The publicly accessible Mackay Golf Club in Beaconsfield, Queensland was founded in June 1925 with the initial nine-hole course being situated on the town common, which is now the Mackay Airport.

The club moved to its present site in 1928 after leasing 122-acres of grazing land, sufficient land for a nine-hole golf course. The clubhouse was moved from the common to its current site in 1930 and the club came of age when the first Club Professional, Horrie Sloan, was appointed.

In 1933, a tree-planting committee was formed, and the extensive tree planting in those early days has resulted in the impressive tree-lined fairways that are seen at the course today, which place a premium on playing straight shots.

Just prior to the Second World War a 43-acre area west of the course was purchased to allow the construction of an additional nine holes, but construction was put on hold until after the war. In 1947 the second nine-holes were laid out and the ambition of an 18-hole course was finally realized. All the while, a steady momentum of clearing the heavy rough and improving the course was maintained to make play more enjoyable for experienced and novice golfers alike.

Since those early days many of the blue couch fairways of Mackay's par 71 course have been re-planted with Greenlees Park and the blue couch greens have all been rebuilt and planted with Bermuda 328.

The clubhouse has a bar and restaurant and can cater to functions and events. Golfers can take advantage of the pro shop and can practice on either the driving range or putting green before their walk or cart around.
