The Nudgee College Golf Course dates from 1989 when a staff member, Jack Wagner, realised the need for further recreational facilities for students. A survey at the time indicated golf would be a popular choice and the devised course originally comprised three par 4s and three par 3s.
In 1990 the College ground staff saw the potential for the development of a nine hole layout and work began on a design prepared by the green keeper of the day. Old Boys, College families and the College’s Activities Department all contributed to the project with sponsorship to offset the cost of construction. That layout was completed in 1992 and consisted of six par 4s and three par 3s.
The golf course proved popular and, with permission of the then Principal, it was decided to form a separate Golf Club. Membership was originally restricted to students, student families, staff and people with a connection to the College. Today the Club welcomes members in its own right.
The course has undergone extensive changes over the years including, in 1998, intrusion of the College extensions, which reduced the par 5 ninth hole to a par 4. In November 2011 the construction of three new holes was completed to provide a longer more challenging test of golf. The course now consists of one par 5, six par 4s, and two par 3s. Ten teeing areas provide a different perspective for the second nine holes.
