Glorious weather on King Island right through summer and autumn has allowed progress on the exciting new coastal course at Cape Wickham to continue on schedule. Currently there are 14 holes completed and grassed, with the remaining four holes in various stages of development. The spectacular drivable par four 12th has been roughed-in and will be grassed before the end of May, as will the long par five 13th. The final holes, 15 and 16, require some additional earthworks but should be ready for grassing by the end of June. The course remains on track for a 2015 opening.
In order to create great golf an architect needs a number of things. He needs a great site and a great plan as well as a generous and understanding client, a clear vision for the finished product, some daring and a strong dose of artistic flair. Most of all, though, he needs a talented shaper.
