Proposed golf course to feature outline of a great white shark

Proposal for new Port Lincoln golf course features a giant great white shark.
An AdelaideNow story is reporting that the company owned by Olympic gold medallist Dean Lukin is proposing a $300-million development for the South Australian city of Port Lincoln, which includes a golf course that will feature the outline of a giant shark.

Port Lincoln, at the eastern end of the Great Australian Bight is certainly right in the middle of shark territory. If you’re keen to do a bit of shark cage diving, Port Lincoln’s the place to do it, but I can’t help but think they’ve got the golf course idea the wrong way around here.

There is every chance this is just a way to get a little publicity for the project, but I think they’d be better off getting a good course designer on board before deciding a giant great white shark is essential. It looks to me like the whole thing will be very much along the lines of a resort style golf course, so perhaps course design isn’t atop of the agenda.

The outline of a great white shark is probably much better for a golf course proposal than a great white elephant.

Contrary to what most of you may be thinking, Greg Norman’s name has not been linked to the development. His nearest project is across the Spencer Gulf at Port Hughes that has taken quite some time to be completed.
