We have long admired the two courses at Rosebud, in particular the original Old Course, and have often wondered about their potential. They feature some excellent ground to play golf over, with sand and undulations in abundance and whilst the quality of the holes is generally very good, they fail to attract the same attention of the better-known courses to their North. The formation of a Masterplan will help to address this, creating a long-term vision to elevate the standard of golf.
We have a long history of playing golf at Rosebud and also a long relationship with the Course Superintendent – Ian Todd – with whom we undertook a very similar program of course improvements at Victoria Golf Club. All too often the lines between design and maintenance become blurred so it is important the architects and course superintendent have a close working relationship. Rosebud is been a tremendous club with a loyal membership and we have no doubt a well executed plan has the potential to see a course ranked inside the top 50 in the country.
Scheduled to commence late 2017
