The Killara Golf Club has one of the most complete sets of archives amongst Sydney golf clubs, and it continues to be expanded and improved with the continued support of the Board. The late Dr Earle Bastian asked the Committee’s permission to sort through the accumulated old files to create the Club’s archives in 1978. He did this up till 1997 when sickness forced him to retire.
The Archives Committee has continued to develop the system to provide the Club with records that are easily accessed for reference and to provide the Board with background material on any subject that they are considering.
The collection includes material from the very early days in 1899 until the present day. Photographs, Newspaper articles, 8mm film, slides, CD’s and DVD’s, course and building plans, golf clubs, minutes from Board meetings and from the Ladies’ Committee, annual reports and many other items. It houses records for the Ex-Service Members’ Association and some records from the Bowlers and has a large but incomplete set of golf Fixture Books.
The Archives Committee is always interested to receive from members or their families any memorabilia no matter how unimportant they may feel it to be. We are particularly interested in photographs, Fixture Books prior to 1972, trophies and any special correspondence which may enhance our collection.
Please do not throw it away but instead contact Reception by e-mail or telephone 9498 2700. If you have an item that you would like returned then Archives will copy/scan/photograph and ensure that the item is returned to you.
