Minnippi Golf Course

Brisbane City Council is working with BMD Properties Pty Ltd (BMD) to deliver a public golf course behind the residential precinct at Minnippi Estate in Cannon Hill.

The new public golf course will be Brisbane's first public golf course in 70 years and the only public golf course south of the Brisbane River. The golf course will be in addition to Council's existing golf course at St Lucia and provide opportunities for players to join with friends and test their skills.

Latest update

BMD commenced construction of the golf course in late 2020 and is due for completion in 2022.

The cost to construct the golf course will be funded entirely from proceeds of the residential development.

As part of the development agreement between Council and BMD, BMD was responsible for remediating the former Cannon Hill tip prior to construction of the Minnippi residential precinct and public golf course. Remediation works were fully funded by Council.

BMD started works to construct the Minnippi residential precinct in late 2016 and several stages are now complete. All residential development is expected to be complete in 2022.

Project timing

Remediation works for the site started in May 2015 and all construction works are anticipated to be completed in 2022. The project includes the following stages:

  1. Remediation works
    Works commenced in May 2015 and were completed in July 2016.
  2. Construction of the residential precinct (stages 2, 3 and 4)
    Construction started in late 2016 and are now complete.
  3. Construction of the golf course
    Construction commenced in late-2020, and is expected to be completed in 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting.
  4. Construction of stage 5 of the residential development
    Construction is expected to start in 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Environmental impacts

Works will be undertaken in accordance with an approved environmental management plan. Council will support BMD in the implementation of the plan to ensure all necessary precautionary measures are undertaken to minimise environmental impacts.

Development approval conditions have also been imposed to ensure appropriate rehabilitation is undertaken and that all habitats are managed, and ecological features are preserved.

The environmental management plan includes provision for the amelioration of impacts to the squirrel glider population within the project site.

The adjacent Minnippi Parklands, Preston Road Park and Meadowlands Picnic Ground will not be impacted by the development.
