Dog friendly golf courses - east coast Newcastle to Gladstone


We travel the east coast with our Labradoodle and we are on the look out for dog friendly golf courses.  We know that Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club allows leashed dogs on their course, Nambour GC allows leashed dogs kept in the cart only, and Macksville GC reckon they'd allow leashed dogs on course.  We are seeking details of other GC's that allow dogs on course.

If you like a challenge try Crescent Head course, take dog on a lead.

Are you members of Veteran Golfers Assn?

In May 2021 we added another dog friendly golf course to our list. We stayed in Agnes Water for some time and a couple of minutes from town is the Town of 1770 Golf Course (opposite the Agnes Water Ambulance Station). The owner / head groundsman Les is a really friendly bloke and top notch groundsman. This would have to be one of the very best presented and maintained country golf courses around and gives many of the big boys a serious run for their money. Les is quite happy for your furry friend to go around with you so long as it is on lead and doesn't feel the need to run after birds, wallabies and kangaroos. We loved our six sessions at Town of 1770 Golf Course over a couple of weeks and can't wait for our next visit.

You could probably add Yeoval Golf Club to the list. I will ask when I get back on course after the sun goes down a bit. Too hot for the summer comp out there at present.
There is a great camping spot right on the 9th fairway (9 holes and we now have 8 sand greens converted to synthetic thanks to the generous local business houses and community).
One of my travel friends and I are staying at Yass on Friday and then I am off to Tathra, play vets if I can or in a midweek comp if the fishing is a bit off, then back to Braidwood on a travel leg back home and might play the 9 holes there as well.

One tip though, do not camp right on the 9th fairway fence line, get back in the middle to back of the campground (power there too), a couple of the local big hitters slice a bit.....

My friend and I have played at Adelong and the hounds came too, but of course there was no-one else on course at the time. No sign to say dogs not allowed. I see no issues if the courses are deserted and the doggy doos are collected along the way? My friend has had more golf lessons at Royal Canberra (no dogs on course there) and I have suggested a weeks or so stay in the future at Yeoval so she can hone her game a bit more and the hounds can come too and cut loose as they please.

I reckon the Yeoval mob who are always very accommodating to visitors in the "Best Little Town in the West" would not have a problem. Particularly as the caretaker at the $20 a night for powered sites has a lovely little dog on site that has some interesting voice characteristics thrown in. Apart from the fact there are usually several dog walkers doing the rounds of the course each morning. The course up around the "Murder Hole" (unsolved murder mid 70's) is a nice walk and not many people around to enable an enjoying walk with the hounds. Mind you the perpetrator has since passed on so it is safe to negotiate the Murder Hole now, but not with a golf club in hand as it has Buckenbah Creek on the right and Sandy Creek at the back if you are wayward on the short par 4. It has claimed many a victim!!!!

I will check in the clubhouse when I return for "Golf Season". Can't see an issue as there are always local dogs having a romp there and the 4th fairway is usually dotted with horse's hoof prints after the local show in the arena. Will check and confirm the "local ruling" on accompanying hounds. The Banjo Paterson museum there might be of interest to travelers as he spent his early years growing up in Yeoval.

Good golfing !!!!!
