There are 2 new developments West of Melbourne that I am aware of,

1. Forest Resort at Creswick where Tony Cashmore is re-designing the current layout.

2. Lake Federation where two -18 hole layouts are planned. One to be designed by Bob Shearer and the other by Pacific Coast Design.

There may be another but those two are the only one's I have read anything about.

Hope this info is helpful, and I can give you website details if you want them.

That thing (mercifully) died its deserved death last year some time. The proposed site was an absolutely flat and windy clay wasteland near Burrumbeet. It was probably to be Ballarat Golf Club's new home, but they have since decided to build adjacent to where they are now.

Eynesbury is a former sheep and cattle farming property much closer to Melbourne than Creswick or Ballarat.

Titters, I think that is the Graham Marsh one.

Woah, thanks Jim, I wasn't aware of any impending Marsh work outside of Bass and the Frog. So he goes from no VIC courses to three in no time.

It is a linear corridor routing through real estate, so it won't have the benefit like his other two new projects in Victoria of dedicated golf course property that isn't lined with housing.

Good to see the sensible plan to make it public access. If times are this tight for courses and they lack enough patrons, no use excluding people.

It is a Marsh project 18 holes about to go to tender and construction expected to start in October I think. Villa World are involved with a private family company I believe.

Apologies. Despite the club's rejection, the developers have decided to go before council with their proposed Lake Federation after all. Though without a golfing tennant, it is hard to see it go ahead without something big changing. 36 holes of public access / resort looks financially doomed, and a new golf club on top of the battling ones already in the Ballarat area doesn't seem wise either. Apparently, Buninyong is on its knees.

tithers,

sounds a little similiar to twin creeks project in western sydney, marsh design through and around real estate (though blocks are 1 acre minimum).
At this stage not public access although given the Macquarie Links experience I'm guessing it will be a matter of time before accessability becomes less exclusive. This one is to be managed by Troon.

Yeah, Twin Creeks is opening soonish, isn't it? I walked it in February, but didn't gain as much as I'd thought. Is Macquarie Links now not so exclusive? I knew it allowed corporate bookings, but can visitors arrange to play too now?

The routing at Eynesbury looks more tight fitting than Lara Croft's top. Most holes look to channel between somebody's back door and their clothes line.

Excavation works will start tomorrow on the golf course at Eynesbury along with the revamp of the heritage listed homestead which will become the clubhouse and, boutique hotel.

I hope this link works. From The Australian last month stating they've started the first course. Not sure if the second course is an eventual certainty or just a vague thought and relying on lots of successful factors.

Tithers - There is a updated web site with a scorecard and Marsh talking about the course layout.

Is this place ever going to open? Presumably they must be experiencing some difficulties?

This is from a Villa World Limited sharemarket release:

Eynesbury
"Villa World Limited is the developer of Eynesbury, a new township currently being created in Melbourne’s west.

Currently 15 holes of the 18 hole golf course are complete, the restoration of the homestead is progressing well and the civil
works for the polo fields have been completed. Works have advanced to such an extent on the golf course and homestead that
both facilities will be operational during the first half of the 2007 calendar year."

Given that the course is located well enough out of town to be quite regional, and therefore won't likely be mixed up in perennially hosting major events, I wonder why on earth they determined that retirees and lifestylers wanted a 6600m course blink.gif

I know that is just the card length off the tips, but some of that will have to be walked by the forward tee players. Barwon Heads has just lengthened about eight holes by building new back tees (none resulting in a longer walk for the rest of us), and is still measuring less than 5900m. Too short? I know I would rather play and stay there for a couple of days than 90-95% of the 6.5km crap tracks.

As usual Tithers you raised some fair points about the development. Why do they have a Par 4 that is 480m blink.gif I stumbled across the updated web site today which has a Hole by Hole Description and updated layout drawings. The link is http://www.eynesbury...y-golf.123.html

Cheers,
RFS.
