The Northcote Golf Club was formed in 1963 to play on the
newly constructed Northcote Municipal Golf Links on Normanby
Ave, Thornbury. The course was designed by the
respected course designer Sam Berriman and officially opened
by the Mayor of Northcote Cr. F.J. Ford JP on December 15th,
1962. An exhibition match with some top amateurs of
the time celebrated the opening, including Doug Bachli, 1948
Australian Amateur Champion and 1954 British Amateur
Champion, and Tom Crow, 1961 Australian Amateur Champion.
The Clubhouse was built on the present site and opened by
the appropriately named mayor of Northcote Cr. Caddy, on the
10th December 1967. The Clubhouse was extended to its
current size in 1985 and provides a modern facility for its
members. The Club plays competition every Saturday morning
beginning at 6.30 a.m. or at first light after this time.
Guests with an official Australian handicap are welcome to
play in any Saturday competition - please phone 9484 6961 as
bookings are necessary to play with the Club.
