Greg Norman Golf Course Design has been selected to develop a new nine-hole golf course in Sydney, Australia.
The new par three course will form part of The Hermitage masterplanned estate in the Gledswood Hills area of the city, which was launched in 2012.
Staff from Norman’s firm will with alongside residential property developer Sekisui House and club operator Wests Campbelltown to create the new facility, which will also include a commercial driving range and practice facilities.
The course will cover 1,365 metres with an average distance of 152 for each hole.
“Together we will be delivering a world-class golf course in this exciting growth corridor of south-west Sydney,” Norman said. “The Hermitage estate is the idyllic location to showcase my unique and wholly sustainable golf course designs while providing award-winning facilities for the residents and the local community. I have a deep-rooted passion for continuing to develop and support the game of golf in Australia. This project will provide a wonderfully unique golfing experience in a growth corridor of New South Wales.”
Construction work is likely to begin next year, with a public opening earmarked for 2018.
