Magenta Shores Golf Course began with a brilliant location teamed with the brilliant mind of Ross Watson: “I have been waiting for a site like this since i first began designing golf courses 30 odd years ago. With its rolling landscape, coastal dunes and tranquil National Park it was the ideal ‘canvas’ on which to create a truly sensational course, one which will appeal to golfers of all levels.
The thinking golfer will really enjoy Magenta Shores. Built on a deep sand base and shaped in the spirit of the famous Scottish Links courses, Magenta Shores Golf & Country Club will call golfers to use their imagination and every club in the bag.
From the back tees the course stretches to around 6,300 metres with a par of 72. Each hole has multiple tee boxes giving plenty of flexibility and will present a very stern test for the most gifted if desired, or an enjoyable game for the players of all levels. Couples this with generous fairways widths and beautifully sculpted greens with many interesting pin positions. This course is special and destined for global attention.”

Where did the name Magenta come from?
When renowned course designer Ross Watson first laid eyes on the piece of land which our magnetic course is now built upon, he said it was “the ideal ‘canvas’ on which to create a truly sensational course.”
Beautifully located on the beachfront in Magenta Shores NSW, with its rolling landscape, coastal dunes and tranquil National Park, it truly is a stunning location for a golf course. But where does the name Magenta really come from?
It turns out; it literally originates from its spectacular surroundings.
Magenta is a relatively new area to be developed for residence, with the suburb being first recorded in 1991. The name originates from two parts of its local environment – the flora and the color of the sky.
The Magenta Lillypilly, or Syzygium paniculatum, is a small sized rainforest tree with a total population of around 1,200 plants spread across a 400 km stretch of coastal NSW. The tree is listed ‘Endangered’ in the area and ‘Vulnerable’ nationally, and is currently part of a national recovery plan.
The Magenta grows bright pink, spherical or egg-shaped, edible fruit which makes delightful cordial and desserts and is also used as a natural color additive for a light sauce.
The Colour Magenta, or The Colour of Universal Harmony & Emotional Balance, is a colour that is variously defined as purplish-red.
The colour was first introduced as the colour of a new aniline dye called fuchsine, patented in 1859 by the French chemist François-Emmanuel Verguin. Its name was changed the same year to magenta, to celebrate a victory of the French and Sardinian army at the Battle of Magenta on June 4, 1859.
In spirituality, the colour magenta is one of universal harmony and emotional balance and is said to help create harmony and balance in every aspect of life; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
So you could say the name Magenta, fits our course location to a tee.
