5 5th yields glorious rock-and-sea vistas as well as a sneak preview of the Cypress Point-like par-3 6th. Crimson bottlebrush trees and acres of natural bushland further enhance your ambulatory experience.
