Jamberoo Golf Club – the best valued club on the coast

Not only do we have a beautiful course in great condition, easy to walk and challenging enough for any calibre of player, we also have the best valued club as well. Best valued by quite some margin.

Bob has a Dilemma

Bob was playing the 12th hole on Wednesday when his ball struck one of the many trees leaving him in a predicament.

Does he get a drop?

Membership Ball and Trophy Accounts

The Board of Directors have decided that members no longer will have to worry about losing the value in their trophy accounts after 3 months. You will have until the 31st of May each year to decide if you want to use your balance as vouchers or to have it credited to your membership account. Let the club office know your intentions.

Quite a few members already have their winnings credited to their membership account automatically. I don’t believe many clubs in the Illawarra allow you to do this. Another positive difference for Jamberoo.

You can check your balances easily by asking the shop or office staff.

Ball credits can disappear after 3 months so find out your balance and redeem them. Remember you can also use them to purchase items in the shop or as golf cart hire.

Course Returns to Prime Shape

The floods have come and gone and the course is back with a vengeance. Conditions are near perfect and on Saturday we will be playing it ‘as it lies’.

As there is some mud still around you can ‘lift, clean and exactly replace’ any mud-splattered ball in the general area of the course.

Course Re-Opens

Course Recovers From Flooding

As of Monday 17th the course is open for business.

With the improved weather we have the front nine completely in play and the back nine will be in play later in the week.

Thanks to our volunteers and green staff for working hard to get the course in a playable condition very quickly.

Shop Open for Business

The first stages of the clubhouse changes are almost complete and soon the stock will be moved back into the shop. In the meantime a fresh coat of paint is being applied thanks to the work of Bob Neilson and Rod Hodkinson.
