KBGC has many paths linking tee beds and fairways, including one major unsealed path on a reasonable slope. Many of the paths are deteriorating as a result of age and wear and tear, particularly in winter months and after periods of rain. The older surfaces on some paths become slippery in rain and frost, while others develop pot-holes and water-logged.
The Club is seeking to upgrade paths through a program of resurfacing with limestone gravel to increase lifespan and resilience during adverse weather. Some paths will also be raised. This will significantly improve safety, and also enhance course aesthetics and presentation year-round.
This project will put an end to:
The project will benefit the club by making our course more attractive and player friendly, potentially attracting further membership, social and corporate rounds. It will significantly reduce the risks of slips, trips and falls on a number of the paths that are currently finished with recycled synthetic tennis court surface.

Kingston Beach Golf Club was formed in 1922. The red brick clubhouse dates back to 1834 and is listed on the National Trust Heritage Register. The club has produced many talented national and international golfers including the legendary Nettlefold and Toogood families.
The club is the only 18 hole championship course located down the Derwent River from Hobart.
We have just over 500 members ranging from 7 years of age to very "senior" members. The club provides not only member participation but public access, social and corporate rounds of golf.
The current General Committee is focusing on improving infrastructure and facilities with the aims of retaining current members and attracting new ones, developing the club's reputation as a local recreation and social facility and securing the future of the club and course.
