A Mesage From the President
As you are well aware the Club, members, staff and guests face testing times. The risk of spread of CoVid-19, or the Coronavirus as it is known, has forced Federal and State Governments to force closures to the business community as a whole, but also our on-premise operations, and, strict restrictions on our social interactions. In order to pass on recent communications that have previously been issued and ongoing updates please regularly visit email, facebook and the Club’s website. In these times, please stay safe, respect the restrictions that are in place and hopefully we can come out on the other side in as best a position as possible.
President, Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club

The Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club set on the beautiful Nambucca River
Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club has to be one of the most picturesque public golf courses in Australia. Its unique location on Stuart Island surrounded by the Nambucca River at Nambucca Heads makes it a magnificent setting for a game of golf. Where else can you play golf while watching dolphins swim by in the pristine river while an abundance of birdlife including pelicans, osprey and sea eagles fly overhead.
But this is not just a great location. The par 69, 18 hole layout designed by Ross Watson is both a challenge for the experienced player but enjoyable for an average golfer. It is a flat easy walk on fairways lined with she oak and paper bark trees. Our Bent Grass greens are often described as the best north of Newcastle and are the result of decades of dedicated work.
Located ten minutes off the Pacific Motorway, 30 minutes south of Coffs Harbour may we suggest you call in and take a look. You may enjoy a cold drink or lunch on the deck overlooking the river.
