Building Greener with Nudgee Golf Club

Nudgee Golf Club

Nudgee Golf Club has a new lease on life following a stunning redevelopment to return the 91 year old golf club to its former glory, now boasting two, new 18-hole golf courses.  

Thousands of tonnes of Alex Fraser’s sustainable roadbase and aggregates have been used at the Nudgee Golf Club redevelopment.

Established in 1930, Nudgee Golf Club is conveniently located in Nudgee Beach within the municipality of Brisbane City Council. The redevelopment project was led by industry acclaimed course architect James Wilcher of Golf by Design, supplied with sustainable civil construction materials by Alex Fraser’s neighbouring Nudgee Recycling Facility.  

Nudgee Golf Club Superintendent Peter Culross said Alex Fraser’s reliability played a key part in keeping the project on schedule. 

“The service we received from Alex Fraser was exceptional. The entire process, from ordering with Tabatha and the dispatchers to the drivers’ on-time delivery – including their flexibility to adapt quickly and deliver in challenging weather conditions – helped the whole project run smoothly.” 

Mr. Culross also said that he was impressed by the quality of Alex Fraser’s sustainable products. 

“Alex Fraser’s materials are excellent in quality. Every product delivered has met our expectations and our specifications.”  

By choosing green roads materials, Nudgee Golf Club has reduced their environmental impact.

“The club chose green roads materials for the redevelopment because we want to reduce our environmental impact and be able to reuse natural resources where possible. The competitive pricing of Alex Fraser’s products made the decision easy,” he said. 

Queensland Recycling Key Account Manager Tabatha Duke said working with our neighbours at Nudgee Golf Club has provided her with a sense of satisfaction and pride. 

“Nudgee Golf Club is a long-standing, local institution, being part of their major upgrade was extremely rewarding for me and the entire Alex Fraser team.”

“The club and its contractors were a delight to work with – they always provided accurate estimates for upcoming deliveries and they shared our commitment to safety and sustainability too. It was a delight to help them maximise sustainable outcomes on this special project.” 

Nudgee Recycling Facility supplied 6,000 tonnes of sustainable roadbase and 1,000 tonnes of drainage aggregates to the redevelopment. 

To date, the use of Alex Fraser’s green roads materials in this project has: 

  • Reduced landfill by 7,000 tonnes  
  • Reduced traffic by 21 trucks
  • Reduced carbon emissions by 46,000kg

The course upgrade is due for completion by February 2022.
