Jan 10 Summer Cup - Stableford

In 1960 Brian Winspear sought land to establish a golf club at Bicheno.

The owners of Toxtech  Park donated the present site to establish the club. Initially Roley Ralph the owner of Toxtech Park, leased the land to the club. The club eventually gained freehold ownership of the land.

  • Alf Toogood (father of Peter) the professional coach based at Kingston golf course was hired to design the Bicheno course. Alf Toogood emigrated from Britain in 1935 to become the professional at the Kingston Beach Golf Club south of Hobart. The work undertaken was paid for by Tim K. Shadforth.
  • A grant from the Silver Sands Hotel was used as "seed funding" to assist in the establishment of the course such was Brian Winspear's desire to see a golf course developed at Bicheno.
  • Peter Trethewey a local grazier at the time, assisted considerably during this period.
  • Brian Winspear as a foundation member co-ordinated teams of volunteers to implement the course design.
  • Locals were paid to clear the land of rocks and debris.
  • The fairways were established using equipment lent by the Wardlaws from Chain of Lagoons.
  • Brian Hughes a recent arrival to the town at this time was originally from Chain of Lagoons, played a significant role in establishing the greens.
  • Over time the course was improved and a club house built by volunteer labour supported by generous donors. The club house has has been extended over the years.
  • Play began around 1967/68.
  • By 1967 the club was constituted and the first committee meeting was held. Life members Tim Wardlaw and Doug Renshaw are foundation members and attended the first committee meeting. Eric Beattie at the time was the licencee of Silver Sands Hotel was the first patron. He is the brother in-law of Brian Winspear.
  • The course was considered dry and rough until more work was undertaken especially on the 5th initiated to make it playable by Don Bulman and Bruce Turner.
  • At the initiative of Don Williams, an irrigation system was laid leading to the brilliant fairways we have today. It was to his credit we entered into the arrangement we have with Tas Water today. We are very much indebted as well to Mike and Julie Lyne from Walleroo for undertaking a drainage program in recent years enabling the course to be playable during the wet Winter period.
  • At the heart of the club has been the extremely generous volunteers and sponsers too numerous to name who have helped develop the course to what it is today so much so a paid Green Keeper was only first engaged in the early 90's.

It is due to members from the past who have had the vision to create a challenging course and importantly to develop a strong welcoming and friendly golf club. It is our challenge to keep this legacy alive into the future.

We have a fully equipped clubhouse and the course is open 7 days a week for play. The clubhouse is open with full bar facilities every week on Wednesday, Friday & Saturday; on other days there is an honour system located in the foyer for green fee payment.

During the Christmas and Easter periods the clubhouse and bar is open every day.
