Club History

Pittwater Golf Club Inc. is a registered private club affiliated with Golf Australia through Golf Tasmania.   Information on membership, and application forms, are available via the “Membership” link at the top of this page.

Pittwater Golf Club was founded in 1950, with the course location decided upon early in 1951.   The Club’s first AGM was held on the 9th of March 1951, with the first competition played on the 6th of June 1951.

The Club is located at Midway Point, approximately 25km southeast of Hobart, on grazing land generously made available on lease by Messrs C.J. & W.J. Reynolds, a prominent local farming family.

In 1999 former Club Treasurer Kevin Connor compiled a book on behalf of the Club, entitled “Pittwater Golf Club Inc. The first 50 years: 1950 – 2000”, which gives a very readable account of the Club’s development through those early years.

The Club features a picturesque 9 Hole, 16 Tee course overlooking Orielton Lagoon, a RAMSAR wetland of international significance.

The course is fully irrigated, using recycled water from the Penna Irrigation Scheme, enabling the course to maintain lush tees, fairways and greens all year round.

Facilities include a club room, meeting room, computerised competition registration facilities, and bar facilities operated by Club members on competition days.
