Nestled within the green hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the Maleny Golf Club’s quality, 9-hole course provides visitors with a picturesque, “golf-as-it-began” playing experience.
From the elevated 1st Tee players are presented with a panoramic view of the links-style course and an ideal vantage point from which to assess the golfing challenge ahead.
The Graham Papworth-designed Par 35 course, is comprised of six Par 4s, two Par 3s and one Par 5. Players will encounter some stern tests of golf along the way, including a penal kikuyu rough for those who stray from the well-defined fairways.
The club, which only opened to the public in July 2015, has cleverly combined two shipping containers to establish a rustic temporary HQ which adds to the overall experience.
Visitors can enjoy a snack and a refreshment after a round on the covered rear terrace while taking in the spectacular vista.
The course has been built to a high standard by a team of dedicated volunteers under the direction of course Superintendent Mick McCombe using the latest agronomic technology and knowhow to construct the Tiff Dwarf greens.
McCombe’s diligence in transforming what was once a weed-ridden old dairy farm into a quality golf course praised by all who play it, earned him the Queensland Golf Industry’s 2016 superintendent’s achievement award. Mick subsequently received the national AGCSA Excellence in Golf Course Management Award and Australian Golf Digest Superintend of the Year Award.
These prestigious awards complemented the Queensland Government’s Sports Volunteer of the Year award received in 2015 by club President Dr Max Whitten in recognition of his leadership, commitment, drive and enterprise in facilitating construction of the course.
So why not combine a morning of Hinterland shopping, art gallery hopping or walking with a round of golf, followed by a leisurely lunch together at one of the local eateries – or better still make a weekend of it?
