On course for mini golf at popular spot
The addition of a mini-golf course is among the upgrades currently being undertaken at Point Walter Golf Course.
Belgravia Leisure, managers of the Point Walter Golf Course, will invest over $1.5 million to transform the council asset into a destination for families and fun.
Construction of the 18-hole mini-golf course is underway and is expected to be completed by May, with a premium hospitality offering and upgrades to the traditional course also among planned works for the facility at Bicton’s Blackwell Reach.
Planners say the miniature course is being designed to preserve remnant trees and maximise biodiversity, with artful use of stone, water and nature in garden-like surrounds.
Belgravia Leisure’s State Manager Rohan Gunton said the company was excited about creating an asset for the local community that will make a significant contribution to recreation, leisure and local culture at Point Walter.
“Our goal is to create a destination that brings the local community together while attracting new visitors to the area,” he said.
Belgravia Leisure chief executive Nick Cox said the changes would provide new opportunities for golfers, experienced and otherwise.
“With the large number of families that already enjoy the Point Walter precinct for picnics and recreation, there is significant opportunity to engage new users to get into golf through an inclusive family destination,” he said.
