In 1924 a New Zealand sheep farmer, John Orr and his wife Christina Orr, arrived in Australia. The couple purchased a parcel of land known as the Winnererremy Swamp. John was a keen golfer and it wasn’t long before he built six holes for his own enjoyment. Being a generous man, he asked others to play while Christina entertained with afternoon tea.
In 1928, a small Clubhouse was built, and a tin was nailed to an Ironbark tree beside the 1st tee. An honesty system of 1-shilling a round was agreed upon. In 1932, a larger Clubhouse was built and in 1933, more land was purchased on the far side of Cabbage Tree Road. This was the beginning of Bayview Golf Club.
The Golf Club has had a number of name changes over the years – Bayview Links, Bayview Country Club and Bayview Country Golf Links. In 1948, Bayview Golf Club Limited was formed. The Club was leased by the Members until 1967, when funds were raised to purchase the Club from the Orrs.
In February of 2009, Bayview Golf Club invested in a new $7.2 million state of the art Clubhouse. Members & visitors now have access to a stylish lounge, bar and restaurant.
