Message of Welcome from the Women’s President

As the current President of the Women’s Committee, I would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who is considering joining us at Federal. Our members are a friendly group of women of all ages who enjoy playing golf regularly in a convivial, relaxed environment, on a course that can challenge beginners and more experienced golfers alike.  Our weekly competition day is held on Tuesday where around 60-70 players regularly compete in Stableford, Par, Stroke or Fourball events followed by lunch and presentation of prizes in the clubhouse. Of course women also can play in the Professional’s medley competitions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well.

We support new players to obtain their handicap and learn the basics and etiquette of golf through our popular SWinG (Supporting Women in Golf) program which is held on Mondays. We also hold 9 hole competitions on all golfing days for those who are time poor or are not quite ready to tackle 18 holes.

Informal social activities also form an important part of our club life and we hold fun events throughout the year.

So if you are an experienced golfer or a beginner I look forward to meeting and welcoming you to our lovely friendly club so that you too can also enjoy our beautiful golf course.

Jan Curren

President of the Women’s Committee


As you have read this far, you are obviously keen on golf. As the current Women’s Captain, I have included for you some more detailed information about Women’s golf at Federal.

We pride ourselves on being a very friendly, welcoming club where new members soon feel at home.  Whether you are a serious golfer, a golfer who enjoys the game and the social interactions involved, or a beginning golfer, you will find like minded, welcoming women at Federal.

Currently the ‘Women’s only’ competition is played on Tuesdays with 60 to 70 women in the field. We have a varied program with a good mix of stroke, stableford, par and team games. The Friday and Sunday competitions are medley competitions when approximately 30-40 women play. The Saturday group is usually smaller but growing. Several mixed competitions are also played throughout the year.

Federal women participate in a range of yearly club competitions as well as District, State and Golf Australia events. We enter teams in all the District Pennant competitions and play regular interclub matches with 4 other GolfNSW clubs. Many of our women members also travel and play together at other clubs.

Our 9-hole membership provides a fabulous option for members; who are new to golf, as a stepping stone for women who have taken advantage of our Supporting Women in Golf (SWinG) group, or those who prefer the shorter, less time consuming game. There are 9-hole competitions available to women on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

I strongly encourage anyone thinking of joining a golf club in Canberra or taking up golf, to come and play a few rounds at Federal or join the (SWinG) group on Mondays.

Captain of the Women’s Committee
