Club History

Golf is thought to have started in Kiama around 1903. The Shoalhaven Telegraph reported on 15 July 1903 that “Kiama can now claim a golf club”. It goes on to say that “The club has acted wisely in securing the services of a professional player, who visited Kiama the other day and laid out a 9 hole link, covering a mile, and which he says can be made into one of the best grounds in the state.” This original course was located on Chapman point and behind Kendall’s Beach. For the full club history Click here.
