IT’S the short form of golf that gets everyone excited and it’s coming to Tamworth.
Putt putt golf is the latest development for the Longyard Golf Club, with work on the two beginner and advanced courses to begin in October.
Club function manager Louise Waters has been working on the project for the past six months.
The development application for two courses, a kiosk and a kids party room is with Tamworth Regional Council and is expected to be approved later this month.
The Thorny’s Putt Putt courses will be near the driving range.
“We’ll have two courses, one easy and one more challenging for the advanced players,” Mrs Waters said. “We wanted to offer something more for Tamworth people.”
Mrs Waters said the putt putt golf would result in more functions for the club.
“We hope it’ll increase the number of people who come through the clubhouse,” she said.
“Many people don’t realise that you don’t need to be a member to come out to the clubhouse.”
Course designers Mini Golf Australia will do most of the work, along with the Longyard Golf Club greens keepers.
“We’ll start straight away, as soon as it’s approved by council, and we want to be open by the start of the Christmas school holidays in December,” Mrs Waters said.
