Arthur Jones was instrumental in the purchase of the original 78 acres in 1947 which saw the beginnings of the Phillip Island Golf Club, known then as ‘Cowes Golf Club’. He was also the designer of the original 9 hole course.

Arthur (a scratch golfer in pre-war years and new owner of the Continental Guest House) decided that a golf course would provide good entertainment for clients.

The land was purchased by a company of 25 shareholders.

Shortly after the company purchased the land, the Cowes Golf Club was formed, and Arthur was elected president of the club. To prove his versatility and deep love of the game he won the club championship for the first few years, and no doubt, directed course construction and maintenance work in his spare time.

In 1951, Arthur Jones relinquished the club presidency to Ted Shaw.
