Moruya Golf Club History
The Moruya Golf Club was opened in 1925
Starting out as a nine hole golf course with sand greens it was built around the Moruya Showground and Racecourse which was established in 1866.
Work began on the golf course in 1914 with the first golf being played in 1925.
In 1966 well known golf architect Al Howard redesigned the existing 9 holes and incorporated grass greens. (Howard designed Tasmania GC, Elanora, St Michael's, Bowral and many others)
During the redesign process the golf club was able to access extra land for more golf holes. Three extra holes were added to the course between 1982 and 1984, followed by a further six holes in 1988 which created the 18 hole championship course as we know it today. This work was carried out in conjunction with long term club member Jim Marsden and officialy opened on October 1st, 1988.
In more recent time the Moruya Golf Club has really showed off its class as a golf course.
In 2021 Moruya Golf Club hosted the South Coast Open, a NSW Open qualifier for $50,000. The success of this event led to the PGA Australia brining the NSW/ACT State Associate Championships to Moruya in 2021 as well.
In 2022 Moruya is locked in to Host the South Coast Open again, further showcasing the quality of the course on offer.
