Chinderah Golf Course began life as a cane farm, over the years it has developed from a small driving range to a beautiful 18 hole golf course and driving range located in the Tweed Valley region.
The course (measuring 3,373m) features 18 holes with 18 tees, hundreds of trees, shrubs & native plants providing a park-like golf links experience with 6 dams, 26 bunkers, mounds & swales, showcasing manicured fairways and contoured greens with tiff-dwarf grass featured in all greens in the summer and oversown with Poa Trivialis in the Winter.
A social competition began in 1992 with local Senior players – men & ladies (over 50’s) playing on Monday mornings, this grew expotentially to take in Thursday mornings as well, with numbers of players increasing year on year.
A new club-house was built in 1998 incorporating a pro shop, club repair area, motorised golf buggy storage, office space replacing two shipping containers previously used as the pro-shop & repair area.
With the assistance of the Federal Government, Chinderah Golf Course became the first golf course in Australia to benefit from a scheme utilising town sewerage effluent (from Kingscliff & Chinderah) enabling us to fully water all fairways, greens and the driving range on the course.
Following affiliation with Golf NSW in May 2018, Chinderah/Tweed Golfers now provides golfing events for members (aged 50 years & over) each Monday & Thursday in an official AGU competition. Visiting and holidaying golfers (with AGU or LGU handicaps and are aged 50 years of age & over, are welcome to join in the competitions. Times commence at 5.25am and generally run to 2.30pm each day.
The course par is 61 with a scratch rating of 58 and a slope rating of 70 for men and 74 for ladies. With a mix of challenging par 3’s and par 4’s, accurate drives and sharp iron shots are the keys to mastering the course. Chinderah Golf Course provides a keen challenge for accomplished players. The absence of hills makes it ideal (as a public golf course) for beginners and social players – the perfect place to learn and grow your golf game.
