WELCOME

Mt Derrimut Golf & Community club originated in 1923 on a course called “The Rock and Thistle”, located between Glengala Road and the Kororoit Creek Road in Sunshine.

The club began on 9th July, 1923 at the State Bank of Sunshine with a meeting of local business people interested in forming a golf club. Mr H.V. McKay, of Sunshine Harvester fame, was appointed the Club’s Patron, with the first elected president Mr Thacker.

The original course was a 9 hole Par 66, with sandscrape greens. The land was heavily encrusted with lava rock outcrops and thick with scotch thistles. The first clubhouse was built in 1927-28 at a cost of 150 pounds ($300).

In 1963, the Club voted to relocate to the Fitzgerald Road site and moved in 1964 to play on the 18 hole, par 70 course with grass greens. The land cost 70,000 pounds ($140,000), course construction 30,000 pounds ($60,000), and clubhouse 25,000 pounds ($50,000).

In 2002, the Club again voted to relocate to the Mt Derrimut site. The move took place in November 2007 and is an 18 hole, par 72 championship course with fully irrigated greens and fairways using recycled water.

The golf course at Mt Derrimut is designed by Craig Parry and Pacific Coast Design to complement the historic significance of the site. The clubhouse incorporates the farm homestead built in 1883 with many of the original buildings of the past being retained and used by the Club. The historic dry stone walls are an integral feature on the course.

The professional staff are on hand at all times to give lessons and to make all visitors feel welcome making sure they thoroughly enjoy their golfing holidays.

  • 4 star review  Wide open fairways immaculately presented which the ball sits up on like a cushion. Not a lot of trees which is forgiving, but some interesting hazards throughout the course. Overall the course felt extremely long, but there's good bounce and roll. The greens are like slate which takes some getting used to, but the ball runs true. The bunkers are like compacted builder's rubble which there's probably a trick to getting out of but I didn't figure it out, so best to steer clear of them where possible. Club house is large and very nice.

  • 4 star review  Good range under covering wit a city view in the far distance. Easily accessible at all hours, just walk in and use pay wave in the machine for sixty balls for 12.50

  • 5 star review  My Derrimut can be a nice and challenging course. It has up hill holes, down hill holes, water holes and wind coming in from every direction. It’s my local course and has a great driving range and mini golf. The people in the pro shop and the bar/cafe/restaurant are always friendly and welcoming. The view from the outdoor area back down the 18th is a great place to watch players and groups coming in. Highly recommended. They also have some great deals for memberships.
