Minnippi Golf Course development project

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.

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

Latest update

Construction of the golf course was completed in July 2023. The operator is now preparing the clubhouse fitout and other works in readiness for play. Opening the weekend of 2-3 September 2023. Find out more.

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.

Project timing

Remediation works for the site started in May 2015 and all construction works were completed in July 2023. 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 following weather-related setbacks, was finished in July 2023. The operator, Clublinks, will confirm an opening date, once fitout works are complete.
  4. Construction of stage 5 of the residential development
    Construction commenced in 2021 and is now complete.

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.
