City of Perth Amateur

The City of Perth Amateur Championship was first played for in 1958 as a WA Golf Association event. It was to be played on a rotating basis around the metropolitan clubs.

However, after five years Royal Perth was asked to take it over on a permanent basis.

The Honour Board was presented to Royal Perth by Mr Lionel Gleeson, a member of the Killara Club in New South Wales. He was General Manager of Western Insurance Co (Mac Morrison a Royal Perth member was its WA manager) and donated the board in appreciation of the hospitality he had received during his many visits to Royal Perth.

The “City of Perth” has always been a feature event on the WA golf calendar and has been a useful medium for State Amateur Team player selection.
