Peter Toyne's Clubhouse Golf
When it comes to golf, Peter Toyne knows just about everything there is to know. With over 50 years experience in the golfing industry as student, amateur golfer, pro golfer, and golf shop owner, Peter Toyne has earned himself a name synonymous with quality and service.
Peter's golfing career began when he first worked as an Assistant Golf Pro with Len Boorer at Geelong Golf Club back in 1959. Turning pro golfer at the tender age of 17 and working at the Torquay Golf Club and Lonsdale Golf Club, Peter's attention turned to providing affordable quality golfing equipment to the region of Geelong and its surrounds.

Wanting to do something different, Peter sought to offer a huge range of golfing equipment including golf bags, golf balls, chippers, irons, fairway woods, drivers, putters, extensive golf buggy selection, accessories, footwear and much more in a golf shop that was not located on a golf course. He chose the centre of Geelong for its close proximity to a large number golf courses and golf clubs around the region including Geelong, Barwon Heads, Anglesea and Torquay Golf Club. In doing so, Peter's golf shop - aptly named Peter Toyne's Golf Centre became one of the first off-course golf shops to open in Australia and in turn, Peter, one of the youngest golf shop owners. Now we have all this available online.
Changing the name slightly several years on, to Peter Toyne's Clubhouse Golf, and determined to remain at the forefront of retail golf, Peter installed a golf simulator, allowing his customers to effectively trial the various drivers, woods, and irons that are available instore before purchasing them.
Additionally, Peter established one of Australia's premier golf academies, the Geelong Golf Academy in order to aid budding golfers and experienced golfers alike by providing professional coaching and lessons.
With his love of golf and golfing paraphernalia, Peter has also become an ardent collector of golf antiques and memorabilia accruing a vast and interesting assortment which from time to time are available to the public for viewing or purchase.
With a work ethos of extensive knowledge about golf and manufacturers of golfing products, outstanding customer service and a solid reputation for value for money quality items, Peter Toyne and his golf shop "Clubhouse Golf" have survived fire, recession, several moves, and now the internet age to remain a leading golf shop of Geelong, allowing customers the very best of golf equipment, golf accessories and golf apparel both to buy instore and to buy online.
