Manly Golf Club open for play

On July 13, The Manly Golf Club in Sydney opened the final stage of their new course. Over the past 3 years The Manly Golf Club has undergone a major transformation involving the rebuilding of the entire course. The north and south paddocks are now known as the North Links and the South Links. Prior to construction a complicated planning process was undertaken to enable the course to be re routed as most of the site is in a floodway. A new system of creeks and lakes was introduced to harvest water and to manage flood flows. Extensive revegetation using indigenous plants has created a distinctive new character which has been well received by the members.
