As was announced back in July last year, a new golf development at Cape Wickham on King Island is underway and due for completion sometime in mid-2014. The golf course currently has 10 holes grassed, with another 4 rough shaped and ready for grassing in the next few weeks. The outstanding holes will be completed in May and June, once the nesting shearwater birds have left the site and migrated to the northern hemisphere. The course will be ready for play in 2015.
I am already on the record as saying this is the most spectacular site I have ever seen for golf, and that view is reinforced with each trip down and as each hole matures. It gives me great pleasure, therefore, to announce the launch of the Cape Wickham web site, which allows interested golfers to follow progress as we finish construction and complete the golf course.
The web site address is www.capewickham.com.au
Below are a selection of recent post-construction pictures taken of the first few and final few holes. The Cape Wickham web site contains more information, as well as excellent before and after photographs of selected holes. Content will be updated as holes are grassed.
