Established in 1893, the Townsville Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Queensland as well as being the fourth oldest golf club in Australia.
The club has been situated at three different locations in Townsville but has been on its current site at Rosslea since April 18, 1924.
In earlier times such clubs, including Townsville, were regarded as the somewhat exclusive domain of prominent legal, business, medical and service personnel.
It wasn't long before its membership of men and women was more reflective of all walks of Townsville life. Certainly, that is the case today.
Whether you are considering joining as a full or social member, the Townsville Golf Club has something for everyone. From the seasoned golfer on a low handicap, to those who like a day out with friends, The Townsville Golf Club is one of the most pleasant courses in North Queensland.
The course, which has recently been redeveloped, is relatively flat with wide and fully reticulated fairways, very large undulating greens, 100-year-old rain trees lining many of the fairways, and seasonal blooming, colourful trees.
While the club has a proud history and commitment to the traditions of the game, its excellent facilities are there for the current and future enjoyment of our wonderful sport.
The club now has a rolling membership, giving you the ability to start your membership at any month.
There are eight categories of membership available from the seven-day Diamond Membership through to student, cadet, junior and social memberships. Diamond Membership costs $1,449 a year (six-month and monthly payments are available), which provides unlimited access to the course. Three-month trial Diamond Memberships are available from $369* (*conditions apply).
