Info

Architect: Eric Apperly and Tom Howard
Founded: 1928
Public: Members and guests only

It was 1928 when a group of like minded local golfing purists considered the sandhills fronting Gardeners Road, Kingsford, as a golf course site. The lake in the area was part of the old Sydney water supply and the championship course would be designed to make this part of the strategic design of the layout.

The Club had to also construct a public course of adjoining land to be opened simultaneously, and that’s how the current Eastlake links came about. A plan by world renown course architect Eric Apperly and Tom Howard was laid down and soon a 6,210 metre (6791 yards) layout with a par of 72 became known far and wide as an outstanding test of the game.

The course has undergone several layout changes since the original course was constructed. In 1968, the Mascot Freeway was built and closed the course. Von Hagge, Bruce Devlin’s partner, re-designed the layout. Whilst at the time this caused numerous issues for the club in later years the improved access to the Sydney CBD would result in many new members joining from all parts of Sydney.

The Lakes is one of Australia’s pre-eminent private clubs and one of the leading major tournament venues in Australia. The golf course provides our Members and their guests with a unique opportunity to play one of Australia’s most famous layouts, in a serene environment on outstandingly presented playing surfaces.
