In 1970, the area known as Morack Golf Course was re-zoned from "Rural" to "Public Open Space" thereby enabling positive planning for the golf course to begin in 1973 by which time sufficient land had been acquired by the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works.
When Morack Golf Course, spanning 56.66ha, was first opened on 8th May 1976, it was a nine hole, par 36 course of some 2,757 metres in length. The course was extended to fifteen holes by January 1980 and the complete 5,428 metre, par 71 eighteen holes by 1981.
The water supply for the course is based upon a 59 million litre dam constructed during 1975/76. Water is also pumped from the Dandenong Creek so as to maintain adequate supply from the dam. The dam services an extensive automatic watering system designed to keep the tees, green and fairways as green as possible throughout the summer months.
The dam together with the billabong alongside the creek and the water feature beside the 2nd fairway attracts a large number of water birds and are features of the course.
The views of the Dandenong Ranges combined with the undulating layout, natural bush along the Dandenong Creek and "an ongoing" landscaping and tree planting program, ensures the course as one of the most picturesque in the Melbourne Metropolitan area.
