Brisbane’s iconic St Lucia Golf Links has unveiled a one million dollar renovation, launching a new Golf Pro Shop, Hundred Acre Bar atrium and the golf links, all managed for the first time by Jens Holland and Hans Pettersson.

Having managed Hillstone and hundred acre bar for over 30 years, Holland and Pettersson have welcomed golf operations into their management portfolio, offering dining, events and golf all at the same location.

Jens Holland, director of St Lucia Golf Links, said securing the management rights had opened new lifestyle and entertainment possibilities for Brisbane residents.

“Our goal has always been to evolve based on the wants and needs of the local community and there was a high demand for an all-encompassing interactive marketplace,” he said.

“St Lucia Golf Links has become a lifestyle experience in the inner Brisbane region, where families and friends can enjoy an array of different outings and events, whether it’s a wedding, a Christmas party or a golf day. Now there is something for everyone.”

Highlights of the renovation are a new and improved Golf Pro Shop with Brisbane’s best golf simulator, and an architecturally designed atrium in the heart of the venue hosting a fireplace bar, market pop-up stall and revamped casual dining and lounge experience.

The expansion has also seen the welcoming of a team of PGA golf professionals who will be on hand seven days a week, including Peter Clark and Grant Williams. In addition, there are 60 new Yamaha golf carts with esky service so players can enjoy food and beverages on the licensed course.

The St Lucia Golf Links has seen nearly a hundred years of history; in 1926 the world’s most renowned golf course  architect, Alister MacKenzie, was commissioned to assist in designing the course. He later went on to design Augusta, in Georgia, USA, the most famous golf course in the world.

There are yet more changes to come at St Lucia Golf Links, with further renovations to hundred acre bar to be announced in early 2018.
