NEW FACILITES

Exciting changes are on the way!

Over the coming months, we will be investing in upgrading the site of the existing Driving Range to become the premier practice, entertainment, and golf learning centre in Melbourne, ensuring its future for the residents of Albert Park and the greater community for years to come.


The new facility will have everything for the serious golfer to hone their skills, greater accessibility for all ability golfers, including the upper level of the Range while also increasing its appeal to a greater section of the community through new offerings.


New facility

The works to be completed are extensive. The current reception/shop will be demolished to make way for a modern building with a café, function facilities and rooftop bar that opens onto the upper level of the Driving Range and overlooks the Albert Park Lake.


More range bays

The Driving Range bays will be available throughout this process but will undergo a considerable makeover. The changes will allow space for an additional 9 Driving Range bays, 5 outside bays at the eastern end of the Range and 2 undercover upstairs and 2 downstairs.


New technology

We will see the addition of Trackman Range Technology included in each bay; the first in Australia. Where you will be able to track ball flight, distance, hit targets and play games.


Mini golf

We will also see the addition of two professionally designed 18-hole mini golf courses.


We will remain open

We understand that at times there will be challenges with access, disruption and noise therefore the renovations have been planned in a way with changes to access and relocation of key amenities, the Driving Range will be able to remain OPEN whilst the works are undertaken.

We look forward to taking you on this journey with us and presenting you with new and exciting facilities in 2023.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Driving Range be closing?

The Driving Range will remain OPEN during the building works. There may be times that we need to close small sections of the Range to allow for works to be completed, but the remainder of the Range will remain open. If at any time full day closures are required, we will communicate this with as much notice as possible via our website, onsite and through our google hours.

How long will the building process take?

We are expecting construction to take 6-8 months and will be completed in stages.

Will golf lessons and custom fitting still be available during this time?

The Golf Learning Centre will remain open with Golf Lessons and Custom Fitting unaffected by these works. Bookings can continue to be made with our staff onsite, by calling the Driving Range on 9696 4653 or via our online booking platform.

Will car parking still be available?

The Driving Range carpark will remain accessible. You will still need to make your way into the temporary shop to purchase a parking permit and place it in your vehicle. Other parking options remain accessible either within the MSAC carpark, metered parking on Aughtie Drive or the on-street parking on Canterbury Road

Will I still be able to purchase golf equipment?

Gloves, golf balls and merchandise will be available in the temporary reception, but a reduced footprint will mean that we are no longer able to stock some larger items. If you require a specific item, please see our staff as we can always order it for you.

What short game facilities will remain open?

A reduced putting green as well as our bunker will remain open during these works.  Our chipping green has been removed to make way for mini golf.  In the interim chipping is available from the bays. Once the building works are complete a new chipping green will be created in the site of our temporary offices.
