The 18 hole championship course offers you pristine Santa Ana couch fairways and quality bent grass greens which are protected by well-placed bunkers. The course is set in beautiful bushland surrounds with grand views of the Brindabella Ranges making the Federal Golf Club a very special place. The Club has a proud professional golfing history having played host to several tournaments including the 1982 NSW PGA Championship won by Frank Nobilo, the 1987 U-Bix Classic won by Peter Senior, while Greg Norman played an exhibition round in 1979. In more recent times, Federal hosted the 2014 Interstate Championships.
The course also features the annual Federal Amateur Open Championship, a world amateur golf ranking event that continues to attract the country’s brightest amateur talents. In 2005, Jason Day finished runner up to Andrew Martin. In 2008, Victor Dubuisson also finished as a runner up to Matt Jager. An event for juniors accompanies the main tournament and attracts players of similar caliber, some of them barely into their teens.
The golf course is complemented by a welcoming clubhouse with a comprehensive range of hospitality services. Federal is considered Canberra’s best kept secret when considering wedding venue destinations with an events team to oversee all elements of corporate golf, private functions and business seminars.
When planning your social group’s next golfing trip, a round at the Federal Golf Club in Canberra is a must.
