Mini course opens at Wem­b­ley WEM­B­LEY GOLF COURSE HISTORY

Western Suburbs Weekly - - -

THE much-an­tic­i­pated Wem­b­ley mini golf course had its grand open­ing yes­ter­day.

The $3.5 mil­lion, 18-hole course is part of the Wem­b­ley Golf Course up­grades in­clud­ing restau­rant 300 Acres, func­tion fa­cil­ity Am­brose Es­tate and chil­dren’s play­ground.

Am­brose Es­tate re­placed the Fair­way Tav­ern, which was built in the 1960s and de­mol­ished in mid-2015 to make way for the devel­op­ment.

Cam­bridge Mayor Keri Shannon said coun­cil­lors had a test run of the new course and Cr So­nia Grin­ceri man­aged a hole-in-one at one of the trick­ier holes. The Wem­b­ley Downs Golf Course Ltd was reg­is­tered as a com­pany in 1933 and was granted a lease of land of 150 acres north of the Boule­vard on the edge of the City Beach Es­tate part of the En­dow­ment Lands/Limekilns Es­tate. The lease was for 10 years and the com­pany was to pay a pep­per­corn rent. Author­ity was given to pro­ceed at once to clear the land and the City En­gi­neer to widen the plank road to 15 feet.
