Merewether Golf Club is proud to have been an integral part of the inner Newcastle community landscape since its foundation in 1933.

Over the years our course and clubhouse have been enjoyed by club members as well as neighbours and our extensive local community. MGC has been the scene of many stunning weddings, 21sts, corporate golf days, Pro-Ams, soccer and swimming club presentation nights, fundraising trivia nights, charity golf days, social club golf days, Toastmasters meetings, backdrops for ads, regular club competitions, casual games with friends, and a range of other innovative uses. Our friends and guests have enjoyed our clubhouse facilities with the bar and bistro providing a scenic and casual location for meals or a drink, with or without golf. However, over the years our facilities have become rundown and outdated, and we have commenced a process to update and modernise our facilities and reinvent its former glory.

This week, we are pleased to announce that we will be lodging the Site Compatibility Certificate application to the NSW Department of Planning for our clubhouse redevelopment and the Seniors Living Village in partnership with Third Age Villages. This project is an exciting venture for the club as it will allow us to maintain our long-term viability as well as creating a desperately-needed modern, functional, and beautiful clubhouse.  

To demonstrate support for this project, we are asking club members, our local residents, and the broader community to register their support on this page, so we may present this to the City of Newcastle Council to show that the community stands behind the club and Board in the redevelopment of this community infrastructure.

We want the council to know that we are keen to have a beautiful new clubhouse with facilities for the whole community, including a modern bistro, a state-of-the-art wellness centre, and a men’s shed. We want the council to know that we are looking forward to having an upgraded top-quality 18 hole golf course that will provide a much-needed green corridor through Adamstown and Merewether. We can help the environment by reducing our reliance on town water. We will also provide a desirable location for weddings and functions, with beautiful natural settings for photography.

About the Redevelopment

Merewether Golf Club & ThirdAge Villages have proposed the following:

New Clubhouse:
The new Clubhouse will be designed to celebrate the course and engage with members and their guests in ways never experienced before.

Expanding on the features of the existing clubhouse, the new design includes a beautiful contemporary bistro and outside seating that looks out over a revitalised 18th green.

New Bar & Bistro:
The redevelopment of the club not only allows us to create a clubhouse that will be the envy of all golf clubs in the region, it also allows us to create a sports bar for people to share a beer or two socially or after a round of golf. 

A Seniors Living Village:
The plans are yet to be finalised, however, the proposal includes a range of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments designed for later living with all residents required to be 'over 55’.

There is a significant lack of this style of housing in the area and this development will go a long way to helping create supply in this part of Newcastle. 

A Health & Wellness centre:
Part of the village will be designed to be a wellness centre, this will include a recreational pool, hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium and consulting rooms for allied health professionals.

The facility is designed to complement the offerings of the club and invite the community to become members and take full advantage of a holistic facility.
