Construction starts in June on a $12million golf and hospitality venue featuring 40 golf driving ranges, minigolf, plus dining and entertainment in Norwest.
Norwest parent developer Mulpha received DA approval from Hills Shire Council for the $12m “Swing City” development earlier this month. Work on the venue is scheduled for completion in late 2021.
The venue will cater for a broad range of sporting, leisure,entertainment and corporate function demand in the Hills district.
A Mulpha spokesperson said: “Each bay at Swing City ’s golf driving range will feature the latest in golf ball tracking technology allowing players to not only improve their swing, but also to compete in a range of challenges including longest drive, nearest the pins and virtual play on many of the world’s most famous golf courses.”
Swing City is located on Elizabeth Macarthur Drive, near Norwest Private Hospital, opposite Mulpha’s new landmark timber commercial building The Bond currently under construction.
Mulpha CEO, Greg Shaw said: “With families now making up 64 per cent of households in The Hills, Norwest is ideally located for a diversified leisure and entertainment offering.
“There are limited licensed sporting venues currently in the area, so Swing City will tap into a growing demand from people to enjoy the game of golf in a more family-friendly setting.
“Swing City is just one of a number of new initiatives designed to create a vibrant, active and socially-engaged community, connected to nature and neighbours, and ultimately a highly liveable Smart City in Norwest,” he said.
Norwest has been identified by the State Government as a strategic growth centre, where numbers over the next decade are expected to increase to 60,000 workers, 20,000 residents and 10,000 visitors, as well as over 2,000 organisations.
