Moore Park recycles golf balls for wider community

It is out with the old and in with the new at Moore Park Golf Driving Range in Sydney with 45,000 brand new Srixon golf balls replacing the existing balls used at the Range. We receive over 3,000 visitors per week to the Driving Range, with over one million golf balls hit per month from the Range that is over 12 million balls annually. The new Srixon balls will completely transform the user experience at the Range from what is was before said Robin Taylor, Manager of Sport and Recreation at Centennial Parklands. We are also conscious of our responsibilities within the sport and environmentally, and will be working with Golf Australia to ensure the old balls are distributed to junior golf and other community facilities throughout New South Wales. We re literally practising the principles of the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle campaign! Over the last few weeks, we have upgraded and improved the Driving Range s turf, floors, mats, lighting, and now have 45,000 of the best performing range balls on the market available. We are all about the experience, and as Sydney s best public golf course we want to provide the best conditions as we can for customers when they play at Moore Park Golf. With the launch of the Sydney Golf Academy at Moore Park Golf, a number of improvements have also been made, with a dedicated coaching area for the Academy now available on the Range. This will provide a better experience for people learning and improving their skills whether that is men, women, seniors or children. Over the last four years the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust (owner of Moore Park Golf), has invested more than $1.6 million in the course and facilities.
