From the snow-capped mountains to the undulating Monaro plains, the Cooma Golf Course is the perfect setting to combine recreation and relaxation, while taking in some of the region’s most scenic vistas.
Located only five kilometres from Cooma, just off the Snowy Mountains Highway, the 18-hole course is one of the finest in regional NSW.
With bent greens and excellent fairways, the course caters for the experienced golfer and those who only dust off the clubs a few times each year.
Whether there is snow on the ground, or it is a warm summer’s day, the course is playable all year round.
Cooma Golf Club’s volunteer promotions officer, Donna Smith, said visitors are always welcomed with all ages and abilities catered for.
“We love receiving visitors at the golf club. You can enjoy the amazing views while playing nine or 18 holes of golf with friends and family,” Donna said.
“The course is in excellent condition thanks to the hard work of the club’s committee and greenkeeper. Golfers will enjoy the mix of par 3 holes, reachable par 4s and challenging par 5s.
“The club is run by a very dedicated volunteer board. Our paid green keeper does an excellent job keeping the course in great shape considering the tough climate of the Monaro.
The club is open seven days a week from dawn to dusk. Outside of competition play on Saturday and Wednesday mornings, visitors are normally able to secure a tee off time to their choosing.
Not only are visitors treated to stunning views and first-class golf, a round only costs $20. Whether it’s nine or 18 holes, $20 will have you on the course. Carts and buggys are available by contacting the club ahead of your arrival.
In the last few years, Ms Smith said the club has focussed on boosting its junior and female numbers.
‘We have a great junior program on weekends. A pro from Canberra comes down regularly to hold workshops and run lessons,” Ms Smith said.
“Women are always encouraged to come and play. There’s an excellent ladies’ competition held at the club you can join.
For regular visitors to the region, Ms Smith believes a Cooma Golf Club membership is a must.
“Our golf course offers excellent value for money. We have affordable membership fees, green fees and equipment hire,” Ms Smith said.
