The Club’s facilities include; 3 swimming pools, 2 tennis courts, 4 glass-backed squash courts, gas and wood-fired BBQ areas, function hall, 1/2 basketball court and kiosk facility.
Taylor Range Country Club boasts 3 outdoor swimming pools; a 25-metre pool, an 18-metre pool and children’s wading pool.
The 25-metre pool is solar heated to extend the swimming season by a few weeks at the start of spring into the beginning of autumn. Member families and their guests utilize this pool either for lap-swimming or just to cool off and relax.
The 18-metre pool is the original “Greenlanes” pool and it can be utilized year-round. Two gas heaters along with thermal overnight blankets ensure a minimum temperature of 27 degrees centigrade during the winter months.
The children’s wade pool is solar heated to ensure toddlers are comfortable whilst splashing around during the spring and summer months.
All 3 pools are chlorine sanitised and monitored in accordance to strict operational guidelines. This is in order to ensure maximum swimmer comfort.
Pool hours for Members and their guests are from 6am to 10pm daily.
Taylor Range has 4 glass-backed squash courts which are open from 9am to 10pm (or last booking) Monday to Thursday; and 9am to 5pm Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

There are also plenty of different avenues to play squash at Taylor Range apart from having a hit with your friend?
Every Thursday morning from 9.30am – 11.30am three squash courts are reserved for social squash. This is again free for Club Members and costs just $6.00 for non-Members to attend. Thursday morning players often bring a platter of nibbles each and relax on the function hall balcony on completion of their hit-out (this is social squash at its best).
Every Wednesday evening 2 of the squash courts are reserved for social squash, between 6pm & 8pm. Anybody can come along and play amongst each other. This is free for Taylor Range Country Club Members and costs $6.00 per session for non-Members.
At 8pm on Wednesday nights social squash continues. All players are welcome and costs are as per the earlier session.
For players that prefer a hit at the weekend we also have social squash on a Saturday afternoon 2.00pm – 4.00pm. This session has become very popular and all four squash courts are frequently required for the 2 hour duration.
Taylor Range Squash Club fixtures are run Monday, Tuesday & Thursday evenings and Friday mornings. Fixtures offer you the opportunity of playing in a graded competition against other clubs from the northside of Brisbane. These fixtures are governed by Q-Squash Ltd. Four player teams are entered at the start of each season and each fixture costs $13 per player ($10 for Taylor Range Country Club Members when playing at home).

Club Members may book a tennis court up to one week in advance. Non-Members are able to reserve a court the day before they intend to play.
The Club has progressively installed top of the range outdoor gas BBQ units. These have replaced the wood-burning alternative in order to make things as quick and easy for Members and their guests to either cook-up a few snags for a quick lunch, or provide a quality cooking plate for a large group booking.
Usually bookings of up to 4 hours duration can be made as far in advance as you like, providing an ideal location for children’s birthday parties, or family get togethers.
The Club has 4 main gas BBQ areas which are under cover and work on a pre-booked basis. Alternatively there are also a dozen wood burning BBQ’s that are available for ad hoc use outside of any fire restrictions during bush fire season.
As an extra service to Members and their guests the Club offers a variety of snack items from the on-site kiosk.
Food ranges from hot pies and sausage rolls to cake of the day. Also available are drinks (hot and cold), ice creams, and a selection of lollies as well as chips.
It is anticipated that in the not too distant future, the kiosk facility will be expanded to cater for light lunches etc.
Taylor Range has a function hall which is available for bookings by Members and non-club members alike. Functions of up to 100 people are permitted.
The Function Hall has become a popular venue for birthdays (no 18th birthday bookings permitted), anniversaries and wedding receptions. The Function Hall bookings are separate from the rest of the club facilities and people attending do not have access to the swimming pools or tennis/squash courts.
Functions are BYO as there is not a licensed bar, therefore anyone wishing to sell alcohol at their function must provide their own licence. Catering can be done by outside caterers or the hirer and there is a large kitchen adjoining the hall.
Function hall bookings can be flexible, for example a booking of two hours during an afternoon is also possible. These rates are calculated on an individual basis.
