MALENY Golf Club has a new “infinity edge” practice green and a permanent home for its fleet of 24 golf carts following the recent completion of a purpose-built storage shed as part of a key infrastructure project.
Some spare space in the shed, which can hold up to 32 carts, is being leased to members with carts while the balance will be fitted out to provide temporary office accommodation until a new clubhouse can be built.
The cart shed is sited on the club’s old practice green area so the project had to incorporate relocation of the 10th tees and provision of a new concrete access path to make space for construction of the new green.
The club’s general manager Stephen Porter said the new facilities reflected Maleny Golf Club’s growth in popularity as a quality golfing destination and an “outstanding effort” by a group of volunteers whose valuable contribution had kept costs down.
This included donations of both time and materials.
“One of the other great benefits we’ve been able to deliver is on-course space we’ve freed up for some 14 privately-owned golf carts which will also help defray our construction costs,” Porter said.
