The Crescent Head Country Club has an amazing and very egalitarian golf course. It is spectacular as Pebble Beach in the USA but is also entirely different to any 'glamour' course in the world. It is set in the middle of town and no-one minds if you wander across the course to get to the beach, just give way to the Golfers. It's only 6 holes and a little bit ram shackled but in in a lovely unpretentious way.
I met a local lady who was having a hit while her Alsatian dog followed her around the course, not many golf clubs would allow this.
The path to Little Nobby Headland (and the jump off point for surfing) winds around a hole and tee but everyone is friendly and they seem to recognise that everyone has a right to their own form of leisure, active or passive, young or old, rich or poor, man or beast.
