Albert Park Golf Course

Parks Victoria, who manages Albert Park on behalf of the State Government, has released a Masterplan that aims to destroy a golf course where many tens of thousands of local golfers play every year. Very few countries are lucky to offer such an amazing Public Golf Course where one can admire the city skyline.

"It's an escape really, to play here. Once I'm on the first tee, everything else fades into the background. I'm looking at the lake, looking at the sunrise over the city, and I'm just thinking... right... make a good clean contact." http://bit.ly/AlbertParkGC #VisitMelbourne Visit Melbourne Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Improve. Not Destroy

As golfers and park users, we believe in improving the park and the course, but we do not believe in this plan, which destroys golf at Albert Park forever.

Melbourne. Sports Capital

Help us keep Melbourne's sporting reputation right in the heart of the city.

Encourage. Not replace

Let’s ask the Government to invest in social and health initiatives in conjunction with golf course users.

How the Golf Course will be affected?

After Albert Park Master Plan

As you can see from Parks Victoria’s Master Plan map, the golf course will be reduced from almost 6000 metres to less than 2000 metres – not a real golf course but a pitch and putt course, almost the entire golf course will disappear.

Before Master Plan

The 18 hole layout is one of the best golf locations in the world. We are situated next to Albert Park’s beautiful lake, with views of the Melbourne CBD skyline from most holes

Is the Masterplan all Bad?

No. There are some great ideas in the Masterplan, like upgrading the walking tracks, providing safe night lighting, and increasing pedestrian access to the park. There are some ideas worth considering, like the pedestrian footbridge over Queens Rd, and a pedestrian footbridge over the lake. However, there is room for these improvements without destroying the golf course.

Why is this campaign so important?

We want Parks Victoria to be aware of the effect this golf course closure will have on golfers. We want our voices to be heard. Those of us who play golf regularly at Albert Park, as well as the tourists, and the Corporates, and the Charity and Social Groups, need to let them know that this is a reckless plan that does not have community support. We need to save 18 holes for today, and for the future. Please like the Facebook page and sign the online petition, and even send emails and letters if you can.
