The heritage-listed clubhouse sits on top of a hill overlooking the beach, the Derwent River estuary and Mount Wellington. The first two tees, a par-three and a short par-four, are elevated. Once off the hill the next 15 holes are a flat, easy walk with narrow, tree-lined fairways, some water hazards and bunkers with a variety of sands – not always consistent! It is best to stay out of them – a feat not easily accomplished.

The greens at Kingston Beach Golf Club are small, but without many undulations. On those that slope towards the fairway, particularly the last six holes, it is best to stay below the hole. Downhill putts can be treacherous, especially in summer when the ground is at its driest.

A mechanical inclinator assists golfers to the tee for the 18th hole – a short par-three.

There is a practice putting area and a range for irons only.

Memberships for Kingston Beach Golf Club are available, with no waiting list or joining fee. The annual fee is $849 from October to September.
