Maleny Golf Club welcomes members, visitors, their families and friends to enjoy playing golf on an award-winning course set high on the range in a beautiful natural environment. The course offers all visitors a hinterland golfing experience where the air is fresh, access is easy, people are friendly and every game is memorable. Elevate your spirit!
Maleny Golf Club’s picturesque eighteen-hole course is open to members and visitors 7 days a week, with mixed competitions on Tuesday and Saturday mornings and ladies competition on Wednesday mornings.
We have separate competitions (better described as social rounds) open to everyone to experience the course and members. They are the Friday afternoon Chook Run and every second Sunday afternoon where you will play with an estimated handicap. No green fee for non members for the first three rounds of the Chook Run but a modest contribution by all toward the prizes.
Practice Range (temporarily closed)
Our practice range is temporarily closed. The new 18th hole is now the old Practice Range. A new location is being prepared. You are welcome to use the practice net, practice green and bunker.
In the interests of members and guests, please observe the following general dress standards during your visit to Maleny Golf Club. The emphasis here is about being neat and tidy in appearance.

Golf Etiquette & Behaviour on the Course
The Maleny Golf Club has adopted these guidelines on the manner in which the game of golf should be played. If they are followed, all players will gain maximum enjoyment from the game. The overriding principle is that consideration should be shown to others on the course at all times..
THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME
Players should always alert green staff nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them.
If a player plays a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone, he or she should immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such situations is “fore”.
CONSIDERATION FOR OTHER PLAYERS - NO DISTURBANCE OR DISTRACTION
Players should ensure that mobile phones and any other electronic device taken onto the course are switched to silent or off at all times on the course. On the teeing ground, a player should not tee his ball until it is his turn to play. Players should not stand close to or directly behind the ball, or directly behind the hole, when a player is about to play.

CARE OF THE COURSE
Repair of Divots, Ball-Marks and Damage by Shoes: Players should carefully repair any divot holes made by them and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball (whether or not made by the player himself). On completion of the hole by all payers in the group, damage to the putting green caused by golf shoes should be repaired.
PREVENTING UNNECESSARY DAMAGE
In order to avoid damaging the hole, players and caddies should not stand too close to the hole and should take care during the handling of the flag stick and the removal of a ball from the hole. The head of a club should not be used to remove a ball from the hole. Players should not lean on their clubs when on the putting green, particularly when removing the ball from the hole.
The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.
Motorised carts should be kept to paths where appropriate and at least 10 metres from greens, and 5 metres from tees and bunkers.
CONCLUSION - PENALTIES FOR BREACH
If a player consistently disregards these guidelines during a round or over a period of time to the detriment of others, the Match Committee may considers taking appropriate disciplinary action against the offending player.
Such action may, for example, include prohibiting play for a limited time on the course or in a certain number of competitions; or disqualification if there has been a serious breach of etiquette.
This is considered to be justifiable in terms of protecting the interests of the majority of golfers who wish to play in accordance with these guidelines.
