Townsville Golf Club - Queensland Australia

Established in 1893, the Townsville Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Queensland as well as being the fourth oldest golf club in Australia. The Club has been situated at three different localities in Townsville. From 1893 to 1921 at Kissing Point, 1921 to 1924 at Aitkenvale and our present Rosslea site since 18th April 1924.

In earlier times such clubs, including ours, were regarded as the somewhat exclusive domain of prominent legal, business, medical and service personnel.

It wasn't long before our membership of men and women was more reflective of all walks of Townsville life. Certainly, that is the case today.

Whether you are considering joining as a full or social member, the Townsville Golf Club has something for everyone. From the seasoned golfer on a low handicap, to those who like a day out with friends, The Townsville Golf Club is one of the most pleasant courses in North Queensland.

The first stage of the course redevelopment was completed in 2016 and Stage two was completed in 2020. The new clubhouse precinct has commenced construction and is estimated for completion in late 2022 which will include a brand new driving range.


The course is relatively flat with wide and fully reticulated fairways, very large undulating greens, hundred year old rain trees lining many of the fairways, and seasonal blooming, colourful trees. 


While the Townsville Golf Club has a proud history and commitment to the traditions of the game, its excellent facilities are there for the current and future enjoyment of our wonderful sport.

16/12/21: CLUB UPDATE - COVID 19 REQUIREMENTS


As of 5am Friday, 17 December 2021, the Queensland Government, via a Public Health Direction (PHD) have directed the golf club to make entry changes to the club for members, guests, and staff.  The golf club is required to follow this public health direction by law.

All staff and volunteers registered to work at the club are required to be vaccinated as per this direction and also as a precaution for patrons. This also supports the TGC WHS policy. (A vaccinated person is someone that has received 2 x doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine or has a medical contraindication)

Please see below changes that will take place at the club as per the Public Health Direction coming into force, 5am Friday 17 December 2021.

  • Unvaccinated people can play golf, including associated activities i.e. golf course practice facilities.
  • Unvaccinated people can play golf in the same group as fully vaccinated people.
  • Unvaccinated people can share a golf cart with a vaccinated golfer. Private cart owners have the rights of invitation to share their cart with vaccinated or unvaccinated golfers. The two cart per group policy remains current. All other cart requests need to be approved by management.
  • Unvaccinated people can use the drinks cart service.
  • Unvaccinated people can enter and use Proshop services. QLD check in App must be used.
  • Unvaccinated people can purchase take away food and drink to consume on the golf course and practice facilities. They cannot eat and drink in the Proshop or the club areas.
  • Unvaccinated people are asked to leave the club upon completion of their round of golf. No loitering will be permitted.
  • Unvaccinated people can enter the premises if they are ordering or collecting takeaways. QLD check in App must be used.
  • Unvaccinated people will not be allowed entry to the upstairs bar area. All patrons in the bar area must show proof of vaccination to staff upon entry and check in using the QLD check in App. The internal stairs entry will be closed until further notice. There will be no density restrictions in this area.

  • All patrons, staff, volunteers, and contractors must use the QLD check in App when entering the club, regardless of vaccination status. Paper identification and status is allowed if patrons don't have a smart device.

The QLD check in App is essential to contact tracing and members are asked to have the latest update on the mobile devices and the COVID-19 digital certificate linked to the App. If patrons have a medical contraindication this will appear on the QLD check in App.

The club understands this is an important time for the safety and health of all patrons at the golf club and request that members support staff as they enact these changes made by the Queensland Government, PHD.

I will update further if new information or direction is to be actioned.

Happy & Healthy Golfing,

Mitch Bligh

General Manager
