The first golf course location mentioned to berowralivinghistory was in the vicinity of Nalya Road. Longtime Berowra resident Peter Huett recalls working on the proposed 9 hole golf course. World War II bought the project to an abrupt halt.
Time passed and then the following appeared in the Berowra District News July 1972 (published by the Berowra Progress Association)
Golf Course ProposedA further public meeting to pursue the Berowra Golf Course proposal will be held 1st August at 7.30pm following the interim committee inspecting and making preliminary enquiries on the status of the project. In 1968 the department of Lands gave Hornsby Shire Council firm indication of making available a large parcel of land at the end of Turner Road “which would be suitable for a golf course”Discussion at the meeting was to include debate on a Public Golf Course of 18 holes, & an associated licenced Golf Club.
Meetings continued but the newspapers reveal little progress. In 1973 a public notice advised a Foundation Membership of $5.00!
What happened? Can you tell us?
