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 eleven 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.
