Nelson Bay club history

Club History

In 1960 Mr Len Randall, proprietor of the Shoal Bay Country Club Hotel opened a private golf course on a 5 acre parcel of Crown land on the fringe of the Tomaree National Park as an added attraction for patrons of the Hotel.

It was subsequently offered to the newly formed Tomaree Golf Club for 15,000 pounds in 1961. The Club has continued on for over 60 years and is now the present Nelson Bay Golf Club.

It has grown from humble beginnings of a nine hole golf course to the now a 27 hole course with a magnificent purpose built Clubhouse for golfers, social events and functions.

Its popularity as a golf course nestled within beautiful bushland, yet close by the sea is testament to the fact that we are one of the busiest golf courses in NSW.

A brief history of Nelson Bay Golf Club since its beginning over 55 years ago is outlined in the decades below:
