Bright New future for Salamander Bays Horizons Golf Resort

POSTED ON November 14, 2017 @ 8:58 pm

HORIZONS Golf Resort proudly reopened the ninth hole this week after extensive works were carried out on the course over the past 12 months.

Port Stephens Mayor Ryan Palmer was on hand to cut the ribbon and take the first shot off the tee in what can be considered a difficult and challenging hole to play.

Horizons Director Bob Westbury told News Of The Area, “It is an over water championship drive off the tee with a right to left signature.”

He believes it is possible for A grade players to reach the green from their drive.

 

Peter Rickard of Horizons Golf Resort has had a busy year with the renovations.

“We are really proud to see the results of the major works which we have undertaken including the rebuilding of the green and fairway on the ninth,” he said.

“In the last 12 months Horizons has invested over $500,000 in the course, including the renovations to the ninth and the installation of a new watering and pumping system.”

The Horizons Cafe and Bar and Function Centre has also seen work in recent months, with renovations and a new menu on offer.
