We play at a variety of golf courses including Gordon, Warrringah, Lane Cove, North Turramurra, Wakehurst and Cammeray. Our "tee off" is generally about 8:00am in summer and 8:30 - 9:30am in the cooler months. We usually play 18 holes but some prefer to play only 9.
We always have a great game and often share hospitality over a drink and light lunch over the 19th hole.

SAILING on the HARBOUR Monthly, We miss the nasty days in Winter
We are fortunate that Ross Bruwel welcomes a number of members and their partners for a sail on the harbour during the warmer months on his yacht "Renada". She can be boarded at Middle Harbour Yacht Club at 10:30am on the sailing day. Be sure to contact Ross well before the day so he is aware of the numbers. Around noon a suitable anchoring spot is chosen. This can vary from spots like Manly, Quarantine, Clifton Gardens or Vaucluse Bay. Lunches are a memorable occasion, bring nibbles, your lunch and a choice of drinks. Tea and coffee are available on board. You should wear soft soled boat-type shoes, bring sunscreen and a broad rimmed hat and always bring a warm top and windcheater.
