A long and proud history in the Wimmera

Come out and enjoy one of the worlds most loved sports with the delight of being able to play at one of Victoria’s top 50 PGA ranked courses right in the heart of the Wimmera.

1924

Club purchases 34 hectares in Horsham East, across the river from Hamilton Street.  Access via a swing-bridge.

1946

Property sold and one nearly double the size was purchased at Haven, situated on a sand-belt.  Original course architect, Sam Berriman, produces what’s considered one of his masterpieces. Three years of mostly volunteer labour follow, with bulldozers carving the layout from the scrub, sheep manure spread over the fairways and couch grass sown.  Trees, dominated by the native white flowering tea tree and pines, planted to break the wind.

1947

Greens and bunkers established.  

1949

Dam constructed. Reticulation system saves onerous task of carting water to the course. Members play the course for the first time. Sam Berriman’s design refined by architect Kevin Hartley and legendary green-keeper Max Ward.  

1959

Clubhouse built and club registered under the Licensing Act.  

1975

Clubhouse extended to enable catering for functions.  

2000

New state-of-the-art clubhouse built with the ability to cater for functions up to 300 people. Immediate success as weddings and other functions see the facility booked out up to 12 months ahead.  

2009

One year after it’s centenary, the club is devastated by bushfires.  Fifteen thousand trees and shrubs lost. Clubhouse, Pro Shop, machinery shed and equipment completely destroyed. The course is decimated.  

A Bright Future

With the support of golf clubs from across Australia and the State Government, the committee led staff, contractors and volunteers in the rebuilding of the club’s facilities.  

As well as the fire, the club has dealt with a ten-year drought, mice and locust plagues and a “one in 200-year” flood.  Each time the Horsham Golf Club comes back better than ever.

Today the Horsham Golf Club is in the top 50 of Australia’s best golf courses. As well as a challenging 18 hole course, it is home to a fully stocked on-site pro shop and bistro.

A course master plan prepared by course architects Crafter and Mogford has been adopted and while narrow, tree-lined fairways may be gone, in their place is a modern, world class golf course suited for average and talented golfers, alike.

Since opening, the new larger and more modern clubhouse has become the social focus for the Club and well as the wider community as a whole.

Now well into its second century of operation, the club’s future has never looked brighter.
