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.

 

Rules of Etiquette

 1.    In the interest of all, players should play without delay.

2.    No player should play until the players in front are out of range.

  • PRESIDENT PETER PROBLEM SOLVES

    President Peter has returned from Canada (quality time with son Morgan), and surprised by field sizes.

     "I must say it’s great to be home, but where is everybody? Social players continue to rise however, for whatever reason, the number of members playing golf both socially and in competitions is well down."

     So Peter, Management Committee and Steve have done some tweaking to improve golfing numbers here.
