Have your say on the future of Moore Park Golf (Closes 10 April)

POSTED ON March 28, 2024 @ 2:37 pm

The public can now have a say on the future of Moore Park Golf following the New South Wales Government’s announcement that proposed changes to part of Moore Park South, including reducing the highly popular public golf course to nine holes.

Hosted on the Centennial Parklands website HERE, consultation with the public is open until April 10, with the discussion paper on the proposal, also available via the link.

Members of the public can enter a submission via email, complete a short survey or attend pop-up sessions to voice their opinions on the proposed future of what is one of Australia’s busiest public golf facilities.

Currently home to an 18-hole public course, three-tier driving range, short-game practice areas and Sydney Golf Academy, Moore Park welcomes more than 500,000 users per year. Eighteen-hole rounds account for more than 80 percent of 90,000-plus annual rounds, with retaining 18 holes in the survey requiring respondents to select “other”.

The current options at the facility, including the 18-hole course, has allowed the Sydney Golf Academy to flourish, with the 27,418 students in 2022/23, ranging from beginners to experienced players partaking in introductory programs and individual lessons that represent a 78 percent increase from 2019.

Moore Park Golf is also a profitable asset for the State and contributes significantly to the $527 million of economic benefit golf delivers to the Sydney Metropolitan Area annually.

In its current form, it creates environmental benefits such as protecting and enhancing native vegetation, urban cooling, flood and stormwater management, water filtration and purification and carbon sequestration, essential for highly urbanised areas.
