Latest Club News...

All Club News
  • On behalf of  NSW Police Golf Club (inc) I would like to thank Nelson Bay Golf Club for hosting the final stroke round of 60th Australia Police Golf Championships that was held on Thursday 9th March, 2017.

    We had over 230 players  and all enjoyed the Nelson Bay Golf course layout. Most made comment on how the Club was able to patronise our members under difficult circumstances and may I personally make a special thank you to Nelson Bay Golf Club committee for allowing me and my committee to use those facilities.

  • Both Warren and club management have been extremely helpful in ensuring all our needs are catered for right down to carts for all players on all days which is not a possibility at any other venue we attend and is extremely well received by all the guys. In addition, an excellent drinks and food cart service and even course marshalling to ensure all runs well were other terrific additions at our last Hackers. Small things that add up to increased enjoyment for all players.

    Also with the excellent accommodation option right next door, it’s a perfect set up for our guys. I cannot recommend this club highly enough for your next golf trip…large or small.

  • The heart and soul of Nelson Bay Golf Club is obviously its members and of course the wider community as well.

    I don't know many clubs who could stage a tournament of two hundred competitors just two weeks after the devastating fire which demolished their clubhouse in 2015. The staff, members and the community rallied and the tournament went ahead. The course was magnificent (as usual).

    We were originally four ladies who came to this particular tournament approximately 12 years ago and last year we had thirty eight ladies from Longreef Golf Club. What more can I say? The reason is obvious! 

  • Blind Golf NSW on behlaf of Blind Golf Australia would like to sincerely thank Nelson Bay Golf Club for allowing us to hold the 2014 ISPS HANDA Australian Blind Golf Open and World Blind Golf Championships from Sunday, 11th to Friday 16th May 2014 at your glorious Club.

    The events were a fantastic success and the 52 players from most states of Australia and many parts of the world thoroughly enjoyed the golf course, club facilities, experience and the great hospitality extended by the Club and its members.

    The 2014 ISPS HANDA Australian Blind Golf Open and World Blind Golf Championships would not have been possible or the success they were without the full support and cooperation extended to our Organising Committee over the two years leading up to the tournaments from the Club's Management as nothing was too much trouble. 

  • We were their first wedding since the opening of their new club house which had previously burnt down. Natalie and her team did an exceptional job! Great communication in weeks leading up and service from all staff on the night was second to none!
