Craigieburn-Willmott Golf Club
In April 1975 Lower Heidelberg Golf Club was renamed Willmott Park Golf Club and relocated from Yarra Bend Golf Course to Willmott Park Golf Course in Craigieburn.
A few years after the move Willmott Park Golf Course was renamed by Council and became Craigieburn Golf Course.
For 18 years Willmott Park Golf Club operated as the sole golf club at the Willmott Park /Craigieburn Golf Course.
It was 1993 when 12 members of the Craigieburn Sporting Club, known as the dirty dozen formed the Craigieburn Golf Club as a social club and then in 1994, they registered the Golf Club as an incorporated body.
Subsequent extension and redesign of the Sporting Club saw the Pro-Shop moved from a divided building under the same roof as Willmott Park Golf Club to its current location under the roof of the Sporting Club. This allowed Craigieburn Golf Club to occupy the now vacated old Pro-Shop area as their club house.
At about the same time as above Craigieburn Golf Club changed from playing Sunday to Saturday for club competition with Willmott Park Golf Club continuing their traditional Sunday club competition.
The arrangement of two golf clubs playing on the Craigieburn Golf Course and being under the same roof but using separate rooms continued until 2013. By this time Craigieburn Golf Club had dissolved incorporation of the golf club and become a sub-committee of the Sporting Club.
Years of negotiation and general discussions resulted in a special general meeting of all financial members of Willmott Park Golf Club in 2012 where a vote was taken for the club to dissolve incorporation. Due to dwindling membership Willmott Park Golf Club were seeking to amalgamate with Craigieburn Golf Club.
At a general meeting financial members of Craigieburn & Willmott Park Golf Clubs both voted unanimously to form one club so that on the 1st July 2013 Craigieburn-Willmott Golf Club commenced.
Since this time the Craigieburn-Willmott Golf Club has built on the strength of this amalgamation with many successes and provides mid-week in addition to weekend club competitions for more than 200 members.
