The Camberwell Golf Club was founded in 1979 and has operated out of the Freeway Golf Course since its inception. The Club is delighted to be returning to Freeway after its temporary closure for redevelopment and believes that this opens an exciting new chapter in the Club’s history.
The Club conducts competitions every Monday (mixed event), Wednesday (ladies), Saturday (men’s) and Thursday (men’s). Monthly medal rounds are held the first Monday of the month and there are numerous special events held throughout the year, including the President’s Trophy and the Club Championships. The Club also fields two teams which compete in the Victorian Golf League’s Pennant Competitions giving team members the opportunity to play competitive golf at various courses in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
The Club welcomes golfers of all abilities and competitions are graded to ensure that all members can actively participate.
The Club is affiliated with the Victorian Golf League and Golf Australia. Members of the Club receive an official handicap which enables them to play in competitions anywhere in Australia.
The Club’s rooms at Freeway Golf Course are licensed and offer members the opportunity to relax with a refreshing beverage after the game.
The Harp Golf Club was established by a diverse group of interested golfers in 1983 in order to provide an opportunity for social golf played not only at its home course but also at other premier public golf courses on Sunday mornings.
The club is a member of the VGL and can provide an official golfing handicap for those new to golf, along with golf link membership.
The club welcomes both men and women who enjoy the challenge and the camaraderie offered by a social golf club. Playing groups which include both men and women are drawn randomly each week so that all members have an opportunity to play with each other; this also has the benefit of allowing new members to meet and get to know existing members within a short period of time.
Following our home games, we have lunch in the club rooms at the course prior to the Presidents update of any relevant matters and the Captain’s presentation of prizes. A few laughs can always be guaranteed at the 19th!
The club runs A, B & C grade competitions and welcomes golfers of any level. Many of our current members were new to the game of golf when joining the club and have progressed through to higher grades as their handicaps have improved.
The Harp Golf Club has enjoyed a great relationship with Freeway golf course management over a number of years, benefitting from an easy and friendly interaction with the Pro shop which facilitates a great golfing experience.
Whether you are an experienced golfer or a learner wishing to develop your skills, we encourage you to try us out. We look forward to hearing from you.
