You only need to sign in at the golf club to obtain temporary membership (at no charge) – to be able to eat at the café, which is set right beside Fisherman’s Beach at Collaroy. The view is magnificent, the food excellent and the service is good. Wine is available by the glass and the food is reasonably priced. It’s preferable to book, as it becomes quite busy. Parking is available nearby at no cost to residents with a Northern Beaches Council sticker, although there is also some street parking.
