Start practicing your swing golf gurus because the region’s best mini golf course is set to open soon, and will look epic!
The announcement came as the Mini Golf Hervey Bay Facebook page was launched this week highlighting the start to Stage 1 of the project being built by the Hervey Bay RSL on the corner of Bideford and Truro Streets in Torquay.
It was clear by the hundreds of positive comments and shares on the Facebook page that the course is set to fill a void in the region when it comes to entertainment for locals and tourists alike.
Hervey Bay RSL CEO Jason Lynch said that was always the intention for the long-awaited project.
He said the 2500sqm course was modelled off the very popular Maroochy River Mini Golf at Bli Bli and will feature an additional 800sqm reception area, licensed café, and space for a whole lot of family fun.
The shaded 18-hole course will have the added challenge of a creek running through the course, landscaped humps and hollows, water features, sand traps, and lights for night games.
The mini golf will be open seven days a week.
“Seeing the excavators break ground on the site this week means that the development is now in full swing,” Mr Lynch said.
“Our vision was to bring an attraction to Hervey Bay that gives families and businesses something different to do in the region, and I believe the mini golf will definitely fill that void.
“It’s not just about tourism. It’s also about giving businesses somewhere different to hold corporate events and functions, and we’ll have an area for children’s parties too.
“There will also be special ‘pro’ days where putt-putt enthusiasts can bring their own putter to play.”
Mini Golf Hervey Bay is expected to open in mid-2023.
Stage two of the development will see 14 townhouses built and Stage three will include a 32-bed motel.
