2017 Historians Forum

23 Oct 2017 – Riversdale Golf Club

The final historian’s forum for the year was at Riversdale Golf Club.

The four main speaker’s very informative presentations gave us a real insight into the clubs long and proud history.

President Ken Watson spoke about the Murdoch family and their connection with the club. John Boundy talked about the St Johns Wood course -the clubs current location. Ian Rowell gave us an insight into the first 20 years of the Riversdale Cup. This much sort after and prestigious amateur trophy has a wonderful history. John Boundy returned to the lectern to talk about Riversdale 125 the clubs most recent historical publication.

Other presentations of interest were by Cliff George GSA Curator, he spoke about the Victorian Golf Cup, a trophy with an interesting history.

It was quite special to see this beautiful old trophy displayed beside the Riversdale Cup.

Ross Davis spoke about his comprehensive collection of golf ball markers. They were well displayed and drew a lot of interest.

With wonderful views of the course, members and guests had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
