Indooroopilly Golf Club near Brisbane, Australia, has hired golf course architect Ross Perrett and professional golfer Karrie Webb to develop a masterplan.
“The club has an ambitious brief and will provide a great opportunity for us, a totally Australian company to demonstrate our passion and skills,” said Perrett. “We are well advanced due to the work we did last year and are working to a strict timetable with a course masterplan to be completed by the end of March.”
Indooroopilly has 36 holes on undulating parkland that wraps around the Brisbane River.
“To partner with one of our most successful Australian male golfers in Peter Thomson was an absolute delight,” said Perrett. “And now to work with our greatest ever female player is a dream come true. We are thrilled to team up on our first project together and extremely excited to be appointed to redesign Indooroopilly Golf Club.
“Karrie has worked with us before, most notably Thomson Perrett’s Rio 2016 design competition bid back in 2011, where we were a finalist. Peter Thomson and l loved working with Karrie and when he retired, he hoped Perrett Webb would eventuate.”
Webb is currently assisting with the remodelling of Townsville Golf Club on the north east coast of Queensland, Australia, where she regularly played as a junior.
“I am quite familiar with Indooroopilly Golf Club having played there many times as an amateur,” said Webb. “To be selected with Ross Perrett to redesign the course as our first venture together is very humbling and something I will give my full attention to. I sincerely look forward to working with the board to achieve our mutual goals”.
“We are very excited about the new association with Perrett Webb,” said club president Sam Christie. “The enthusiasm and the course design vision that the Perrett Webb team are bringing to the club, gives us enormous confidence and we are very much looking forward to the future development of our golf courses at Indooroopilly.”
