The first fairways, tees and greens at Brisbane’s first new public golf course in 70 years have taken shape in the city’s east, with work under way on the $25 million, 18-hole course.

And, in the wake of the recent announcement Brisbane was a preferred site for the 2032 Olympic Games, the professional-grade golf course at Cannon Hill could be a potential Olympic venue.

The public golf course, off Creek Road, will be named Minnippi Golf Course after the local Jagera elder Tommy Minnippi, the “king of the Tingalpa tribe”.

The Minnippi Golf Course will open in mid-2022, about 12 months after the planned closure of the Victoria Park Golf Course before the first stage of its major transformation.

“This golf course will be transferred across to Brisbane City Council on the day it’s completed and will become a public golf course,” he said.

He said work on the course was progressing well.

“A lot of the work is already done and we are already seeing the [fairway and tee] grasses being laid.”

Cr Schrinner said the Minnippi Golf Course was a potential Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games venue, given the sport was once again on the Olympic schedule.

During a site visit on Wednesday, lord mayor Adrian Schrinner said the St Lucia public golf course would be able to cater for the golfers unable to use the Victoria Park course after it closed.

While the Minnippi course was to be funded primarily by developer BMD, Cr Schrinner said it would be open to the public.
