HERVEY BAY GOLF CLUB INC HISTORY
Golf was played in Hervey Bay prior to World War 2 by the foreshores at Point Vernon but it wasn’t until 1945 that the course was relocated to our present site. Initially 9 holes only were played with the extra 9 being added in 1977. Volunteers who looked after course, the clubhouse and donated their time and efforts to raise funds to extend both the course and the clubhouse did all the work at the original site. In those early days a competition round cost 1/6 and membership was £1.10.00. A 5oz beer cost 1/3. How times have changed.
We have a 5,897 meter championship course. The fairways and greens are always lush as we now have an abundant supply of recycled water and are not dependant on natural rainfall. Competitive golf is played every day of the week as well as provision being made for those who only to partake of a social round.
The Board comprises the President, Captain, and seven Directors as voted by the membership of Hervey Bay Golf Club Inc. They are responsible for providing the strategic direction of the Club, and leading management in achieving our vision ~
