History Excerpt:
"As the chief port in Western Australia until the end of the 19th century, Albany received almost 30,000 visitors a year at the peak of the gold boom... As the town prospered, interest turned to sport and recreation. An English golfer visiting Albany suggested the land at Middleton Beach, beside Lake Seppings, as ideal for a nine-hole "links" course, as the best golf courses were those on traditional links on seaside land.

"The Old English word "hlinc" has been reported as describing "connected areas of sandy ground, level or undulating, covered by scrub, turf and course grass, ranging along a seashore like links in a chain"."

Wittenoom Cup Carnival: Sensational 10 days of Golf, variety of events and functions. Held in January each year.
