HMBGC can be quite busy virtually all year round, so you should always plan ahead and book a tee time. This is especially important if you’ll require a motorized golf cart for your round.
Visitor/social access to the course is generally available seven days a week. We can be quite busy though, so some days there might only be 9 hole tee times available. You should check the Golf Bookings page for an approximate schedule and then call the Golf Shop to book your preferred tee time.
Please Note: Saturday is our largest competition field, so visitor access is limited to players with a current AGU handicap, AFTER our Members have had a chance to make their bookings. Please call Thursday or Friday to check for tee-times in the Saturday Comp.
There are limited tee-times available after 2pm for social players. These can be booked 7 days in advance.
We are a bit more relaxed in the Tropical North, but we do have some basic minimum standards. Please take the time to review the dress code… and inform your playing partners… to save any embarrassment or unexpected costs on the day.
Failure to comply with this dress code will result in your being asked to leave the course.
Please note: dress regulations apply to anyone using the facility, including those not actually playing.
We also recommend you bring a hat and sunscreen and a water bottle.
Our current social golf fees and rental costs are as follows…
|18-Holes Social Golf||$49|
|9-Holes Social Golf||$29|
|Electric Cart, 18-Holes||$49|
|Electric Cart, 9-Holes||$29|

The Golf Shop also has a large selection of new golf balls, tees, gloves, drinks and snacks. Secondhand golf balls are currently in short supply and may be unavailable.
Need anything else? Just ask when you make your booking and we’ll do our best to assist.
Motorised carts and pull buggies are available for hire from the Golf Shop.
Each player in your group will require their own set of clubs to play. We have a limited number of premium Talyormade Sim2 golf sets available for hire. Booking is essential!
Please make sure you reserve any equipment you require when you make your booking, especially on weekends, because numbers are limited.
Play at a reasonable pace. If you’re falling behind or holding up the group behind you, take a break for 5 minutes and call them through.
If you’re playing with beginners or non-golfers, decide in advance to have them pick up once they’re 3-4 over par for any hole. Better still play an Ambrose format that they’ll enjoy a whole lot more!
If you have ANY doubts about being able to find your ball after a shot, hit a provisional before you move on.
Call “FORE!” loudly ANY TIME your ball is headed towards another group or onto another fairway.
If you can’t see where it’s going, call FORE! even louder… it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Repair ball pitch marks on the greens, replace divots everywhere, and always carry a sand bucket.
Rake the bunkers once you’re out. Put the rake back in the bunker, pointing towards the flag.
Motorised carts must stay outside the blue line where marked, and well clear of all tees and greens where there is no line marked.
Do treat the golf course, hire equipment and all facilities with respect.
Do treat other players on the course with courtesy and respect. Be quiet when others are nearby and playing their shots, even if they’re on a different fairway or tee.
Don’t move or talk while someone in your group is hitting the ball (or about to hit). Be aware of other players on adjacent tees and be quiet while they hit as well.
Don’t walk across the line of another player’s putt on the green. The flattened spot from your footprint can be enough to change the roll of their putt.
Don’t lay spare clubs on the green while you putt… it’s too easy for someone to step backwards on them and damage the green.
Don’t ever play when lightning is in the area. If the hooter sounds… 1 long sustained blast… stop play and take cover immediately.
Don’t hold up other players. Call faster groups through, have slower players pick up, don’t spend more than 3 minutes looking for a lost ball.
Don’t enter the water looking for your balls… we do have crocodiles in some of the dams and golf balls are replaceable.
Don’t bring alcohol onto the course… it will be confiscated and your whole group may be asked to leave.
Mostly good golf etiquette comes down to common-sense behaviour and treating our course and other players with respect. Do that and we all have a great day out.
The entire Half Moon Bay Golf Course is a licensed premise so BYO Alcohol Is NOT Permitted BY LAW.
If you bring alcohol onto the course it will be confiscated and your entire group will be asked to leave the property immediately.
No warnings, no exceptions.
As a licensed venue we are not permitted to serve intoxicated persons or allow them to remain on the premises. This includes the entire golf course, so please make sure all members of your group understand this.
If you want to come out, play some golf, have a few drinks and have a great day out, we’d love to have you.
But if you plan to get drunk, misuse our golf carts, damage our course, or upset our other players… you will be asked to leave.
No Warnings. No Refunds.
We are happy to share our facility with social players who will treat our golf course, equipment and other players with respect.
