The Memorial Club has a solid community base, which has its origins some 90 years ago when the local Sub Branch of the RSL was formed.
The Club takes pride in its community spirit and continues to make resources available to the community. The Mangrove Mountain Memorial Club is proud to sponsor the Mountain District Soccer Club.
Mangrove Mountain RSL Sub-Branch
The Sub Branch dates back to 1919 when the Founding President was Sgt A W Burns who held Service No. 338. Three members of the founding committee had served overseas in the Boer War. They were S McKenzie, C Stubbs and J Wagnor.
Around ANZAC day 1919 returned personnel gathered for their first meeting on an old log near the present Mangrove Mountain Union Church site. This inaugural meeting led to a Charter being given in October 1919. Although there wasn’t any official building at the time, the group met at the house of Miss Hull until Kulnura Hall was built, making a central place for future meetings to be held
Memorial Club & Golf Course
The golf course opened in 1974. In the early days the course was pretty rugged and, according to rumour, if you lost your ball in the rough you lit a fire that cleared the rough area so you could find your ball the next week!
The membership was then 20 and has now grown to 500. We have a new Clubhouse on course with a great 10 hole golf course and a Pro Shop which caters for the pro-golfer or the beginner. The golf course is being extended to 18 holes.
Amalgamation with Mangrove Country Club
The amalgamation with Mangrove Country Club was settled at 3:30pm on Friday, 30th September 2011.
