|Catalina Country Club was founded in 1956 by
That figure has swollen to some 1200 playing members and 5700 social members in 2001.
This is an indication of the popularity of the Country Club and the facilities, which it now boasts.
Golf at Catalina Country Club started with a 5 hole sand green course and was transformed into a
9 hole sand green course by late 1957.
At this time it was decided to purchase the rented land that the course was situated on from
L. J. Hooker Ltd.
In September of 1961, the first 9-hole grass green course was laid out and opened for play at Catalina Country Club.
It was to be another 6 years, almost to the day, before the next 9-hole grass green course was added.
|In August 1970, the new Club House was opened, and the golfing complex began to take shape very satisfactorily. |
Catalina Country Club, never a Club for resting on their laurels, decided to extend the course to a
27-hole grass green layout to allow members to play at their leisure and to facilitate the influx of increasing visitor traffic.
The third 9-hole grass green course was opened for play in September 1990.
Despite the heavy visitor traffic and frequent members play, the fairways and greens at Catalina Country Club are some of the finest to be found anywhere in New South Wales.
This is great tribute to the excellent ground staff, who maintains this golfing oasis.
