The site has significant associations with early settler identities of the Bolgart area, and the establishment of a golf club and course.


The first meeting of the Bolgart Golf Club took place on 19 April 1926. (from CWA minute books- Batty Library) Foundation committee members included; Luke Travers President, Cliff Martin Captain, Jack Coutes Secretary, Jack Butterly, Dal Ludemann and Charles Syred. Golf was played in McPherson's paddock until 1932. Two brothers Ralph and Dick Martin had played golf before, and were keen advocates of the nine hole course which was constructed around the Bolgart townsite in 1932. The course operated until 1952, when a new course was established at a different location east of Bolgart.
