Research into golf history in Australia is a continuous activity at AGHS. This section is specifically dedicated to the latest and or most relevant research in this area.
There will also be a collection of stories dealing in topics which have received specific attention and research efforts.
Below is an interactive timeline depicting both verified events dealing in golf history and external events which lend historical perspective to the research.
Sub-sections in this area of the website deal with
- the importance and role of using primary sources for golf research
- the known and verified first playing of golf in Australia,
- the apparent truth surrounding early golf in Tasmania, and
- stories of early golf in each state in Australia
The Australian Golf Heritage Society welcomes continued dialog on these areas from anyone able to provide primary source evidence of golfing activities which show differences to the ones contained on this website. Should anyone have information they wish to share, they should contact the history sub-committee – see contacts page.
