About Us

Sapphire Coast Turf Club is located on a picturesque 300 acre site on Sapphire Coast Drive at Kalaru, between Merimbula and Bega and Tathra. It is one of the newest and most modern country racecourses in NSW with great spectator facilities. Patrons can enjoy an unobstructed view of the racing action from most parts of the course including the Members, Reserve and Function Centre and from the large, banked lawn areas.

We hold twelve race meetings during the season with jockeys and trainers coming from all over south eastern NSW and East Gippsland to compete.

Our new facilities include a Function Centre which is perfect for weddings as well as race day functions. The course offers visitors and members a variety of services including

  • TAB
  • Local and Interstate Bookmakers
  • Food and beverage services
  • Free buses to and from the course from major local centres
  • Picnic and family friendly areas

There are plenty of good reasons to go racing so why not visit Sapphire Coast Turf Club soon.

Annual Report   View Our Strategic Plan

“It could not have been a more perfect day at the races held at Sapphire Coast Turf Club last Sunday. The weather turned on its best, the horses were fast and lean and the track was in tip-top condition.” Eden Magnet – August 1st 2019

“Beautiful green lush track with plenty of tables and chairs set out for everyone to use. They had a bar open and also serving food, however would be good to pack a picnic yourself, however the food on offer was plentiful.” Trip Advisor March 2019

“I can more than recommend a day out at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club. Check the website for free buses to and from the course. Plenty of room, good facilities for a country track.” Trip Advisor December 2018
