Birdie cages


The innovative design of our birdie cage golf practice facilities is similar to that of a cricket practice net — allowing golfers of all ages and levels to safely practice their swing without endangering others.

The practice facilities are designed to address the issue of people practicing golf illegally and dangerously in parks, and the need for diverse recreational opportunities in Glen Eira.
