Bingara Sporting Club has a picturesque 18-hole course with 9 greens and 18 tees located midway between Sydney and Brisbane on Fossickers Way. The course has the Gwydir River running alongside it making some holes very difficult. The well-maintained greens with kikuyu approaches and surrounds make them challenging to any level golfer. Visiting lower handicap golfers have never been able to completely master the course.
The course is flat to undulating which makes it easy to walk and well-marked teeing areas are easy to follow.
Its central location makes easy access for visitors who are very welcome seven days a week, both on the course and in the recently renovated clubhouse. The Club offers poker machines, Chinese restaurant, gym facilities, tennis and bowls.
For golfers after a game in the local competition, Bingara holds tournaments five days a week. There are nine hole chook run-on Thursdays, Ladies on Tuesdays, and a mixed comp on Saturdays. Sundays is the Men’s comp, starting at 1:00 pm.
For those looking for a social hit, the course is open seven days a week. No one around? Just leave your green fees in the honesty box at the entrance to the golf course. Don’t forget to pop your name on the envelope.
Bingara Sporting Club holds the Fossickers Way Week of Golf every September. A popular event on the Veterans Golf NSW calendar; the title is decided over three days. In addition, the coveted Cod is played over four.
Plenty of other events are held throughout the year. Ladies tournaments are held from April to December. The club’s annual Memorial Day, Barney’s Day, is on in the first week of December.
