Established in 1931 and originally a sand green course, through the efforts of members over the years, it now boasts 18 holes of beautiful grass greens and fairways. In 1980 2 bores were sunk and the front nine fairways reticulated. Then in 2001 the front nine greens were planted with saltene grass, following along in 2003 with the back nine being reticulated and greens planted. The reticulation was upgraded in 2009 and the infrastructure put in place to accept treated waste water from the Health Dept. As of April 2011 we have been using treated water (50%) with our bore water and we are now seeing the benefit of the nutrient rich water.  This is one of the few remaining golf courses that is still voluntarily maintained by its members, although we now have a Green Keeper on staff.
