A nine hole course was constructed on the present site in 1926 by the then owners City Mutual Life Assurance Society Limited. A tournament for professionals was staged on 27th July 1927 to commemorate the opening.
On 19th August 1930, the Ryde Golf Club was incorporated and in 1932 the course was extended to 18 holes.
In 1934 following the close of the Parramatta Golf Club, members of that Club became members of the Club and at an extraordinary general meeting held in January 1935, the name of the company was changed to Ryde-Parramatta Golf Club Limited.
In November 1945, agreement was reached with City Mutual to purchase the freehold and improvements for 19,500 pounds ($39,000). Therefore unlike many clubs which are located on land leased from local councils or semi-government organisations, security of tenure is assured.
Ryde-Parramatta has had its share of celebrity members, neighbours and visitors through the years:
In 1997, renowned course Architect Ross Watson was commissioned to re-design the course; the works were completed in 2000. Watson’s design provides a challenging and picturesque course, able to be enjoyed by golfers of all levels.
Ryde-Parramatta Golf Club hosted the 1992 NSW Open Championship won by Craig Parry, twice the Australian Junior Interstate Series (1974 & 1992) and we continue to host qualifying for the Australian Open each year it is played in Sydney.
