Peninsula Kingswood was born from the merger of two established clubs, each a century old. After extensive developments and the addition of accommodation, food and beverage and additional recreational facilities including indoor pool, bowling green, gym, tennis court, the new Peninsula Kingswood has established itself as a super facility on-par with the world’s best.
Both prestigious in their own right, Kingswood Golf Club and Peninsula Country Golf Club were boast a long history as exceptional golf facilities.
Initially established in 1923 as a residential golf house, The Peninsula Country Golf Club was designed by Scottish course designer Gordon Bernard Oliver, a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.
In 1924, a small group then took the steps to acquire the property for the purpose of establishing a private country golf club. Eventually the group acquired the club and in 1925 the facility became known as The Peninsula Country Golf Club.
In the early 1960s a decision was made to build a new clubhouse at the present location, and to create two 18 hole courses. New Zealand designer Sloan Morpeth incorporated six of Oliver’s holes from the original course into his designs for the new North and South courses, set amongst 450 acres of beautiful native bushland.
In September of 2013 The Peninsula Country Golf Club officially merged with Kingswood Golf Club, the first merger of two golf clubs in Australia. The Peninsula Kingswood Country Golf Club, as it is now formally known, provides members and guests a first class private Club that offers the very best in Sandbelt golf through two separate courses with state of the art facilities.
A true ‘Country Club’ since its inception, Peninsula Kingswood offers a range of luxurious accommodation options and non-golf facilities. The clubhouse contains 8 luxuriously appointed accommodation rooms. Additionally, spacious on-course villas are nestled discretely around the complex. The villas feature an expansive living space and deck with views of the course and surrounds.
The clubhouse is also known for the quality of the food service and the extensive wine list. Regular visitors have been staying at Peninsula for over 40 years enjoying the Club as their home away from home.
