In simple terms, this is a levy charged by the Club to all Members in the Senior and Social Member (other than spouse – i.e, only one set issued per family) categories. This levy is designed to encourage members to utilise the Club and take advantage of our renowned hospitality offerings.

How does it work?
Your HSS can be used to purchase food and beverage, or merchandise from our club house. Your hospitality purchases will also give you points towards our loyalty rewards program. The HSS is charged at $90 / quarter (30th June, 30th September, 31st December, 30th March) and is redeemable for 6 months after the payment has been made.

How do I use my HSS? Simply come down to the Club, purchase food or beverage, come to a Club social event or deck yourself out in Club merchandise. Make sure this purchase is charged to your membership account.

Please note that if you have not spent the full amount of your House Support Levy within the period, the Club will invest the remainder into furthering the Club objectives.
Our Around the Club newsletter is sent to your email account every Wednesday and a copy is also available from our office, the bar or can be downloaded from our website.

You can also check our Club Notice Boards for updates (via Club Manager).
