About the project

The Lakes Golf Club is a not-for-profit organisation and one of Australia's leading private golf clubs providing a world class golfing experience in a relaxed and friendly environment. Our mission is:
  • To provide a friendly, relaxed and inclusive golfing and social environment that will positively contribute to Members lives
  • To maintain the character of our course, including the design philosophies of Ogilvy Clayton, and provide tournament standard playing surfaces
  • To further develop a culture of excellence in all aspects of the Club's operations including governance, administration, environmental stewardship and Member service
  • To remain actively committed to our progressive leadership role in Australian golf, growing the game and enhancing our reputation as one of the leading tournament venues in the country
Our day to day activities focus on the 43,000 rounds of golf played each year by members, guests of members, interstate and international guests, and top amateur and professional golfers during tournaments. The Club has the best practice facilities of any golf club in Sydney and is proceeding with this Teaching Facility Project to provide the best teaching facilities of any golf club in Sydney. Our Teaching Facility project aims to raise funds to build a state of the art all weather teaching facility that enhances the skill level and enjoyment of all golfers of all level of proficiency. Any person using our Club's facilities has an expectation that they will be provided with quality facilities. The golf course is ranked no. 14 in Australia and the Clubhouse is a modern well presented high quality facility. We have the minimum offering re teaching facilities and understand the exceptional facilities many other top interstate Clubs currently provide. Professional golf tuition in 2014 has changed significantly over the past decade and just like our green-keeping practices and administration practices the use of technology is becoming the standard practice, not the point of differentiation it once was. Our current set-up of 'open air' teaching facilities prevents the Club from being able to provide golfers with the technology many require and restricts our teaching professionals from providing the quality of tuition we want them to provide. Please show your support and donate as your donation will ensure that we can enhance the skill level and enjoyment of all golfers whilst also assisting to encourage more people to play the game.
