Bing Lee Fujitsu General Women’s NSW Open Venue

Courtesy: Oatlands Golf Club It has been an eventful 80 years since the official opening of Oatlands Golf Club in July 1931 by the Governor of NSW, Sir Philip Game. The years 1947, 1950 and 1958 were most critical; the land being nearly acquired by the Army in 1947, nearly lost after serious threat to tenure in1950, and purchased by its members in 1958, each scraping together 100 to buy the Club by debenture. The fact that this Group One Club is today owned by its members promotes a spirit of camaraderie and pride, as does the Club’s rich and colourful history. Whilst the course is not long, it is particularly challenging to any level of player and boasts some of the best par 3&aposs in the land. Accuracy rather than distance is the key to a good score on this course. To view the History of Oatlands Golf Club [Click Here].
