Mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar golf re­sort re­de­vel­op­ment

Inside Golf - - Industry News -

THE first stage of a mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar re­de­vel­op­ment of Mildura Golf Re­sort (Vic) com­menced last month. The im­prove­ments to the golf course are aimed at de­vel­op­ing the course as one of the premier cour­ses along the Murray River, while res­i­den­tial nodes within the course re­de­vel­op­ment will pro­vide home own­ers with a unique liv­ing environment and ac­cess to all the fa­cil­i­ties of the re­sort.

David Mcphee, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the Mildura Golf Re­sort re­de­vel­op­ment sub-com­mit­tee said “this project is unique to the re­gion and will pro­vide lo­cal peo­ple with an op­por­tu­nity to build their new home in a high amenity environment that has many life­style ben­e­fits”.

The first stage in­volves the con­struc­tion of one new golf hole and mod­i­fi­ca­tion to two ex­ist­ing holes on the course. The stag­ing of the de­vel­op­ment is de­signed to en­sure that a com­plete 18-hole course is al­ways avail­able to golfers, with new holes be­ing con­structed be­fore any al­ter­ations to ex­ist­ing holes.

Davey Shearer Golf De­sign has been ap­pointed by the club to de­sign and co­or­di­nate the re­de­vel­op­ment of the golf course.

Renowned Aus­tralian golfer Bob Shearer, who is part of the de­sign team, said “our brief was to en­hance the qual­ity of the ex­ist­ing course to make it one of the premier golf cour­ses along the Murray River. How­ever our ob­jec­tive is also to en­sure that the course is de­signed and set up to pro­vide a plea­sur­able ex­pe­ri­ence for all lev­els of golfers, so they keep com­ing back to play” he said.

Once the first stage of the golf course im­prove­ments are com­pleted then the first res­i­den­tial stage of Fair­ways Mildura ( com­pris­ing 30 va­cant free­hold al­lot­ments) will be de­vel­oped and of­fered for sale.

Mar­cus Guthrie, gen­eral man­ager of Mildura Golf Re­sort, in­di­cated there has been strong in­ter­est from within the club’s mem­ber­ship group along with other users of the re­sort fa­cil­i­ties, who have ex­pressed a de­sire to live on course at Fair­ways Mildura.

“The Mildura Golf Re­sort is also cel­e­brat­ing its cen­te­nary in 2012, so next year will be an ex­cit­ing time, re­flect­ing on the past and em­brac­ing the next phase of the re­sort’s evo­lu­tion. The golf re­sort has come a long way since Hur­tle Peglar pro­vided land over 100 years ago for Mildura peo­ple to en­joy the no­ble game of golf.” Mr Guthrie said
