The Golf Australia Library is part of the Golf Australia Museum Collection, and holds a wide range of golf publications including golf books of all categories, Australian golf club histories, periodicals and magazines and a small amount of film and video.

It is not generally accessible to the public, but most items can be made available for research purposes.

In conjunction with William G Clemow, a Queensland golf historian and researcher, a searchable database of Australian golf books, including details of where in Australia each book is held, has been compiled - click here. The holdings of several Australian collections of golf publications are included.
