Get the family out of the house and into something fun sport and activity – sure to leave with big smiles as you tuck them into bed.

Your Family Day at North Adelaide Golf Course

Sitting by the River Torrens overlooking the dam, Par 3 at North Adelaide Golf Course is a tucked-away sanctuary among the hubbub of the city that's perfect for families. 

Enjoy open spaces in the Park Lands with plenty of activities and areas to play.

"Par 3 is the perfect introduction to golf, and a beautiful day out among the trees in the Adelaide Park Lands"

– Jamie Clutterham, Golf Professional

Play FREE golf with your family

Enjoy golf out on our Par 3 Course (a shorter, quicker course than your typical golf course) absolutely FREE.

Collect your clubs and balls from the cafe (or bring your own) and head out onto the course, or spend some time with the little ones among the holes on the putting green – where there's no waiting to keep playing shot after shot.

Watch their faces light up when they sink the ball for the first time.

So if your child shows an interest in golf, or you're after their first exposure to the game, this is a great start.

Every new skill is a new opportunity for discovery and growth. In this supportive, caring and curiosity-igniting environment, kids learn, play, and, most important of all, have fun!

"The kids and I had a great day together on the Par 3. Greens are nice. Love to play this course. Thanks!"


– Simon

"Great coffee spot by the river and the parklands. Well kept. Nice views, definitely recommend"


– Jess

I love the fact that such a beautiful course and generous open parkland area is accessible to all


– Anna

"I am not a very good golfer, so the Par 3 course is great for a not-so-serious golfer like me. You can hire clubs at the Par 3 which makes playing easy."


– Bob

"Nice little par 3 course. Perfect for the amateur golfer and someone wanting a quick round"


– Alex

"Great location for learners. Well looked after and a lot of fun. I had a great morning and afternoon while enjoying the best company."


– Raj

On the day, your family will also enjoy:

• Live music from DJ Luke Henry (all day) and local Adelaide musicians Tom & Rose (12pm + 3pm)

• Free roving circus performers with jugglers, stilt walkers, and acrobats (11am, 1pm, 4pm)

• Games including bocce, giant snakes and ladders, and hopscotch

• Coffee and food vans from South Australian companies

• Fully licensed venue – so parents can grab a drink or two.

Share an experience with your child that will keep them interested and engaged (and give you time to pick up a coffee and treat from the vans!)

North Adelaide Golf Course is run by the City of Adelaide – which means that the course is open for all to enjoy. No fancy dress code, no exclusive private memberships. Just a great day out with the family.
