Following the recent completion of Club Mandalay’s 18-hole golf course, celebrations continued this week as Mandalay broke ground on its crowning feature, the $8 million “Club Mandalay” golf clubhouse and recreational facility.
The clubhouse facility will complement the already playable Peter Thomson designed, 18-hole golf course, located in Beveridge, north of Melbourne. Residents, members and golfers alike will enjoy the well appointed bar and bistro facilities, Pro Shop, function room and locker rooms. The Clubhouse will also provide residents with exclusive access to the fully equipped gym, 25m heated outdoor swimming pool and kids’ water play area.
Architecturally designed by Bayley Ward, Club Mandalay will maximise views over the golf course and parkland surrounding parklands with floor-to-ceiling windows and an abundance of natural lighting to complement the building’s natural materials and neutral palette.
Avid Sports Management, led by PGA Professional and Managing Director James Cooper, will operate Club Mandalay. James is no stranger to the opening of golf facilities of this calibre after being instrumental in the opening and development of Moonah Links, The Dunes, Natadola Bay in Fiji and more recently Golf Central Brisbane Airport.
The Par 72 golf course measures 6,285 metres from the black tees and offers spectacular vistas and superb playing surfaces. The Mandalay layout takes players on a journey through the beautifully landscaped parklands and the multiple tee options that offer players of all skill levels an enjoyable challenge. The strategically positioned and visually spectacular bunkers will be one of the more memorable facets of the Mandalay Golf Course.
“The golf course at Mandalay has grown-in beautifully and has matured well beyond its years. The rolling fairways are reminiscent of a Peter Thomson design, and reflect his loves for links golf. The green shapes and bunkers are also incredibly unique, and I believe a standout feature of the Mandalay Golf Course. The clubhouse will put the finishing touches on what is sure to be an awarding winning facility,” said Cooper
“Club Mandalay is a fantastic addition to golf in Victoria and in particular to Melbourne’s North. We have been delighted by the feedback from players who have already experienced the course, and we are already gaining keen interest for membership and corporate events.” Cooper added
