New golf course - for families and fun

Posted: 11am 01 Aug 2022

Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club will soon open a new course designed for families and having fun.

An 18-hole mini golf course is being built behind the clubhouse, but clearly visible from the balcony at the Bribie Island venue.

It is expected to be ready by the end of August with shorter and longer holes. Each will have two cups – one being a little easier than the other.

Pacific Harbour’s aim is to provide a cheaper and quicker alternative to the traditional game, which will appeal to both children and adults.

For whole family

“We wanted to do something the whole family could get involved with that did not take a lot of time,” Pacific Harbour General Manager Will Keiler said.

“We went in with the sole goal of providing entertainment for everyone.

“From young to old, you don't need to be able to play traditional golf to play mini golf.

“It's about having fun and spending time with your friends and family in a safe location.

Almost ready

“There are not a lot of these activities on the island which means people have to travel more. We wanted to provide another reason to come to Bribie.”

Mr Keiler said construction work on the mini golf course is “progressing well” with the concrete laid and grass being installed.

“Seeing it all come together has been a great experience, and our team check on it daily, patiently waiting for it to be done,” Mr Keiler added.

For those wishing to go a step further and try the traditional game of golf, Pacific Harbour has a driving range and professionals offering lessons for beginners.

Designed by Ross Watson and taking two years to build, Pacific Harbour’s main links-style course opened in 2006, with water as a central theme.

It has been acclaimed as one of South East Queensland’s finest and last week hosted the prestigious $11,000 Legends Pro-Am tournament.

Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club is at 141-159 Avon Ave, Banksia Beach, Bribie Island.
