Moore Park Golf is one of the most disability-friendly public golf courses in Australia. Here are four reasons why.
We’ve invested millions of dollars in Moore Park Golf over the last five years – and the benefits for people with disability are a key focus for much of this work.
Reason #1: Australia’s first public paragolfer
Watch this short video (filmed at Moore Park Golf) to understand the power of a paragolfer, and why we are so proud to have made available the first publicly-bookable version in Australia…
Reason #2: Accessible tees on our driving range
The Moore Park Golf driving range is one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and the second busiest on a public golf course in Australia!
One great feature of the driving range is the accessible and automated tee system that dispenses and sets a ball on the tee without requiring the player to bend down.
Reason #3: New accessible change rooms
Set within the historic Moore Park Golf House, a new unisex accessible changerooms (with toilet, shower and facilities) was installed in 2014 to further improve services for players with disability or with additional mobility needs.
Reason #4: New accessible access ramps
The challenge of working within the heritage confines of a golf course facility from 1926 is to retrospectively upgrade accessibility ramps without deteriorating the heritage aesthetics and values of the facility. However, we were determined to, and we did it.
A new accessible ramp now allows access to the patio deck for full access to amenities and refreshments for players.
There are even more reasons why we are a major benefit for those players with disability or additional mobility needs including our partnership with Royal Rehab, and parking on-site on the flat with ample accessible parking spaces to name just a few.
However, we like to think that it’s just our contribution and service at improving this amazing public facility and broadening its availability to as many people as possible.
