The Grange Golf Course commenced operation in 1964 as AIS Collieries Golf Club, effectively a company owned golf course for the use of employees of AIS Collieries, later the colliery relinquished ownership and handed the Club over to the members and became The Grange Golf Club. The Directors of The Grange identified in the early 2000’s that to remain a viable business and maintain a significant community asset that amalgamation with a strong local club would be in their best interests. After lengthy member consultation this became a reality in June 2006, amalgamating with Dapto Leagues
The club’s primary purpose is to promote the game of Golf; however as part of the amalgamation in 2006 the club constitutions became the same as Dapto Leagues Club. Of which the clubs purpose is to provide facilities for, promote, encourage and assist social, literary, sporting and other recreational and cultural activities among members and their guests. Also to assist generally in fostering, developing, promoting, conducting and encouraging Rugby League Football and all forms of sports, athletics, recreations, physical culture and cultural pursuits in the Dapto district and elsewhere.
The success of this partnership has offered the membership of both clubs access to a range of different facilities, and has enhanced the benefits of being a member of both clubs, whilst ensuring that both clubs will be around for many years into the future. The expected growth of the population in the area, will see our new residents inherit a range of facilities and benefits second to none.
“The picturesque Mullet Creek winds its way through the course, coming into play on 11 holes and at its most penal on the back nine.”
The gently undulating and more heavily tree-lined back nine presents The Grange’s most memorable holes. The stretch from the par 4 12th to the short par 4 15th – on land linked to the main course by a walkway under the Princes Highway – is superb.
The land these holes have been laid out over rolls and dips far more then any of the earlier holes, which makes them more exciting. The 532 metre par-5 13th is a brute – not just for its length but also its demand for accuracy to avoid the rows of tall trees lining the fairway.
While The Grange’s longest hole requires straight hitting, so does its shortest. The 146 metre par 3 18th is the club’s signature hole – and for good reason. Standing on the tee there is only one thing between you the front edge the green – the cool, flowing waters of Mullet Creek. There is a short fairway to the left of the water and in front of putting surface, which is heavily bunkered. This hole is easily affected by wind and anything from a 3-iron to a wedge could be used to find the small undulating green.”
