Brisbane Fairways Golf Club
Our Social Golf Club has been around for over 25 years now and plays on Sunday mornings (usually every 2nd weekend, 3rd in some cases to avoid key dates – Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Easter) all around South East Queensland. We travel as far north as the Sunshine Coast and as far south as Coolangatta.
In terms of members, we have around 50 members, which results in around 30-35 players attending most games. These members vary in age from around mid 20s through to early 70s, and with handicaps ranging from single figures, right through to 36. We also have 4 female members at present, and are always happy to have more as part of the growth of our club.
It is a requirement of our club that all members have an official Golf Australia handicap, however if you do not already have one, you can still come along and we can help you to get one. All competitions are entered into Golflink, towards your handicap.
To join Brisbane Fairways, the initial membership is $149 – which includes your club shirt and life membership to Drummond Golf. Subsequent membership is $75. Our fortnightly games are broken into two categories, regular and high-end. We play 5 or 6 high end games per year which cost $85. This will generally get you a seat in a cart along with your round for the day. Sometimes this may also include lunch or lunch and a beer, which members are notified of prior to the game.
Our regular games are $55 to play and most of our members walk. We do book carts at the best rate possible for those who wish to have them, however this cost is on them.
Over the year, there are courses that we pay $55 for that you can probably book cheaper elsewhere, however the purpose behind this is to subsidise our high end games to allow us to play better courses for cheaper. We play different events throughout the year, including Matchplay, 4 Ball Best Ball, Butchers Pairs & 4 Ball Aggregate. We also have a weekend roadtrip in December for our AGM, in which we play on both the Saturday and the Sunday, with the AGM being held on the Saturday night.
Brisbane Fairways have daily prizes for that event, along with Nearest to Pin, 2nd Approach and Long Drive. We also have annual awards – Order of Merit, Club Championships, Most Improved and more. We welcome new members and visitors – come and join us for a game.
