Midlands Golf Club’s housing development given green light

POSTED ON September 2, 2019 @ 6:07 pm

The first stage of the development could be finished by February 2020.

It is part of the larger 111-lot development along Heinz Lane, with developers Villawood also recently submitting subdivision plans for the remaining 78 lots to council.

Villawood’s general manager Julian Perez said there’s “quite a deal of work to do” to complete the first stage, including creating drainage at the site and a new intersection on Heinz Lane.

The development facing the course’s 14th fairway was engineered by the Midlands Golf Club in 2017, as a “financial injection to shore up our future and also upgrade the facilities”, according to Midlands board member Robert Moore last year.

A master plan for Midlands Golf Club – which houses the Ballarat RSL and the Midlands Bowls Club – has already been created.

The meals and hospitality areas will be upgraded from the receipts of the development sales, with a new alfresco bistro expansion, new bar and outdoor areas and additional office space.

“We see the golf club as a real asset,” Mr Perez said.
