As at March 2015 planning for the Golf Preserve of Seven Mile Beach is well in train.
Perhaps the single most exciting prospect of the Golf Preserve of Seven Mile Beach is that this space will be used by many different people/community groups.
Retail golfers, assorted local football codes and their respective clubs, joggers, walkers, recreational horse riders,............. and continued low impact sand mining (in a neighbouring area) means the space is utilised to the benefit of all of community.
The area that is zoned as recreation is open to the public. The golf course is a public venue. The sports fields and the tracks & trails will be public access too.
The golf course will be marketing itself to interstate and international visitors (in fact it has been for some time) given the course will be of exceptional quality, standard and therefore will be....quite unique.
Local retail-golfers will be welcome to play the venue at local user pays rate at all times throughout the year. It is anticipated however, that over 92% of all green fees will be generated from interstate and off shore visitors. The influx of "new money" makes the golf course a significant asset in terms of its economic-multiplier capacity.
Perhaps the most special multiplier will be employment opportunities; in particular employment for Tasmania's youth.
More information about the Golf Preserve's development will be passed on throughout the year.
In a recent Inside Golf Magazine article Foundation Founder Mat Goggin said Hobart’s need to establish itself as a golf destination that can feed off the success of Barnbougle Dunes in the state’s north.
“The current courses in Hobart aren’t going to encourage golfers to get in a car and leave Barnbougle Dunes. With Seven Mile Beach, you will see people looking to start in Hobart and finish in Bridport or vice versa. With a great course in the south, it will also open up opportunities for a course on the east and west coast. Throw in a trip to King Island and you have a golf tourism experience that can compete with anything in the world.”
As a potential significant beneficiary the MGF looks forward to further developments regarding the Golf Preserve of Seven Mile Beach.
