We all grew up playing a lot of junior and amateur golf at both Peninsula and Kingswood. Peninsula with its two courses (North and South) and Kingwood had been through a number of design changes over many years including our own work on both Peninsula courses a decade ago.
In 2014 the two clubs merged and agreed to move to the Peninsula site, something allowing for the complete rebuilding of both courses. The land, especially on the North side is perfect for golf with a sand base, ideal undulations and perfect vegetation.
On both courses the holes play along the same original 1960s corridors but with completely new greens and the distinctive sandbelt bunkers made so famous by MacKenzie and Morcom’s work at Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath the courses. When completed in early 2018 every green, bunker and tee will have been reconstructed, along with numerous design enhancements, a series of new creeks, extensive drainage, a new irrigation system, vegetation work, new playing surfaces and practice facilities.
Once complete we believe this will be among the top handful of clubs in the Country.
Scheduled for completion in 2018
