The idea of forming an Association for left-handed golfers in Australia was conceived when George Ewart and three other left-handed golfers, Bill Bowden, John Daniher and Gary Downs played in the J.P. Mulholland Memorial event at Nudgee Gold Club, Brisbane on 18th August 1964. Based on a similar association in America, NALG Australia officially came into being in 1967 when delegates from Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria and NSW met to form a governing council.
The first event in Victoria was arranged by Tom Stewart, a life long friend of George Ewart and was held at Long Island Country Club on 28th October 1967.
The Victorian division conducts events mainly in the Melbourne region, with members encouraged to invite right handed golfers to join us. State, National and World Championships provide opportunities for our members to enjoy competition not available to the average club golfer not only in Australia, but throughout the world.
Membership is open to all left-handed golfers who are playing members or associate members of golf clubs affiliated with the Australian Golf Union or a State Golf Union and who hold an official recognized handicap.
