Richmond Golf Club is believed to be the oldest golf course on its original site in Australia.
The first game of golf was played in Richmond in October 1897 on a course in Hawkesbury Agricultural College paddocks.
The players were C.T. Musson, Rev I. Fergusson, W.E. Street, W.J. Neilly, W.H. Ponsonby, W.C. Cameron and W.C. Icely.
A meeting was held at the School of Arts in Richmond on Wednesday, March 15, 1899, at 4pm for the purpose of forming a golf club, whereby rules, fees, officers property etc were established.
