WA Walpole Solf Goes Green In Australia First

Published on : Monday, May 2, 2016

walpole_golf_courseAustralia’s first 18-hole synthetic green golf course has opened in Walpole, in the State’s South West.

 

The $500,000 project received Royalties for Regions funding through the South West Development Commission and also involved the Shire of Manjimup, the Department of Sport and Recreation, the Walpole Golf Club and volunteers.

 

The Envirofill synthetics are considered more environmentally friendly because they do not require watering, fertiliser or binding agents – particular considerations due to the proximity of Walpole-Nornalup National Park and other protected areas.

 

Walpole Country Club President Wayne Dumbrell said he expected a boost in visitors to the club wanting to experience the unique greens.

 

“The synthetic greens are similar to grass greens – they allow for better chipping and putting reliability and are able to withstand the Great Southern weather conditions and heavy usage during competitions,” he said.

 

“The club is in a spectacular location overlooking the Walpole and Nornalup inlets, and it’s essential to protect one of the most pristine environments in Australia.”

 

The greens will be officially launched on May 27-28 with special guests Wayne Smith, Stephen Dartnall and Shani Waugh.
