Last week Moore Park Golf took a step back in time – 100 years to be exact! The occasion was a Hickory Golf event to celebrate a great milestone for Centennial Parklands – a century of public golf in Moore Park.
Australian Golf Heritage Society hosted the event, which saw golfers dressed in plaid, argyle knits, and Plus-fours using 80 year old wooden golf clubs took on the golf course.
After lunch with the Minister for Sport and Recreation, the Honourable Graham Annesley MP, the 50 passionate golf enthusiasts headed out to play a nine-hole, two-ball medley Ambrose tournament and reminisce about the countless games they have played as they have watched the Moore Park Golf transform into one of the best public golf courses in Australia.
