Object Detail

Brief description
Robert Fischer was a member of the Parramatta Golf Club in the 1980s and 1990s where he played as a Junior every weekend (commencing approx.. age 13 or 14). He represented the club in the Junior pennants team selected by the club from its best junior players. He also represented Parramatta Golf club playing against other clubs in B Grade (Warren Shield). He would undertake Parramatta Club competitions on Saturdays and then represent the Club away on Sundays.

History of the Golf Club: The present layout, near the railway line and just along from the thriving Westfield Parramatta shopping centre, came about in 1954 when the Fox Hills (Wentworthville) professional Bill Kaye-Smith, who managed a driving range on the present course, approached the Parramatta Park Trust for permission to build two par threes for range patrons to practice their short games.

The Trust instead decided a nine-hole course there would best serve the community of Parramatta.

The club continued to operate the nine-hole layout and driving range for more than 50 years but with declining membership in recent years, just 230 members remain, the club was placed into voluntary administration when it closed its gates for the last time 13 April 2015.
