CART HIRE, NEW CARTS & GPS
A new fleet of 16 new carts will arrive shortly replacing our older carts. This will bring us up to a fleet of 18 to better cater for demand. 2 of the original carts in the fleet remain.
All carts will be installed with GPS technology enhancing your experience on course. The GPS (once staff are trained) will ensure carts are driven in areas where appropriate for the conditions, pace of play can be managed and other great features will enhance your golfing experience.
As a result of the arrival of new carts and a higher rental fee charged to us – the member with medical cart hire will move from $20 for 18 holes to $25 shortly. The 9 hole hire will be $15. Members cart hire (without medical) is to remain $35 for 18 holes , $20 for 9. Visitors pay $45 for 18 holes cart hire and $25 for 9 holes.
Golfstaff will see a medical icon next to your name on the timesheet to correctly charge the correct fee. Members will not see it. If you have any queries or are charged $35 for cart hire but would like to be added to the medical member list to receive the discounted cart hire please email medical certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not on it.
Only the general manager will see the email and once the icon is ticket, the medical information is destroyed for privacy reasons. Golfshop staff are just following training to correctly charge as they see it. If you have any queries please see the general manager.
Just a reminder to all members that dogs are not allowed inside the club or course boundary (except Guide dogs). As per club by- laws. By laws are listed under policies and regulations page on the website.

Staff and member Safety
With increase playing numbers please be aware to minimise risk on course;
Ground staff have right of way- if a golfer sees a ground staff member working they must wait before playing until they are out of range or signal to hit.
We roster ground staff accordingly to minimize interference on main competition days or work early morning.
Beware of Snakes at all times
