Sapphire Coast’s huge week of golf

Sapphire Coast’s huge week of golf

The Sapphire Coast has carved out a reputation as one of the Australia’s favourite golfing destinations. 

Come October, hundreds of golfers from around the country will converge on the Sapphire Coast to experience why this region is regarded as a golfer’s paradise. 

For more than 40-years, the annual Sapphire Coast Week of Golf event has become the focal point on the golfing calendar for the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club and for the region. 

The Pambula Merimbula Golf Course comes to life during the third week in October as more than 500 golfers take to the beautiful 27-hole course. 

This year’s event will run from Saturday October 16 to Sunday October 24. 

Highly regarded for its friendly atmosphere and professional organisation the tournament has encouraged many return visits from golfers, some having participated for more than 30 years. 

The 2021 Week of Golf comprises multiple days of women’s, men’s and mixed competitions. The week concludes with the Pambula Merimbula Men’s Open Championship on the final Saturday and Sunday.

The tournament format now has open time sheets so that men, women or couples can play together.  Prizes are awarded separately for men’s, women’s and mixed competitions.

There are individual and team events to play in. Take your pick or play them all. Come as a group or come by yourself and we will find you a partner for the team events.

Described by the influential Inside Golf magazine as 'the finest tournament of its type in Australia', the competition annually attracts around 500-600 entrants from every state and territory. 

Pambula Merimbula Golf Club is a highlight destination for golfers and visitors to the Sapphire Coast.

The club hosts more than 50,000 rounds of golf each year, with approximately 30,000 of these being visitors. Pambula Merimbula is one of the most popular golf courses in regional NSW.

The facilities include 27 beautifully manicured golf holes cut through natural bushland. The modern Clubhouse provides commanding views over the course toward the pristine Merimbula Lakes and picturesque Merimbula township beyond.

The natural environment boasts an abundance of native wildlife providing an outstanding golfing experience for everybody, including the inexperienced social golfer. The course is an easy walk, or hire.
