The Lansdowne Club

The Lansdowne Club was formed in 1986 by a group of Irish born business people living in Australia. At the time there was no Irish business orientated focal point and this void was filled by the Lansdowne Club. The Club has developed significantly over the past twenty nine years. Today, many of our members hold significant positions within the largest corporations in Australia covering hundreds of industries. Our membership numbers are now close to 2,000 and are detailed in our online membership data base.

Lansdowne Club Golf Classic - Thursday 8 September 2016

Dear Members

This is our 18th consecutive Golf Classic, we went to The Lakes Golf Club for the first time in 2014 to freshen things up to ensure the event continues to be fun, accessible and unique, and not just another corporate golf day. The day was a great success.

This year we will continue to have our - Qualifying Round, Playoff,  Ambrose Elimination format and of course the Guinness & Irish Coffee bars.  As the earlier 8.00 am start last year proved very successful we will continue with this format, followed by a buffet lunch & presentation ceremony following the playoff, earlier mid-afternoon finish!

We are delighted that we will again host the Golf Classic 2016 on Thursday 8th September at The Lakes Golf Club .  As you will know The Lakes is one of the leading major tournament venues in Australia having recently hosted the Men's Australian Opens in 2010, 2011 & 2012. Located just 10 mins from the CBD it's easy to get to and means you can be back in the office by mid-afternoon or home for an early dinner with the family.

To secure a corporate team spot or individual, just complete the attached Team registration form and return it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible.   We expect demand to be high and want to limit the number of teams to an enjoyable & manageable level on the day, so please return your booking form with payment asap to guarantee your spot.

Thanks again for your interest and support and we look forward to another great Golf Classic.


Best wishes

Sabine Hochbaum, Phil O'Sullivan, Niall Power & David Eccles Golf Classic Organising Committee.
