Golf is a great way to exercise and socialise at the same time and the Darwin Golf Club encourages women to participate in the great game of golf. Age and skill level are no barrier, and beginners and social players without a handicap are encouraged to come along to learn and improve.

The Darwin Branch of the Northern Territory Senior Women Golfers’ Association (NTSWGA) hold a nine-hole social competition every Tuesday morning for women 50 years and over.

Play finishes with a cuppa and social chit chat.
There is currently a $10.00 joining fee and a competition fee of between $6 and $8 is charged per game. Green fees may also apply.

Play commences with a shotgun start which allows for players to finish at the same time and enjoy a drink or two before prize presentations which normally conclude by 3.00pm.

If you are too old and worn out to do anything else, why not take up golf?
The Wednesday Golf Club offers an opportunity for anyone (any age) to try their “skills” on the course. Established in 1974, it is the oldest club within the parent Darwin Golf Club. So if you enjoy the humiliation golf has to offer, the Wednesday Club is for you. A $20 annual membership fee and five dollars per game will set you on on the path of frustration and surprise (but there is always the 19th hole). The nine hole competition is held between 1pm and 4pm on a Wednesday.
Enquiries can be made at the Pro Shop or just turn up on the day.
