Melbourne’s Eastern Golf Club has announced it’s nine-hole par-3 course will be called “Shark Waters by The Eastern Golf Club”.
Opening this spring and designed by Greg Norman Golf Course Design, Shark Waters has been developed to showcase the spectacular beauty of the wetlands, continuing the club’s vision to have a course facility that complements the stunning natural environment of the surrounding landscape.
While Shark Waters will have a set of designated tee markers on each hole, the exact routing will be largely left to the imagination of the individual, giving them the ability to tailor their own challenges and games. The ‘figure 8’ design flow of the course will provide avid golfers with a variety of shot shapes, taking into consideration the daily playing conditions.
The Shark Waters green construction will replicate the 27-hole championship course, with the maintained Grand Prix couch grass kept at fairway-cut height. The flexibility of the design will allow golfers to play upwards of 150 metres on each of the nine holes, with an approximate playing time of 60-75 minutes. All Eastern Golf Club ‘Golf’ membership categories will be able to play Shark Waters.
“We are very excited about the addition of Shark Waters by The Eastern Golf Club to our range of available golfing experiences,” said general manager Ben Telley. “It will offer members and guests who have time constraints with a shorter playing option whilst providing an environment that will test even the best golfers.
“The flexibility and freedom of the routing is perfectly suited to all levels of golfer, from juniors and beginners, through to the professional toning their game.”
Shark Waters by The Eastern Golf Club’s spring opening coincide with the return of the club’s Friday night ‘Nine and Dine’ that ran during the daylight saving months of October to March and saw a great response from members looking for new, family friendly golf experiences. Enquiries for corporate golf days and executive retreats incorporating Shark Waters are now being taken.
