Maleny’s new golf course opened in style
After almost 15 years of planning, stage one of Maleny’s community golf course has finally been completed with the first nine holes formally opened today.
Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson hit the ceremonial opening tee shot as a host of dignitaries, including club patron Andrew Powell MP, Member for Fisher Mal Brough, Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay, and many of the Maleny Golf Club’s 400 members watched on.
“What was largely an agricultural site, with some areas overgrown by thick lantana, has been transformed into a facility that the whole community can now enjoy,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“Maleny now has a valuable asset that will be appreciated by residents and golfers from Maleny and outside the town for many years to come.
“What a great setting it is for golf. I’m sure it’s going to be a very popular addition to our region’s sporting facilities.”
