The Glen Waverley Golf Course was opened in 1964 with nine holes and one bunker. Golfers would place a ball in a race and await their turn to hit off. The course was expanded to fourteen holes in 1967 and then eighteen holes in 1970. Course operations were run from a small kiosk on the hill. In 1981 Waverley Council built a new kiosk and pro shop on the present site.
Glen Waverley Golf Club was formed in 1967, initially meeting in a local church hall. The first Club Championship trophies were awarded in 1968.
When the Club took over the old kiosk as its clubhouse, funds were raised and with Council assistance alterations and additions were made to the site. The current clubhouse was opened in 1985.
