How to Belong?

Application Lodgement

Applicants must be proposed and seconded by existing members of the Club, with both the proposer and seconder having served at least one year as a member of the Club.

Those applicants that may not know any existing members should make inquiries with the General Manager.

Applications can be submitted by email, post or submitted by person to Newcastle Golf Club.

Application Exhibited

Once an application is received by the Club, the name of the applicant together with category of membership being applied for, suburb of residence, proposer and seconder is to be dated and listed on the Club’s official noticeboard for a period of not less than 1 week.

Interview Process

After the applicant has been listed on the Club noticeboard for 1 week, an interview is scheduled with the applicant and conducted by a Director of the Club and accompanied by the General Manager. The interview process is important as it helps shape the future culture of the Club by setting the tone and expectations of membership at Newcastle Golf Club. It also provides the applicant the opportunity to ask any questions they may have in respect to membership.

Election Process

After the interview has been completed, the application is formally presented at the subsequent Board meeting for election by the Board. It is recommended that applicants have their application submitted at least 14 days prior to the date of the monthly Board meeting (noting that the Board generally meet in the last week of each month), to prevent any delays.
