Tasmania’s new 7 Mile Beach golf course looks like it will be spectacular and include something unique in world golf.
Australia has a bunch of brand new golf courses in construction right now, and the trickle of photos on social media from the team constructing Hobart’s new 7 Mile Beach golf course has been a thrill for lovers of golf architecture.
Matt Goggin and the golf design crew from Clayton, Devries and Pont have cleared the site lying just east of Hobart of the introduced radiata pine forest to reveal an incredible place to build a golf course.
The past few months have seen the course routing slowly being shaped into the place that should have Australian golfers very excited.
This week another little nugget of information about the course itself was revealed by Mike Clayton after a photo of the site of the 8th green was revealed.
“The right green anyway,” Clayton responded to the post which led a number of people to wonder if he meant the “correct” green or the “not left” green.
The confusion was cleared up shortly after when Clayton revealed the hole would in fact have two greens.
“Once they cleared the trees it was quickly obvious there were two great green sites. And both work with the hole – a long par 4.”
If you find two perfect places to build a green, why not build both?!
7 Mile Beach Golf Course will be a public golf facility and is due to open in the second half of 2023. In the meantime, keep track of all the latest updates via the 7 Mile Beach website and Twitter and Instagram feeds.
Good morning from Seven Mile Beach.
