Interest Groups​

The Hunters Hill Club membership comprises a wide spectrum of interests which are well catered for by regular club functions and activities as well as local outside interest groups.

The following are various small group activities offered by the club.

As Probus Club members we pride ourselves in welcoming our new members and sharing our interests.

Dog Walking

This is a popular exercise/social activity requiring only mobility and a dog. During or after the walk, a refreshment stop will be on the plan to be advised by the Activity Leader.

You have no dog? That is ok, you are still welcome to join in and enjoy the social aspect and exercise this group offers.

The group meets, currently on a monthly basis. This may be changed to a more frequent basis at a later time, subject to demand and popularity of this activity. If you are interested, please contact Peter or Judy and express your interest and they will keep you informed about future walks.

Golf

Do you play golf or used to play golf, but haven’t played for a while? Why not join our Club Golf Group. We play the game for fun, exercise and relaxation and all Probus club members are welcome.

We usually play 9 holes once a fortnight (to be reviewed) and we usually play on courses in the surrounding local area of Hunters Hill such Lane Cove, Chatswood, North Ryde and Massey Park.

Players need to bring or hire their own equipment with the cost expected to be around $18-$22.

Scenic Roaming

An opportunity to gather together with members and friends who like to roam, that is to walk, explore, discover and investigate things that interest us along the way. On the list is always the botanic gar-dens, Balmain, Barangaroo, Watsons Bay and some of the other fabulous places near and around our harbour.

Scenic Roaming will happen on the fourth Thursday morning of each month, and some members and friends like to have lunch at a scenic spot or café before returning home.

Typically we will travel by ferry.

We encourage fellow roamers to make suggestions for the coming month(s).
