We are celebrating 120 Years and you are invited!

In Celebration of Flinders Golf Club – 120 Years of Stunning Coastal Golf 1903 – 2023

In this our 120th anniversary we can look back on the progress made since its humble beginnings.

The course began as 4 holes carved out of the coastal scrub by visiting telegraphic workers(many of whom were Scots).

Jam jars were used for the holes. Then, by chance, David Maxwell (also a Scot) came to Flinders on a business mission and was captivated by the landscape and the potential for a fully fledged golf course.

Within a very few years David & his friend from Royal Melbourne GC, James Barrett, had created an18 hole course.
