Course Overview

Established

The Brisbane Golf Club was established at Chelmer in 1896 with only nine holes available for play. Requiring more land, the Club relocated in 1904 and the Yeerongpilly Course was born.

Architect

Sydney professional and the three-time Australian Open champion, Carnegie Clark, provided the original design of the course at a cost of ten pounds, eleven shillings. Since then the course has been influenced by around a dozen architects, club captains, committees and professionals including the likes of Alastair McKenzie, Wayne Grady and currently, Ross Watson. Mackenzie also designed Royal Melbourne’s West Course, Cypress Lakes at Pebble Beach and Augusta National.
