Ledge Point Golf Club was designed and laid out by PGA Life Member and past PGA president John 'Jock' Borthwick.

Jock was the President of the PGA of Australia from 1968 - 1979, and again in 1986.

As a resident of Ledge Point Jock's dream and design started in the year 2000 and in 2002 with the help of the Dad's Army, construction began on the course.

Being a Scotsman, Jock was a bit of a character and many tales can be shared both in Ledge Point and around the many golf clubs of Australia, his long time partner, Carola, is still an active member and volunteer at the golf club.

Dads Army

 

The construction of the course was carried out by a team of volunteers locally known as 'Dads Army' using donated and borrowed equipment and materials.

Many of the members of Dads Army are still playing regularly and have lots of stories to tell regarding their hard work and pride in building  such a fine golf course.

Today's Volunteers

 

The club continues to be maintained and cared for by volunteers. Fairways are mown weekly and the greens every day during the growing season. Maintenance of the reticulation is carried out regularly and there are numerous other volunteers helping out meeting and greeting visitors, organising buggies and carts etc.

People are justifiably proud of the golf course, it is a tribute to those who have passed and to those who continue the good work.
