The Eastern Sward Golf Club was originally part of the Social Club of the Eastern Treatment Plant belonging to the Melbourne Water Corporation.
In 1995 the Golf Club broke away from the umbrella of the Social Club and leased the golf course from Melbourne Water.
It is a spacious flat course elevated 4 – 6 metres above sea level, just under 5000 metres in length, generously covered with trees and shrubs as well as four small lakes to add to the country atmosphere of the area. The small greens are lightly bunkered but are true and consistent throughout the seasons. An abundance of birdlife adds to the quietness and serenity of the surroundings.
Club Membership grew from 90 to over 300 in less than two years and increased steadily peaking at 420 in the year 2000. The course has continually improved with holes lengthened, greens enhanced and accordingly a higher course rating achieved. The Eastern Sward is still a quiet and peaceful course like no other where players of all ages can enjoy, with exceptional privacy, the benefits of a somewhat flatter and shorter course.
