Portsea Golf Club is located on the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 90 minutes drive from the Melbourne CBD. Set amongst rolling sand dunes and coastal vegetation, with spectacular views across Port Phillip Bay the 18 hole, 5973 metres par 72 layout is consistently ranked in the Top 50 golf courses in Australia. Portsea is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and the clubhouse facilities provide the ideal surroundings for the relaxation and enjoyment of members and guests.
Tract Consultants prepared a Landscape Impact Assessment for the site and two separate planning applications for the Golf Club. The first was to realign an existing residential subdivision along Relph Avenue and the second application sought approval for the construction of a new clubhouse. This required working with specialist consultants, golf course architects, the community and Council.
Tract co-ordinated the planning permit process and also provided evidence at VCAT, achieving success for both applications.
The works were recently completed and Tract attended a very successful opening night function at the end of June 2013.
