Important Notice

2014 Patioworld W E Alexander Open

Due to the severe inclement weather that has occurred during the month of August 2014 it is with much disappointment that Waratah Golf Club wishes to annouce that the Patioworld W E Alexander Open that was due to take place this weekend has been postponed to the weekend of the 29th/30th of November 2014.

It has been and always will be the aim of Waratah Golf Club and the Event sponsors to provide the best possible playing conditions for the event but due to the amount of rain the course has received of late we feel that it is not possible to do so at this time. Therefore in order to maintain the high course standard that is expected for this prestigious Vardon Event the tournament has been put back 3 months until the end of November 2014.

If players who are already committed to the Event are unable to participate on the 29th/30th of November please contact the club on 0249581847 (option 3) or accounts@waratahgolfclub.com.au for details on the refund of any monies paid. If committed players are able to attend and still wish to participate please also contact the club to confirm your availablity.

If new players wish to now participate at this later date the entry forms etc will be updated over the coming days to reflect the times.

Once again we regret that it was necessary to take this action but we feel that it is the best interests of all concerned.

Thank you.

Waratah Golf Club

Welcome to the website of the oldest golf club in the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie region. Our club was founded in 1901 and this year we celebrate 113 years of golf that was originally played at Dangar Park (Mayfield) and on our present course at Argenton, Lake Macquarie from 1921. We can justly claim to be one of the founding golf clubs of the Newcastle District Golf Association.

The President, Board of Directors and staff would like to issue a very warm welcome to every member, guest and visitor to Waratah Golf Club.


Our club represents the proudest traditions in golf. We have have a long and distinguished list of members who have learnt the game at Waratah Golf Club and who have gone on to play on the local, State and Australian levels. Our members have even made their presence felt on the World stage.

Our Course

Waratah Golf Club has two distinct score cards. One scorecard is for men's competitions and general play and one for ladies competitions and general play. The par (ACR) rating for men is 71 while the ladies par (ACR) rating is 72.

The index for each hole is statistically calculated, for both men and ladies scorecards, to provide a fair and equitable chance for any player in any playing division achieving a "handicapped par" result for each hole. The men's course was re-indexed from the 1st of January, 2011.


At Waratah Golf Club we offer a wide variety of membership types from full seven day members through to juniors and cadets and even just a Sunday member. All membership types carry with them the priviledges of being a member of one of the strongest clubs in the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie and Hunter regions. Membership.
