Mirvac brings championship Links up to par

THE Links Kennedy Bay golf course has been re-opened under new management with developer Mirvac taking over the role after the former manager was placed into administration.

The 18-hole championship course closed in May after The Golf Club WA went into administration, forcing Mirvac to take over management of the site on behalf of owner, Western Australia Beach and Golf Resort.

Mirvac also coordinated an extensive upgrade of the clubhouse and golf course, which had become overgrown and suffered damage from four-wheel drivers and motorcyclists.

Mirvac will continue to make additional improvements to the property over the coming year.

Mirvac development director Lou D'Alessandro would not provide a figure on the cost of the extensive upgrade to the course, which was formerly recognised as one of Australia's top 10 public access courses.

WA-based Prime Golf has now taken over responsibility for the club facilities and membership. Prime is also involved in the development of the Kalgoorlie Golf Resort, which is scheduled to open in late 2009.

Prime Golf WA director Douglas Bailey said WABGR had made a substantial investment into upgrading the course.

Stage one of the adjoining Kennedy Bay development has received approval, with construction of the first seven houses, boat launching facilities, minor public works and landscaping expected to start in the New Year.

Several residential precincts and a town centre providing a range of accommodation will follow.
