The golf course continued to grow
Pennant Hills is perhaps unique in that no course architect can claim to have been the designer. In the years between 1923 and 1934 the course developed slowly and when the current sixth hole was added in 1934 the concept was complete. Apart from lengthening and adding bunkers, no dramatic changes have been made in the last seventy years. In 1934 the course was 6261 yards long while today it is 6475 yards (5921 metres), an increase of just 214 yards.
The course is not long by modern standards but par is well defended by trees, bunkering and variable lies created by its hilly terrain. At no time in its history has the course record been lowered below 63; against par 71.
Pennant Hills Golf Club Limited was formed in 1937
The word ‘District’ was dropped from the name in November 1937 when the shares and debentures of all previous shareholders were redeemed and Pennant Hills Golf Club Limited was formed, with the land being owned by the Golf Club as opposed to a landholding Company.
The current members of Pennant Hills Golf Club recognise the debt they owe to the founders who had the foresight to secure the land. There should be little doubt that those founders would be amazed by the quality of the course that has evolved from their vision and proud to know that we still have a most friendly family oriented Club, yet with a course that is always a challenging test of golf.
