A Brief History
The Keperra Country Golf Club has a rich history dating back to the 1930’s when it was officially opened as the Enoggera Golf Club. It assumed the Keperra name in 1940.
The course originally had only 9 holes with a total yardage of 2,616 yards, but by 1936 had been expanded to a full 18-hole links course, so popular was golf proving with the local community.
The course was expanded again in 1981, to the full 27-hole championship course that is now enjoyed by our members and their guests.
The clubhouse was opened in 1935, but over the years has undergone a number of refurbishments and extensions to meet the needs of our members.
Our Club has hosted the prestigious amateur tournament, the Keperra Bowl, for many years, welcoming some of the world’s top amateur players.
The Club also stepped in at short notice to stage an exhibition event in 1971, welcoming Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, who boast 27 Major
championships between them.
Keperra has produced some of its own famous golfers over the years. John Senden has won six times as a Touring Professional, most recently at the 2014 Valspar Championship on the PGA Tour in the USA.
Peter Senior (Life Member) has won the Australian Open twice and the Australian PGA Championship and Australian Masters three times and remains as competitive as ever despite enjoying veteran status.
Both John and Peter began their golfing careers as juniors at Keperra. We invite you to come and help write the next chapter in the history of our great Club.

The Shield is divided vertically (per pale) and coloured gold (or) blue (azure), two of the Club colours. In the centre a broad ring (chaplet) coloured white (argent) and decorated with aboriginal designs alludes to the Bora Ring, principal historical feature of the golf course. The upper part of the shield (chief) is divided from the rest by an irregular (dancetty) line and coloured white (of the third – the third colour mentioned in the blazon), the third of the Club’s colours. The “dancetty” line represents the hills of the Taylor Range. Within the chief a Maltese Cross coloured blue (of the second – the second colour mentioned) is placed to identify the club within QLD.
The crest is a bent (embowed) right arm coloured black (sable) representing an aboriginal’s arm holding a woomera and spear. The woomera, an instrument used to hurl a projectile into the air is a symbolic allusion to the golf clubs, the spear symbolic of the golf ball. The flagstaffs are crossed (in sattire) behind the shield and represents the flags on the greens. Red for the outward nine and gold (yellow does not exist in heraldry) for the inward nine.
The laurel branches following the line of the shield (otherwise) are symbolic of athletic skill.
