Dear Joy Readers
This one is close to all of our hearts at the Joy Project. The three of us love golf and even love playing together more. I am sure when we started learning to play golf together it started the little spark that we now call the Joy Project. Anyway I digress back to the golf clubs. It is impossible to choose only three as Brisbane is surrounded by fabulous clubs not to mention the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. So we will try to give you a few to get you started.
There are quite a few 9 hole courses around that are great if you are starting out or haven’t played for a while and think 9 is enough. In the Western Suburbs there is Jindalee and Corinda. Corinda is a fabulous little course that also has an 18 hole pitch and putt course and the Corinda course is part of the Oxley Driving Range Complex. The Oxley driving range also has lots of options for golf lessons. Our kids have been to lessons there on a Saturday morning and the Joy ladies have also had lessons there. Allan and Peter are the pros and are fabulous teachers. So if you are keen for lessons that are very reasonably priced give them a call.
Click this link that will list all the public courses in Brisbane for you and lists whether they are 9 or 18 holes.
Some of the 18 hole courses we have enjoyed playing on include Karana downs which is a public course, St Lucia which has an amazing view of the golf course where you can sit an enjoy an amazing meal in the hundred acre bar after your round and is fact owned by the Brisbane City Council as well as Victoria Park and are public courses, Oxley Golf Club, Gailes and McLeod which is a course where the members are ladies only. Oxley and McLeod also offer junior programs for the kids. Jindalee has a junior development squad but it is still undecided if it will be going ahead this year, so check with the club if your kids are interested. Also Victoria park have a great deal in any of the school holidays kids play for free.
You can play socially at any of the public courses, but if you are wanting to play in any of the clubs competitions which run on a Saturday you will need to be a member and most courses have reciprocal rights for members of other clubs.
Now if you are wanting a weekend away with some golf included then there are some amazing resort courses around where you can stay and Play.
to name just a few
Don’t forget there are plenty of sites where you can get great deals for a round of golf so keep an eye out on
