Exclusive Membership benefits of The Geelong Club
As Geelong Club Members, our beautiful building is offered to the public, on strict terms, for private function use—only during periods that Members do not have previously confirmed events.
During any ‘public access event’, Members will be reserved a dedicated area within the Clubhouse at all times, ensuring that if the Club is open for any reason, Members shall enjoy the full benefit of their Membership.
Members can elect to have annual subscriptions debited to a nominated bank account, allowing for a seamless & efficient method of delivering the traditional Members privilege for annual subscriptions.
The Club’ Social Calendar abounds with a range of new events, Club features and Members’ benefits—including food and beverage focused events such as the Cellar Dwellers and Bottle Clubs, guest speakers, inter-club competitions and much more.
The Social and Membership Committees continue to develop events & offerings for the Member’s benefits and often reach out to the Membership to seek input and recommendations.
Members are invited to make direct contact with the Club Supervisor who welcomes the opportunity to accommodate any specific menu requests or catering needs.
Although the Club’s official opening hours are as listed, the Clubhouse remains open to all Members from approximately 9:00 am Tuesday – Friday, by arrangement with the Club Supervisor. The Club is staffed Thursdays and Fridays.
