The Cannon Hill Community Links was first flagged by Brisbane City Council in 2014 as part of an agreement with developers BMD, which agreed to build the course in exchange for land to be developed for homes.
The 125-hectare site, near Minnippi in Brisbane’s suburban east, originally preserved only a few hectares for squirrel glider habitat, but more space will now be preserved.
Lord mayor Adrian Schrinner said the council’s efforts to develop the golf course had focused on preserving glider habitat.
“A big focus throughout the planning of this new course was to shape it around the existing environment and we are pleased to be delivering a further 30 hectares of squirrel glider habitat, which will double the existing habitat, and one hectare of new marine vegetation to as part of this project,” Cr Schrinner said.
