Oxley Golf Club commence David Pelz designed mini golf project (video update September)

POSTED ON September 11, 2021 @ 2:47 pm

Oxley hole 9After close to 9 months of planning and investigation, the club has recently commenced the construction of a unique mini-golf facility positioned on what used to be the 9th hole (Par 3).

Unique design by Pelz

The mini-golf facility will be one of the largest built-in Australia, just over 3200m2 which includes 18 mini-golf holes along with a further 9 hole practice putting green that has full disability access which was identified as an essential component of the facility.

Another key point of difference is that the design has been completed by a legend of the golf industry, Dave Pelz, with this his first design in Australia.

Dave is a renowned short game coach of many world-class golfers including Phil Michelson. Dave in conjunction with former Nick Faldo Course Designer, Paul Jansen have designed a truly unique facility that will appeal to non golfers and golfers alike.Oxley mini golf map

Other part of the project

There are various other components to the overall project as well, including the construction of a new cart path and landscaping around the rear of the club house to provide a safe and direct route for golfers. Another benefit will be the impressive outlook from the new members lounge, previously the club’s function room, providing a lush vista overlooking the course.

The remodeled lounge will showcase a new flyover roof over the upgraded deck area. Inside, the members lounge will also be upgraded and include bifold doors to create an inside/outside facility, one that will fit neatly with the beautiful Queensland weather.

Other parts include an upgrade to the men’s locker room facilities, increased capacity for the current car park area, further landscaping around the club house, construction of a replacement golf hole and a mains power upgrade.

The mini golf facility construction commenced in mid June and is currently scheduled to open late Nov 2021 and the other upgrades will be completed during this time.
