Golf & Sports

As well as our premier 18-hole golf course, Killara Golf Club offers other recreational and sporting facilities including tennis, squash, lawn bowls, bridge and billiards – all in one convenient location.

Killara Golf Club offers an annual Ladies’ Beginner Golf Program for friends and family of KGC members. 

Beginners’ Golf Program

It is not necessary to have any golfing experience, just a desire to have fun and learn the fundamentals of the game of golf. 

The aim of the program is to introduce you to the many aspects of the game in a relaxed and happy atmosphere, so that by the end of the year you should feel comfortable on the course playing golf. 

The program is held on Tuesdays, commencing early February and runs through until late November each year. 

At the beginning of the program participants attend clinics with our Golf Professionals on the basic game of golf and start playing a few holes with the view to progressing to 18 holes towards the end of the program. Notes and lessons on how to play and score different competitions are also provided, as well as help and support throughout the program by some of our experienced Lady players.
