GSM To Facilitate The Closure Of Kingston Links On June 30th 2018

Following years of golf operation and functions, the Kingston Links Golf Course will host its final golfers on July 1st, 2018. 

The owners of the 65ha site occupying the golf course have for some time been planning a residential village development within the unique wetland zone. Throughout the time of planning, the ongoing golf operations were managed by Golf Services Management who’ve successfully ushered the facility through an ongoing transition period with the course remaining in good condition all the way through and with virtually no decline in playing numbers. Existing season pass holders have been offered alternative playing arrangements, many of whom have elected to move to other GSM venues located in Melbourne. 

Golf Services Management director Ian Denny remarked that “it has been a wonderful challenge keeping the venue operating to a standard envied by most public golf courses, knowing that the end was always just around the corner. Having previously closed the Park Course for the Amstel Golf Club in Cranbourne certainly gave us valuable experience in what to expect and how to handle the closure given the complexity of balancing staff, marketing and course maintenance.”

Golfers can play the course for the last few weeks in June with $29 green fees offered ALL day Monday to Friday and from 10.30am on weekends.

The Ranfurlie Range Open Its Doors!

The Ranfurlie Golf Club, in conjunction with GSM were proud to announce the official opening of the brand new, state of the art Driving Range in Cranbourne, Victoria.

The objective of the project was to develop a facility with an atmosphere that was attractive to the novice and diehard golfer alike as well as being inclusive of friends and family, by making them feel comfortable at the venue when not participating in golf activities.

After 18 months of careful planning and execution, the result is a unique public golf center featuring 20 bays, all of which have live sport and entertainment playing day and night. The centre includes four unique ‘Premium Bays’, a practice putting green as well as an indoor/outdoor golf academy with highly skilled coaches utilising the latest technology in golf tuition to improve your game.

In mid February, the Range hosted its Opening Celebrations, where a DJ played music and hordes of people enjoyed the facility well into the late evening. Now well and truly into trading 7 days a week, a stage 2 has been scheduled for June which includes auto tee up, radar technology within the bays and 5 colored target greens for evening use.

Golf Services Management features on Seven News in the Sunshine Coast

GSM Golf's Queensland venue, Peregian Golf Course and Driving Range has featured on the Sunshine Coast’s 7 news, highlighting the venue’s embattled past yet bright future.

Facing imminent closure in August 2017, Peregian Golf was liquidated completely and saw many residents risk losing their golf facility on a potentially permanent basis. Subsequently, Golf Services Management stepped in and took a long term view of rejuvenating the venue and ensuring that anyone on the Sunshine Coast or beyond would feel comfortable visiting.

Now almost six months since the take-over, the facility has been revamped completely and new life breathed in to the once dormant landscape. Click HERE to see the full report and to hear Director Ian Denny’s take on what’s still to come.

St Andrew Beach ranked the best public access golf course on the Australian mainland

St Andrews beach has re-affirmed its status as a premier public access golf course, after Golf Australia magazine released 'Australia's Top 100 Public Access Courses For 2017'.

In this edition, St Andrews Beach ranked #5 overall, a national top 5 which is now arguably considered to be the hottest in the golfing world. Leading St Andrews Beach was Ocean Dunes #4, Barnbougle (Lost Farm) #3, Barnbougle (The Dunes) #2 and Cape Wickham #1. With such an incredible list of golf courses across the country, the Top 5 need to be truly sensational and that they are indeed. 

Golf Australia Magazine Top 100 judges offer a snapshot of many judges thoughts when saying:

"St Andrews Beach offers the most affordable, accessible, public, world-class golf in Australia.  The conditioning suits the challenging links perfectly, and the imagination required around the greens is equal to any course in Australia".  (Richard Macafee - Golf Australia Magazine Top 100 Judge and course design connoisseur)

"Value, value, value... great golf at a great price is a strong suit at St Andrews Beach". (Brendan James - Editor Golf Australia Magazine)
