Sunshine Golf Club was where I started to play golf. I joined the club when I was 10 years of age. I was hooked immediately. We had a
junior competition every Saturday morning. It was keenly contested by about 12 juniors ranging in ages from 10yrs-18yrs.
I have my name on the wall as a past champion at age 14.
The new Sunshine Golf Club will be moving from its present location, to the west side of the freeway that Australand owns. Australand
will then build the new course for the members. When the 18 holes have been completed, Australind will then develop the old Sunshine
Golf Club into housing estate. It is definitely the best move for the club.
The view from the clubhouse in the evening is one of the most impressive vistas of the city of Melbourne.
As for the golf course, it has a ridge running through the property. 6 holes will be on the west side of the hill and 12 holes on the
eastern side. One of the features of this site is the stone fences that surround the property. We will be making a stone wall that will
come into play on the running parallel along the left side of the fairway and ending at the green. It was a similar hole that I played at
