Queensland Golf Facilities Plan 2020-2030

Queensland Golf Facilities Plan 2020-2030

Completed: 2020

Client: Golf Australia

The Queensland Golf Facilities Plan was developed by insideEDGE to provide Golf Australia and its stakeholders with a detailed assessment and analysis of the state’s golf facility landscape across metropolitan and country Queensland.

The Plan provides golf clubs and venues with clarity and direction in their facility planning and development initiatives and delivers clear evidence for prioritising golf infrastructure projects.

A detailed audit of 279 golf venues assisted in the development of a strategic development framework to support golf’s vision of delivering well located, welcoming, accessible and sustainable golf facilities.

Facility related infrastructure priorities were developed for each of the 16 golf regions across Queensland following a detailed stakeholder consultation program and needs assessment. Consultation with the golf community, facility providers and local government provided insights into the facility challenges, barriers and development aspirations for golf infrastructure in Queensland.

Short, medium and long term strategic recommendations in each region will be used to guide the future planning and development of golf infrastructure and enable local golf communities and Council partners to confidently invest and collaborate on future golf related projects.


insideEDGE were engaged by Golf Australia to deliver golf’s first ever state-wide facilities plan.

The insideEDGE team’s extensive experience and proven track record of delivering strategic facility plans at a state-wide level, coupled with their willingness to go the extra yard, work and adapt to the needs of the client and consult with the golf community ensured the successful delivery of the project.

The Queensland Golf Facilities Plan provides an aspirational but achievable 10-year roadmap for the future planning, provision and enhancement of golf facilities and infrastructure across Queensland and a template that can be followed by Golf Australia as it develops other state-wide plans.”
