The Yarra Yarra Golf Club Foundation was established by the General Committee in 1995.

The Foundation aims to maintain the heritage of the Club by preserving significant features which give Yarra Yarra its uniqueness, history and values.

The Foundation Fund is controlled by a Board of Trustees independent from the General Committee and Administration of the Club. Foundation accounts are subject to audit and are published in the Club’s Annual Report. The objective of the Foundation is to create a capital fund, the interest of which can fund projects without drawing down on the capital.
