Member Obligations

It's a privilege to be welcomed as a member of Nambour Golf Club. Along with the privilege comes some obligations, mainly to maintain good order and to make sure my behaviours do not prohibit other members from enjoying their time on our course or in the clubhouse.

Some of these obligations are regulated by the Government, others are simply good social and golfing practice - read on!

Smoking Regulation Relating to Clubhouse and Course

Members and visitors are required to abide by the Government Smoking Regulations relating to the clubhouse and out on the course.  Notices are placed around the clubhouse for further detials.

Obligation of Membership

A pleasurable day of golf depends a great deal on the consideration and courtesy extended by Club Members to each other.  This attitude of co-operation should extend to Members' conduct on the course, in the clubhouse and surrounding course.  When followed, the Rules of Etiquette assist everyone's enjoyment of this our great game of golf.
