History Of Naracoorte Golf Club

Naracoorte Golf Club History


The originalgolf course in Naracoorte was known as the ‘Dartmoor Golf Course’ and waslocated in the general area now occupied by the Naracoorte High School and wasthen known as the ‘Police Paddock’. Italso encompassed part of the parklands on the opposite side of the highways andsome of the flat country to the west belonging to Naracoorte station.

Even inthose days, players had to exercise caution when hitting across the road, intwo places, so as not to endanger the traffic. The other hazards were the Naracoorte Creek, generally in flood duringthe winter, and of course, the inevitable hoof marks. ‘Floater’ balls were an essential part of thegolfer’s equipment when playing across the creek, and even then it wasdifficult to effectively recover. Someof the scrapes were fenced off to prevent damage by stock and this added to thedifficulty of chipping to the scrapes, even though a replay was allowed if postor wire was struck.

The fairwaysbore no resemblance whatsoever to those which we are now accustomed. Apart fromhoof marks, the ground was very wet and covered with rough naturalgrasses. As ‘Dartmoor’ was located on amixture of private and public land, including a main road, it obviously couldnot be a permanent location and did not warrant restricted upgrading. There is no doubt that the thrust andincentive for the formation of a new course and Club location came from one ofour Life Members the Late Dr. H K Pavy, very strongly supported by the membersand associates listed below.

Followingfather’s footsteps, R L Schinckel, son of H B Schinckel, joined the Committeein 1967 and was President for three years, including 1975, when majoralterations to the Clubhouse and ‘pro’ shop were carried out. In recording the names of the originalassociate members and not those who followed, in no way reflects on thetremendous support given to the members throughout the 50 years period ofdevelopment. Not only in catering thesocial activities, but with working bees, weed eradication, sowing fairways,divot filling and improvements to the Clubhouse and surrounds. A pattern of high standards was set in thebeginning and has been carried on through the Club’s history to the presentday. The whole venture of forming a newclub, establishing a new course, hinged on finding a suitable area readily availableto the town and not too costly, as there were no funds accumulated at thisstage. At a general meeting of some 15men, it was decided to form the Naracoorte Golf Club with the purpose ofacquiring suitable land and then developing a new golf course. Acting on a suggestion from the Ranger of theDistrict Council, Peter Wallace, that he and Dr H K Pavy mount their horses andcarry out an inspection of some 200 acres of parklands north of the town, toride out into the thick, wild scrub in its natural state with a visibility of50-100 yards and pick an area suitable to a golf course was nothing short ofincredible.

Then50 years later to have it turn out to be the fourth best in the State and oneof the best country courses in Australia. Perhaps the most fateful thing that led them directly to the spot nowoccupied by the Clubhouse was the District Council’s activities. The Council had excavated three areas(quarries) on what is now the 1st and 9th and under theClubhouse, in search of road metal. Fortunately the rock just under the surface proved too hard for theunsophisticated frontend loaders and diggers of the day, and the area wasabandoned. More was to be heard of thishard rock when 48 years later a small band of volunteers organised by R LSchinckel (President during 1975), set about quarrying the foundations forextensions to the Clubhouse. Many daysof pneumatic drilling, picking and shovelling, was required before the rockyielded to the onslaught. Had the rockbeen diggable and suitable for road making in 1927 we most certainly would notbe occupying this site today. To get upto these trial quarries, a track was cut and used by horse drawn drays. This track is now our main entrance. Pavy and Wallace followed this same track upto the quarries and so history was made, the site being chosen because Pavythought the area very similar to a course in Canada on which he had played.

Havinglocated and decided on an area, it was necessary to obtain some form ofsemi-permanent or renewable lease from the Government through the NaracoorteCorporation. The Mayor of Naracoorte atthat time was N V Wallace and he rendered every assistance in procuring a 21year lease with the right of renewal and safeguards for the Club’s assets for ayearly rental of one pound. The task of clearing scrub, ferns, levellingfairways and eradicating hordes of rabbits and their burrows with a very smalllabour force and practically no machinery, must have appeared very formidable.

Itwould appear that Alf Dinning, assisted by Ted and Harry Schinckel, undertookthe job of getting sufficient land cleared for a nine hole course. Support came from other members and theassociates put in many hours removing ferns and weeds and with cleaning upoperations. No such thing as abulldozer, loader or chainsaw. Thetimber was manually cut and grubbed, the enormous bracken fern and stink-wortpulled by hand; in addition, the scrape areas shovelled and raked.

Asmall lean-to shed was erected in the southern corner of the new course andthis was to serve as a Clubhouse and office until 1934 when another major stepforward occurred. By the end of March,1928, preparation of the course for play had progressed to such an extent thatan opening day was set. On April 6th,the new course was opened and a Canadian mixed foursome was played, but I havebeen unable to establish who may have won the event.

Duringthe first six years the nine hole course was improved as the membership grewand the urge to move forward came in 1933 when it was decided to build a newClubhouse in the centre of the course that would serve members for many yearsto come. The venture hinged on raisingthe necessary eight hundred pounds required to carry out the project and thiswas resolved when Mrs Clive Robertson loaned the money to the Club for 5 yearsat 5%. After another general meeting,Walter White, Architect of Mount Gambier, was engaged to draw up plans andsupervise the construction. The quarryso conveniently left by the Council, proved most useful and simplified thebuilding of a two-storey structure. Completed in the second half of 1934, it was duly opened by N V Wallaceon August 11th of that year; E C H Schinckel was President and WBlack Captain.

Theexisting holes were renumbered so that the first hole started at the Clubhouseand was played down the west side of the drive, then the original sixth becamethe ninth, finishing behind the Clubhouse.

Ahigh stone backed tee was constructed in front of the clubhouse and players hitdown to a plateau scrape just to the right of where the pump shed is locatednear the front gate. The scrape wassurrounded by high, thick ferns with the out of bounds fence 10 yards to therear. Great anguish was caused by many agood stroke bouncing a little too far. Incidentally, most of the bush consisted of honeysuckle, hop bush,wattles and very thick bracken fern, generously sprinkled with rabbit burrows. In many cases a shot which finished off thefairway stood a fair chance of being lost or unplayable.

Whenthe club was re-activated, I think the membership fee was around four poundsand four shillings and the old system of acceptance as a member by secretballot with one negative vote rejecting the applicant. This happened several times and causedconsiderable ill feeling in the town, so the present system of a majority voteby the Committee was introduced, thus setting the scene for a larger membershipand club growth.

Itwas not intended to cover the whole detailed history of this club, but ratherto fill in the gap up to the period of 1956 when committee and club records areavailable for future historians. Duringthe decade after the war, the historian, to be brief, has to restrict thementioning of names to key figures and important details.

Therewas an enormous amount of work done by a very large number of members andassociates besides the Committee and one would need to write another book tocover it all. In the early days of theclub, when the membership was so small, it was simple to give space to allactivities and people. In more recenttimes, one would not know where to draw the line. However, there are a few people who played avery important role in the re-organising, the planning and carrying out of thevery progressive club activities. Withthe return of the servicemen and women and the influx of many new townspeople,the membership grew very quickly along with a new enthusiasm for progress andimprovement. Until this period, the Clubhad operated as an exclusive private club with restricted membership and itbecame evident a change was warranted so that the Club could cater for allthose within to play golf. It isinteresting to note that after this Club was formed and separated from ‘Dartmoor’,the Naracoorte Golf Club was known as the ‘Silvertails’.

Althoughmuch groundwork, planning and re-organising took place in the years immediatelyafter the war, the real thrust forward occurred about 1953 when the conversionfrom scrapes to greens became a positive goal. Much of the drive keenness came from a new-comer to the district and onewho was to give 25 years of dedicated service to the Club, organising andworking to achieve our objective. Itwas, M H Monfries, who persuaded the Committee after many hours of discussion, toput in a trial green which proved most successful. Indeed what else could have happened, asMonfries practically lived on the course. The committee responsible for most of the planning and organising theproject was:

C AWade, President. D Hawker

G R Rippon, Vice-President. A F Porter

P A Learmonth, Past President. M M Cudmore, Captain

M H Monfries V Mayger

D G Schinckel. J C Nolan

C H Heard. K F Cowling, Secretary

R T Hood


Eventuallythe stage was reached when it was decided that the Committee’s planning wassufficiently advanced to warrant the calling of a general meeting. This general meeting was the calling of ageneral meeting. This general meetingwas held on August 9th, 1956 and was addressed by the President G RRippon, who explained the project and then called upon M H Monfries to givedetails of the plan for converting from scrapes to greens. It was moved by L R Vincent and seconded E H Learmonththat authority be given to the Committee to prepare the course for conversionto greens based on a plan submitted by golf course architect, H V Morcom. And so the next most important stage ofcourse improvement began when the motion was carried unanimously. At that meeting, David Hawker offered hisservices and his ‘Bulldozer’ for the purpose of clearing and the earth formingprogramme. This very generous offer was accepted and was to save the Club avery substantial amount of money and labour. The finance required to carry out the initial stage of the plan wasprovided from club funds, donations and a debenture system supported by 80members and associates.

Apartfrom the great amount of work and thought contributed by the Committee and thetwo members mentioned above, there were over 100 volunteers who put in manyhours of valuable effort in establishing the new greens and planting of teesand fairways. The culmination of allthis work came on May 10th, 1958, when the course was officiallydeclared open by the President of that year, G R Rippon. In his remarks, the President commended allthose who contributed to the success of the project, especially mentioning M HMonfries and his fellow co-ordinator and organiser C H Heard, both of whom hadcontributed so much to the fulfilment of the concept of scrapes to greens.

Inthe post war period of the Naracoorte Golf Club there were a number of scratchand near scratch members and associates who dominated golf in the club, theSouth East and scored well in the South Australian Country Championships. The most outstanding golfer in the club from1943 to 1988 was, undisputedly, Olive (Campbell) Nolan winning thechampionships twenty two times, who also won the South East Championshipsseveral times and the Champion of Champions on many occasions. Add to that her success in the SouthAustralian Country Championships five times, once runner-up in the State Open,and to show her versatility by taking out the Grange Club Championships in1972. Other than turning professional,what more could this unassuming wonderful sportswoman do? In 1954 Olive decided to play golf seriouslyand sought the help and advice of Max Monfries, making rapid progress, shedeveloped a smooth, rhythmical style and to match that a temperament thathelped to achieve this magnificent record. ‘Doody’ Hood was one who did much for the Naracoorte Golf Club and golfin general, her domination in the championships commenced with her win in 1950and then eight more straight and her last win in 1962: then Olive Campbell cameon the scene. ‘Doody was a verydetermined and consistent golfer winning many other events in the South Eastand Victoria; she was a very popular person and did much to encourage others toplay as well as promoting the club. Afierce competitor, with a personality that is remembered with affection. Just as a matter of interest the youngestplayer to win the Club Championship was David Schinckel at the age of sixteenin 1934 and the oldest was Ross Schultz at sixty seven and it could happenagain.

Twoof the members who distinguished themselves within the club and throughout thestate were Max Monfries and Arthur Porter; between them they won the ClubChampionship 18 times, Monfries 10 and Porter 8. The last time for Monfries was in 1968 andfor Porter 1978, apart from being top players they were very popularpersonalities throughout the South East and South Australia, therefore greatambassadors for our club. They playedmany tough, close matches against each other with friendly rivalry andgamesmanship that added to the enjoyment of watching the high quality of theirgame. They both gave commendable service as committee members and freelysupported all voluntary work, more especially Monfries who lived on the coursein his endeavour to establish the greens in place of scrapes.

Overthe years there were other top golfers who came to the club and won theChampionship, in spite of these two players. One such talented golfer was the late Laurie Hall who had thedistinction of being the Club Champ at Mount Gambier, Millicent and Naracoorteat different times of course as a member of those clubs. His other successes came in the Champion ofChampions, the South East open and country week in Adelaide.

Theclub was also very honoured to have a playing visit from world famous Bobby Lockewho gave Monfries, Rippon and myself a lesson in bunker play on the courseduring a practice round before an exhibition match. Another famous golfer ofthat era, the 1950’s came here on two occasions, this was Norman Von Nidaholding clinics and demonstrations, thenin the afternoon playing a match with Laurie Hall against our two champsMonfries and Porter, the latter pair winning the match very convincingly. There have been, as usual, many people whohave given more than their share of time and energy in a voluntary effort,during the period 1978-1989. Mostprominent is John Shepherd, whom I consider has, over a long period, given asustained service, not only in time but also by making available his plant andmachinery. In similar vein I write ofGraham Leishman’s contribution, his enthusiasm and dedication over many yearsof voluntary labour and supervision. Both he and John served on the committee for long terms, willingly andwith concern for the welfare of the club. We owe them a vote of thanks along with many others mentioned andunmentioned throughout the history of the club. The club has prospered for so long due to the dedication of thosepeople, male and female who have given freely their time and continuoussupport. One can really appreciate thededication and loyalty of the hundreds of members and associates whocontributed to the club’s progress. These comments and detailed information concerning the club and somepersonalities and an update of the history of the club, is based on my ownobservation and club records.

HarryPeake, a great community worker for many town projects instigated, organisedand supervised the alterations inside the club house and the extension to thesouth end of the building, providing more entertainment space, a larger andmore conveniently sited office, facilitating the administration and comfort ofall. If the club proceeds with the ideaof establishing a motel on the course (which I hope they do not) I suggest thatH J P would be the man to do it in view of his success with the Sports Centre.

Ihave gained an enormous amount of satisfaction from myself imposed task ofcoaching young golfers and claim a certain measure of success. Dean Harris was one of the very best playersand the most successful student trained by me starting his career aged twelveyears. Reaching single figures by thetime he was sixteen and playing in the State Junior Squad for several yearsthen graduating to the State team, eventually winning the StateChampionship. He developed an almostperfect swing, very easy and relaxed, his progress made despite his lack ofenthusiasm for the first two or three years. Anton Noles was the other aspiring young boy who commenced playing golfat the age of twelve, improving rapidly. Like most young golfers his desire to hit the ball further than anyoneelse tended to affect his accuracy off the tee, this fault in my opinion costhim the Naracoorte Golf Club Championship on two occasions. However he made the State Junior Team by thetime he was fifteen and played there for several years, he also played A gradepennant golf and is successfully competing in that competition in 1988. In the late 1980’s, Anton suffered seriousinjuries in a car accident; has made a miraculous recovery winning the OpenChampionship in 1993 and the Club Championship in 1994.

WithOlive Nolan dominating golf for nearly thirty years, I was happy to help twoassociates with the Women’s events. Helen Cox in 1986, Wendy Burns 1987 and Helen again in 1989; at thisstage there doesn’t appear to be many female teenagers interested in thissport, with the exception of Danielle Gericke. She played in the Junior State Squad receiving instruction from thereand showing great promise and ability.

Duringthe period 1985-95 several greens were resewn and improved and several teesremodelled, in addition many more trees and shrubs were planted and the roughcleared of rubbish. Despite the drop inmembership the course is still very popular, well maintained and attracts alarge number of visitors.

Noone member over the previous 6 years has dominated the club championship; it isworth mentioning that Ross Schultz, won his first championship at Naracoorte at62 years old, then again in 84 and 87; and now in his seventies is one of thebest in the club. The club is alsoblessed with a number of promising juniors whom I predict will have a big influenceon golf within the club.

TheClub continues to prosper with minor improvements carried out from time totime, the course is in excellent condition and very well maintained. The course record set by one of the visiting‘Pros’ is 70, which I think speaks for itself. The course being situated so near to the town with two motels nearby isa great advantage

Iam proud to have been associated with the Club during this time and express thehope that the Club may continue to prosper and grow
