Maldon is Australia’s "First [and only] Notable Town", based on gold mining which ceased as a major industry in the 20’s, leaving an intact collection of mining cottages, late 19th and early 20th century homes, and public buildings dating back to the gold rush of the 1850’s. The shopping precinct and other streetscapes are unique.
The golf club has a season operating from early April to late October, and 9 holes are kept playable for the Summer months. An honour system operates for visiting players, and golfers with handicaps are welcome to join in club events.
Though short, the course is quite challenging and undulating in parts. There are a number of blind shots to be played, and there ia a par 3 that can be approached only over some very tall gums. Sand greens are always a challenge to the uninitiated.
The Club Tournament is always held over the first weekend in August.
