The Branxton Golf Club Co-Op Ltd has come a long way since it was first established in 1921.’The Ultimate Nine’ has challenged golfing greats such as Billy DUNK, Ian STANLEY, Peter LONARD, Nathan GREEN, Andre STOLTZ and many more. Until tighter economic conditions caused the withdrawal, the signature event of the year had been the XSTRATA Coal LPGA Pro-AM. Branxton has been most fortunate to see regular fields of national and international golfers compete on the course over the years. Amongst the winners were Laura DAVIES, Sarah KEMP, Tamara JOHNS & Rachael BAILEY. Several of our members have been with the club for over 50 years, while our juniors are making their marks in today’s golfing scene

Branxton Golf Course is a well maintained par 70, 9 hole course. Alternate tee positions are provided for most holes for an 18 hole game of 5547 metres. The course features two par5’s, 4 par 4’s and 3 par 3’s each with their own challenges. Additional Tees are provided for ladies competition.

It is compulsory to carry a sand bucket with you while playing
please make sure you take one and use it!

You should also always have a divot tool on hand when you’re on the
putting greens
If you see a divot or pitch mark please repair it, even if you didn’t do it!

Members Programs & Results

Juniors

Branxton Junior Golf clinics run every Tuesday during daylight saving (October-April). We meet at 4:15pm ready to start by 4:30pm, with children from 6 to 18 are welcome to come along and join in.

We have a group of volunteers who take the children through the basic swings in golf putting, chipping and full swing. Rules and etiquette are also discussed during each session. Each session lasts about 20-25 minutes and the clinics finish no later than 6 o’clock.

For the more experienced golfers we also offer holes to play during the clinic times to improve their course management and shot making skills.

We love donations, particularly pre-loved golf balls. If you have any please give them to our Professional and he will ensure their safe delivery to the junior golfers.

Please consider golf for your children. It is a lifelong sport and a great ways to make friends and stay healthy.
