A tree commemorates George Naismith, club professional golfer.  Shortly after the move to St. Johns Wood, George Naismith was appointed Professional to Riversdale, a position he held for some 34 years. A fine golfer, Naismith was Victorian Professional Champion in 1932 and 1934 and won the Australian Open in 1937.

Apart from his outstanding golfing record, George Naismith is well known as the early mentor of two later golfing greats Peter Thomson and David Graham, both of whom were Assistant Professionals at Riversdale.
