The 125-year memorial book of the Rosendaelsche Golf Club (from Heath to Holes) mentions:

On Sunday 17 February 1895 at three o'clock in the afternoon, the gentlemen F.H. baron Huyssen van Kattendijke, Mr.A.A. del Court van Krimpen, Jan baron van Tuyll van Serooskerke, R.J. Rutgers van Rozenburg, M. van Pallandt, H. d'Abo, S. van Limburg Stirum, J. Creutz, A. baron van Nagel and F.J.W. baron van Pallandt' met in hotel de PaysBas in Arnhem. Mr Huyssen van Kattendijke had taken the initiative to establish the golf club'.

Before the Rosendaelsche Golfclub settled at its present location, the club played on a piece of land that must have been situated on the border area of the Rosendael manor and the grounds of the Velpsche Geërfden near the Emmapiramide. In 1908, the Rosendaelsche Golfclub moved to the Delhuijzen estate on the Apeldoornseweg in Arnhem.

The clubhouse was the hunting lodge of Aalbrecht del Court van Krimpen; in 1939 it was rebuilt and extended.

The son of Aalbrecht del Court van Krimpen, Gerard Martinus (Gerry) was a very good golfer and won many tournaments both nationally and internationally. In 1915, Gerry del Court van Krimpen won the Dutch Open as an amateur! In the period of WW II Gerry became president of the Rosendaelsche Golfclub. When the occupying forces ordered him to supply wood, it was his decision to cut down the wood around Rosendaelsche Golf Club in such a way as to create space for the second nine holes. The realisation did not take place until after his death.

In 1978 it was decided to build a new clubhouse. On Friday 24 August 1979 the official foundation stone was laid with on it the motto "Qui va droit ne manque", originating from Johan van Arnhem, Lord of Rosendael, who used this motto. On 17 May 1980 the new club house is festively opened. 

Since 1980 several major international matches have been organised at the Rosendaelsche. In 1982 the St. Andrews Trophee was played for the eight best amateurs of the continent and the eight best amateurs of Great Britain & Ireland. In 1983 the European Country Team Championship (ELTK) for girls took place. Winner was the England team with Laura Davies among others. In 1984 the Rosendaelsche Golfclub organised the 65th International Open Golf Championship of the Netherlands (Dutch Open for professionals). Participants in this Dutch Open were amongst others Bernhard Langer & Lee Trevino. Bernhard Langer won the Dutch Open and during the tournament he set a course record which has stood for more than 35 years. In 1988 the Volmac Ladies Open was played. The Frenchwoman Marie-Laure de Lorenzi Taya won the tournament. Many National Opens followed. In 2008 the Men's National Open was played. In 2013 the National Open for Ladies and Gentlemen took place on the Rosendaelsche golf club. The winner was 17-year-old Dewi Weber and the winner was Inder van Weerelt (then 33 years old); Inder has played on the European Tour, is, among other things, the swing coach of Wil Besseling and can regularly be heard as a commentator on Ziggo Sport Golf.

In 2021 Rosendaelsche Golf Club hosted the Big Green Egg Open; the first Dutch event since 2015 of the Ladies European Tour. Thanks to the many words of praise for the course from the organisers and the players, Rosendaelsche Golfclub will once again be the Dutch venue for this golf spectacle in 2022.
