Lake Albert Golf Club was formed in 1968 when a 9 hole course was designed with black sand scrapes. In 1979 members elected to transform the course into an 18 hole course which was then designed by locals Bow Jude and Dave Cleland. The new 18 hole course was first played on in 1981 and is still the course we play today.
In 1986 members volunteered their time to lay irrigation pipes throughout the whole course, and in 1987 the 12th and 18th greens were completed.
Seven more greens were developed in 1988, and in August of 1991 members decided to develop the six remaining greens. These were first played on in 1992.
Today we have one of the best rural golf courses in South Australia with a fully licensed, airconditioned, clubhouse available to all golfers.
The many thousands of trees lining the fairways makes Lake Albert a very picturesque and interesting course to play.
We still remain a close-knit club with about sixty-five full-time members and are always looking for more. We employ one greenskeeper who averages three days a week and the rest of the course upkeep is all voluntary. We are in the process of putting in cart paths around the course and replacing the 500-odd sprinklers that keep the course looking lush. When you play this magnificent course you will see that everyone does a great job in looking after our gem.
