Teeing off is a lot more luxuriant at the Glenelg Golf Course thanks to the creation of a smart water storage system cleverly disguised as a serene wetland in the north east corner of the course.

The stormwater harvesting system built into the wetland naturally filters, processes and stores approx. 1000 megalitres of polluted stormwater a year – future proofing the courses’ water needs and saving our client from excessive water bills.


Working directly with the client’s architect FMG ensured that the wetland is not only practical, but also improved its natural appearance. The seamless transition into the fairway enhanced the courses’ appeal and enriched the members’ game – increasing membership retention and attracting international players.

Our worry-free process meant our client could leave the hard work to us and focus on looking after their members during construction.

  • One single point of management contact, and direct collaboration with the architect created a worry-free low stress process
  • Tailored Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) strengthened the club’s environmental equity by cleaning up stormwater for economic use which otherwise would have polluted our waterways.
  • Seamless integration increases course appeal  increasing membership and visitors.
“FMG’s attention to detail and inclusion of club staff and our course architect was instrumental in the club remaining well informed about every stage of the project.”
