Berwick Montuna Golf Club
PROJECT: Installation of sealed cart paths
STATUS: Funding committed
In the rolling hills of Guys Hill, 44km east of Melbourne, lies Berwick Montuna Golf Club. At the foot of the Dandenong Ranges and alongside Cardinia Creek, the standout features of this course are its beauty and its undulating terrain. The disadvantage in the past has been the difficulty for many members and visitors to safely walk the course in some places, especially in winter.
The announcement of funding approval via a pre-federal government election promise to address the issue was welcomed by the club.
Club President Rob Savage says planning for the paths is well underway, with a concept design being drawn up by renowned golf course architectural firm Thomson and Perrett, working in conjunction with the club’s Paths Projects Committee.
“We are fortunate to have established a wonderful relationship with Ross Perrett and he and his staff have been very helpful in coming up with ideas that will mean we deliver the very best outcome for the money that has been committed.”
Mr Savage paid particular tribute to Federal La Trobe MP Jason Wood for his part in securing Federal Government funding for the project.
“Jason has been very supportive from the outset. He visited the course on several occasions and grasped very quickly that we are an important community facility in a rapidly expanding area that has an obvious need for more and better recreational spaces. We are very grateful to him and the Pitch In campaign.”
“We will deliver the very best outcome for the money that has been committed.”
