It has been placed 24th in the list after the inspection of many clubs throughout Australia by the judging group.
Members, staff and management can take much of the credit for this rating due to the continued improvements to the course under the direction of course superintendant Tim Watson and his ground crew but also due to the volunteer cash and work input of the golfing sub clubs.
A Tuross Head veteran golfers competition was in place when the inspection took place and feature in the drone video which appears on iseekgolf.com.

The Tuross Head Veteran golfers celebrated on Wednesday December 13th 2017 when 125 golfers and guests enjoyed a Christmas lunch and end of year party at the Tuross Head Country Club’s 2 Waters Bistro.
Mr. Meany fines session money collected througout the year for minor wayward actions and comments was put to good use when wine and drinks flowed freely and everyone enjoyed an excellent meal.
The event was organised by the veteran club committee working under president Ian Manton and his wife Annette and club captain Ian Miller and his wife Janette. Great table settings, good vibes and the right atmosphere all led to a fun afternoon.
Best dressed male and female golfers and best decorated carts and golf buggy awards were presented, and a raffle of 30 hampers and other prizes raised $1000.
Entertainment was provided by the Tuross Head Country Club Singers, Ian and Annette Manton, the Tuross Head Golfettes, Steve Johnston and Graham Heuston and Pat and Henry Anderson.
Entertainment was all sourced from club members and was introduced by Master of Ceremonies Michael Kermode.
Michael Birks, President of the Tuross Head Country Club, fittingly thanked everyone and remarked how fortunate we were that organisations such as the veteran golf group existed and that we live in a township such as Tuross Head.
Entertainment and Highlights of the Day
The Tuross Head Country Club Singers led by maestro Steve Johnston, meet every Monday at 7.00 pm at the club for practice sessions. They perform at many local community care facilities and sing at Moruya, Tomakin and Tuross Head Christmas Carols. They also feature at the Anzac Day Dawn Service at Memorial Gardens. New members are very welcome.
It’s Veteran Golfers Party Time
Wednesday December 13th
Now is the time to start planning for the veteran golfers event of the year. Our Christmas Party.
It is the time to let our hair down (we note some male members have made an early start) and be wined and dined and entertained by singers and dancers and raconteurs extraordinary.
If you have hidden talents make yourself known to the committee and you can perhaps achieve one of the goals of your life and perform live on the stage.Who knows doors may open?
4 Person Ambrose
A 4 person 9 hole Ambrose competition will be held before we can commence the festivities so there is a need to gather your group together and work out an attack plan, playing within the rules of golf, as much as possible.
The usual 7.45 am for 8.30 am shotgun start.
