Facilities & Rules

Clubhouse

Collie Golf Club's traditional and spacious clubhouse incorporates a large bar serving internal and external areas, seating for as many as we ever seem to need, and a big dance floor.

It is surrounded by well kept gardens and a barbecue area, and incorporates a shady verandah to the rear, overlooking a view of the course to the forests beyond.

The clubhouse can be hired for private functions, and is located in a perfect position with panoramic views of the 5th tee, 6th green, 9th green, 10th tee, and 18th green.

The most important aspect - bar prices are low!

Change Rooms

Collie Golf Club's separate men's and ladies' change rooms are spacious, with all facilities expected, and we believe in maintaining them in immaculate condition.

Buggy Rooms

The club has two buggy sheds. Storage charges to keep bags and buggies on the premises and out of the car boot are only $35 a year including GST.

Motorized Cart storage is available on application and subject to current occupancy.

Grounds Staff

Collie Golf Club employs full time grounds staff led by Doug Bayley to maintain the course in the best possible condition year round. 

Parking

Substantial tarmac parking is provided, with plenty of graded parking areas behind to cope with the overflow on major competition days. Bays are wide and deep.

Putting Green

A practice putting green is provided in front of the clubhouse for use by members, guests and visitors.

Driving Range

Collie's driving range is to the west of the clubhouse, and includes a practice chipping and bunker area. The facility may be used by members, guests and visitors. Bring your own practice balls (except prior to the Saturday competition), as you must pick them up yourself - good exercise, and an incentive to hit them straight!

Monday: closed
Tuesday: 2.00 to 6.00
Wednesday: closed
Thursday: 12.30 to 6.30

Dress Rules

While we try to be relatively informal, certain standards must be adhered to. The minimum standard of dress on course or in the clubhouse is a shirt with collar, dress shorts or trousers, shoes and socks. Steel sprigs are allowed, but golf shoes may not be worn in the clubhouse. Leather sandals may be worn in the clubhouse only during the summer season. No football shorts, board shorts, tee shirts, singlets or thongs are permitted on the course or in the clubhouse.

Visitors

We welcome casual visitors playing green fee rounds, for which the fee is $15 for 9 holes and $25 for 18.

The club has two golf carts available for hire at $20 for nine holes and $35 for 18.

Visitors with registered handicaps who wish to play in club competitions are also very welcome.
