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, once our Members have had a chance to make their bookings.
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 on the day.
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|
|Premium Club Hire||$60|
The Golf Shop has a large selection of new & used golf balls, tees, gloves, drinks and snacks.
Need anything else? Just ask when you make your booking and we’ll do our best to assist.
Motorised carts, pull buggies and golf clubs are all available for hire from the Golf Shop. We also have a couple of premium (Titleist) sets for hire for the serious golfers!
Please make sure you reserve any additional 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.
Keep motorised carts well away from greens (stay outside the blue line where marked) and stay off the tees as well.
Do treat the golf course, equipment and facilities with respect.
Do treat other players on the course with courtesy and respect.
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… 3 short blasts or 1 long one… 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 cheap.
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 gold 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 premises so BYO Alcohol Is NOT Permitted.
If you bring alcohol onto the course it will be confiscated and your entire group may 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, we’d love to have you.
But if you get drunk, misuse our golf carts, damage our course, or upset our other players… you will be asked to leave.
We are happy to share our facility with social players who will treat our golf course, equipment and other players with respect.
