You’ve put the family and career first for a long while. Now’s your chance to enjoy the benefits of all your hard work by joining Cromer Golf Club – a Private golf club on the Northern Beaches offering a bushland oasis without an exorbitant price tag.
Joining a golf club is a carefully considered decision that lasts for many years, and while playing on a public course might seem the most cost effective option, if you’re a regular golfer you might be surprised at how the numbers stack up. See our table below comparing subscriptions and competition fees based on two rounds of golf per week.
Cromer Golf Club offers a very simple gender neutral golf membership structure with categories and access privileges detailed below. Subscription fees provides one of the most affordable gender neutral private golf club membership on the Northern Beaches.

How can Cromer Golf Club charge much less than other Private Clubs for the Full Member Subscriptions? The membership structure allows the cost of running the Club to be distributed more evenly throughout the Membership and hence the very affordable $3,675 annual member full playing subscription fee.
What price is the golf competition fee? Cromer charges $12 for singles plus combined team events. If you are considering joining a Club with say a $14 competition fee the total annual cost of your membership may be much higher than you realize. For a golfer playing twice per week the additional competition fee will add over $400 to your total annual cost of Membership. Joining a Private Club such as Cromer is very affordable even when compared to some of the public access Clubs. See our table below to compare:
|Golf Club 1||Cromer||Golf Club 3||Golf Club 4|
|Comp fees (each)||$10||$12||$13||$12|
|Comp fees (weekly)||$20||$24||$26||$24|
|Comp fees (annual)||$1,040||$1,248||$1,352||$1,248|
|Annual Subs + Fees||$5,682||$4,923||$4,231||$3,919|
|**weekly and annual comp fees are calculated based on two comp games per week|
Can I place my name on the weekend timesheets? This is a very important factor in joining a golf club. Cromer is a Private Golf Club so that you only share the course with other members – no public golfers are allowed. Our membership levels are always monitored carefully which means you can join now and comfortably place your name on the competition timesheets even on the weekends.
How much will it cost for Members to bring their friends and family to Cromer for a game of golf? We encourage Members to bring friends and family to show off the course and have a very affordable green fee of $57 for 18 holes and $32 for 9 holes.
Who is the Course Superintendent looking after the condition of the course? The course and new A1/A4 bent greens (all 18 replaced in 2011) are being nurtured by our Course Superintendent Leon Hennessy who has worked closely for a number of years with ex Augusta National (yes- “The Masters”) Superintendent Daniel Cook. As you could imagine the greens are superb and our vision is to have some of the best putting surfaces and course conditions in Sydney. Our entire course maintenance team are dedicated to creating the ultimate turf conditions possible in Sydney’s challenging climate.
Will Cromer be a better course next year than this year? The Board of Directors and Management are committed to a strategic plan based on continual improvement. We are constantly reviewing and prioritising capital expenditure to ensure it is spent in the areas where Members will see the most improvement. The Club’s focus is to constantly improve the playing surfaces which every golfer appreciates and looks forward to.
How do we source water for the golf course? A very important question as both quality and quantity of water is fundamental to high quality golf playing surfaces year round. Cromer has large water licenses in place to use both storm water and underground bore water. Storm water is our primary water source and we are very lucky to have two sources. A creek running though the golf course and another adjacent to the golf course where we can both recycle storm water from. With the Club using recycled storm water we are now helping improve the water quality in Narrabeen lagoon as this water would otherwise flow directly into the lagoon during rainfall events. Whenever our need for water is higher than our storm water capacity we can top up with underground bore water by simply turning on the underground pumps. We have two separate bores with separate pumps to draw from.
Can I use the driver on Par 4’s and Par 5’s at Cromer? This is a question we are surprisingly often asked and the answer is a definite yes! For many players the driver is the Club which is upgraded often (for keener golfers maybe too often) and we know there is nothing more satisfying than a well struck drive down the fairway. So please feel confident that after joining you will be able to – let the big dog eat, grip it and rip it, let some shaft out, light it up, give it everything on our par 4’s and 5’s.** We have one shorter par 4, the 14th hole and in early 2014 Cromer pennant player Matthew White recorded his first hole in one on this hole with his Driver. Cromer also accommodates less powerful hitters with different tee options and the new slope system will allow members the choice to play from forward tees before they play. We have everyone considered.
What is it like to visit Cromer Golf Club for the first time? Cromer Golf Club is a spectacular private golfing facility located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. As you enter the front gates and drive towards the clubhouse you will catch glimpses of the front nine as the road leads down to the car park. The Clubhouse overlooks the impeccably maintained championship 18 hole golf course which is set just beside the picturesque Narrabeen Lagoon.
Who owns the land that the golf course is situated on? Apart from a very small strip of land on our 16th hole Cromer Golf Club owns the remainder of the land the golf course is built on which means the Club House, Maintenance facility and most of the golf course is owned by the Members. The Club also owns a separate large portion of land which may be used for future development.
What Practice Facilities are available at the Club? The Club has a large practice putting green located near to the clubhouse which is regularly referred to as one of the best in Sydney. We also have a 180m driving range where you can hit your own golf balls as well as practice hitting bays near the 18th green. The best practice (and exercise) however is out on the golf course and if you play later in the afternoons Monday to Thursday, or even Saturday and Sunday, there is usually ample spare tee times.
