Redeveloped golf centre tees off in Vermont South

Whitehorse City Council has announced the completion of the redeveloped Morack Public Golf in Vermont South.

Mayor, Denise Massoud officially opened the new facility at an event attended by councillors, staff and stakeholders last Thursday.

“These upgrades and new additions will reaffirm Morack Public Golf as one of the best and most loved courses in Melbourne’s east and allow it to be enjoyed by generations of families to come,” she said.

“An exciting new chapter in the long history of Morack Public Golf has begun, and we look forward to welcoming golf lovers, the local community and people from all over Melbourne to experience this redeveloped facility.”

The opportunity to redevelop the popular golf course was first identified by Council in 2016, to ensure Council continued to provide a contemporary golf offering in Melbourne’s east. Construction began in June 2022 and finished in October 2023, with soft launches of new attractions earlier this year.

Three key attractions have been added to Morack Public Golf alongside the existing 18-hole golf course, including:

  • A rebuilt multipurpose pavilion with function spaces, a golf shop and new ‘Club House’ food and drink offerings, including ‘Café M’;
  • A redeveloped 28-bay driving range equipped with TopTracer Range technology, including premium bays for group play and food and drink delivery;
  • A new architecturally-designed 18-hole mini-golf course.

Council invested $12.1 million in the redevelopment and Swing Factory, the course’s new operator, contributed funding for the fit-out and mini golf.

Mayor Massoud said the project was “a pivotal and strategic investment in the health and wellbeing of the Whitehorse community.”
