History

Today’s Byron Bay Golf Club owes its status as a golf course worth visiting, to the inspired choice of the founding committee, the support and efforts of members, the community and local businesses and industries, as it evolved from a 7 hole course to the current 18.

In October 1957

Keen golfing enthusiasts of Byron Bay made the initial moves to establish a golf course. After investigating a number of sites, a dairy farm on Broken Head Road was settled on. The farm had undulating hills, was well grassed, covered 193 acres, had an income flow from a quarry and leased acreage and a farmhouse that had potential as a clubhouse.

The first working bee was held on 24 October 1957

When the tasks of removing old fencing and barbed wire, logs and stone began. Temporary greens were pegged out, Victa household mowers were pressed into action and fairways and greens began to emerge. Also, the Sunday family working bees became a regular event.

The 9 hole course evolved

Keen members with carpentry skills started work on the old farmhouse. By April 1958 all was ready and the official opening was held on 20 April. 100 golfers participated in a 27 hole event. The ‘Associates’, in spite of a tiny kitchen space did the catering, providing an impressive morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

Thoughts also turned to constructing a second 9 holes. Once again with plenty of voluntary labour and local support, 4 more holes were constructed and opened in 1980. Holes 15 to 18 were then constructed and on 6 March 1983, Mr Lionel Barnett, the then NSWGU President, officially opened the 18 hole Par 72 course.

As the years passed

Included fairways were refined and re-grassed, and permanent greens established. The tree plantings began. By 1974 thoughts turned to the construction of a new clubhouse. This was opened on 18 January 1975 on the current clubhouse site.

In the ensuing years the associates continued their fundraising and impressive catering, dams were built, tees and greens were re-modelled and the golf club facilities and clubhouse expanded. The trees thrived and Byron Bay golf course became a real challenge.
