Background - Golf in Australia
Golf was played in Australia during the 19th century, for example in Tasmania in the 1820's, in Melbourne 1847, Adelaide 1870 and Sydney 1882. Clubs were formed but disbanded at least for a period. The Melbourne Golf Club, which has existed continuously from 1891, is regarded as the oldest golf club in Australia.

Host of The Presidents Cup
The Presidents Cup has grown to become one of the most eagerly awaited and highly watched events in the world of golf. Every two years top players from the United States and an International Team culled from the ranks of the finest golfers outside Europe clash on a global stage in four days of team match-play competition. In November of 2011 The Presidents Cup will return to The Royal Melbourne Golf Club for the first time since 1998.
