Celebrating 125 Years

Celebrating 125 Years

As part of our celebrations of 125 years as a club, we are compiling a series of short essays about aspects of the club’s history, written by club member and historian Michael Kelly. This is the homepage for that project. Feel free to check back regularly to see what has been posted. By the end of this year (2020) this page will contain a broad overview of the club’s history. Those who are unfamiliar with our history may find it particularly useful. 

  1. Origins of the club.
  2. Women and the establishment of Wellington Golf Club. 
  3. A permanent home
  4. The evolution of the golf course.
  5. Land development
  6. Major events at Royal Wellington
  7. Socialising at the club
  8. The role of the professional
  9. Plantings and beautification
