Royal Malta Golf Club - Malta's only golf course that is also steeped in history
Directions to Royal Malta Golf Club
Founded in 1888 by Lieutenant-General Sir Henry D’Oyley Torrens KCB KCMG, also responsible for launching the game in South Africa with the Cape Golf Club (predecessor of Royal Cape), as a facility for British servicemen stationed in Malta, The Royal Malta Golf Club is a private member club (visitors are welcome) and part of an exclusive circle of 65 golf clubs in the Commonwealth to have Royal status. The Club’s most renowned Pro is David Llewellyn, who was here between 1978 and 1981, and capped his illustrious career by winning the World title for Wales in 1987.
A mammoth mission to upgrade the overall standard of the 18 hole course was started in 1988 and the course today is a completed little gem with fairways planted with Bermuda grass, a computerised wall-to-wall watering system, refurbishment of the 50 sand bunkers, re-planting of the tees with TifSport grass and the greens with the state of the art TifEagle grass. This upgrade had ensured The Royal Malta Golf Club’s status as a leading golf course in the Southern Mediterranean.
Other facilities found at The Royal Malta Golf Club include a restaurant, a well equipped Pro Shop and coaching and training facilities managed by the resident Club Professional, Henning Schulze Doering.
