Maleny Golf Club
15 Porters Lane, North Maleny
Nestled within the verdant hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the Maleny Golf Club’s quality course provides visitors with a picturesque, ‘golf-as-it-began’ playing experience.
From the elevated first tee, players are presented with a panoramic view of the links-style course and an ideal vantage point from which to assess the golfing challenge ahead.
The Par 69 course is comprised of two Par 5s, 10 Par 4s and 6 Par 3s featuring unique revetted greenside bunkering, Tiffdwarf Bermuda Grass greens and Kikuyu fairways within a peaceful, scenic hinterland setting.
Maleny’s innovative design takes full advantage of some excellent natural assets – gentle rolling hills, well-drained volcanic soil, existing pastures, surrounding rainforest and some wetland.
The course has been built to a high standard under the direction of course superintendent Mick McCombe using the latest agronomic technology and know-how.
Supported by a band of dedicated volunteers, Mr McCombe has transformed what was once a weed-ridden old dairy farm into a quality golf course praised by all who play it.
The club, which opened in 2015, has cleverly combined two shipping containers to establish a rustic HQ incorporating a deck and marquee where players can enjoy a post-round beverage or two.
President Jeff Kruse said Maleny Golf Club's Par 69 layout had, for both economic and ecological reasons, drawn inspiration from the award-winning Machrihanish Dunes course on Scotland's west coast and its motto "golf the way it began".
Visitors are always welcome on the course located just a few minutes from Maleny. The golf club also has clubs, pull buggies and motorised carts for hire.
