Did you know?

One might expect Brisbane Golf Club to have been granted a "Royal" prefix, especially as Royal Queensland Golf Club (also located in Brisbane) was founded in 1920, some 23 years after Brisbane GC. Apparently, in 1900, when Brisbane GC suggested the possibility of Royal status, the then Colonial Secretary of Queensland refused to recommend the granting of the "Royal" prefix on the basis that the club was not a national or charitable association.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
