i have a copy of the masterplan on my PC at home.

It was current about 2 months ago.

Truely horrific stuff if it does go ahead.

Moe, when did you last play at Woodlands?

Next thing will be the Yarra Yarra resort, with the clubhouse turned into a Casino and resort style re-bunkering and lakes carved for the earth required to create the mounding...

How did that information become public ohmy.gif

There must be a leak.

I don't think anymore ground works have been done.
A mate saw Clayton & Sloan looking around Woodlands
recently, said they were comparing the design of acouple
of holes.
Pretty sure they're on the Oz open advisery committee ?
Wlands 100th b/day 2013 ???

Anyone know anything ???

forgot about this thread.

got the masterplan here, looks like it was current 2 years ago, not months. But I'm told this is the one still being considered.

Of interesting note is the second pdf with the overhead layout and also the proposed strategic changes to individual holes on the first pdf.

Thanx 4 that Thommo.

There are some excellent quotes on the 2nd file.
- Construct 'Woodlands Style' checkmounds
- New Wetland area
- Enhance drainage by creating weltand
- Dwarf heathland plants

So is Woodlands going to become a 'wetlands' resort course, or a South London 'heathland' course, or what ?

Here's another quote from a concerned patron with reciprocal rights, "Leave the bloody thing along."

pointless changes are exactly that - why do they do it?

Sadly, as mentioned previously, alot of these boards get carried away with leaving the place in better shape than they found it... but in the end, most seem to do the opposite. sad.gif

All pointless.

Grant must not have much in the pipeline to be pushing this so hard.

I do believe that Woodlands have tabled a bid to host the Australian Open, which would also coincide with the club's centenary...

I believe that advice is being sought on the 2nd, but it has nothing to do with the "Master Plan".

Maintenance sheds have been removed from the area on the left of the 2nd fairway, so its all pretty open out there. I think some advice is being sought on some of the options available ...

I suppose if the research is based on current gallery numbers at Moonah Links, then holding the 500 odd spectators is no longer a constraint. wink.gif

IMO, Woodlands could never hold an Aus Open. There's not enough room.

Of the members that I have spoken to, the general consensus is that they would rather spend money on the clubhouse than the course. Looking at the club house and the change rooms I tend to agree with them.

I just hope they don't butcher the course.

On the contrary Elizabeth - i think it could hold an Aus Open. let's face it - if Grange in QLD can host it, anyone can. The best thing about an Oz open @ WGC would be that the holes are close enough together to ensure patrons can access many different holes very quickly (a bit like Huntingdale).
