The Old Mullewa Golf Course is no longer used for recreational purposes and it makes great sense to change the use to astronomical activities! The golf course is only 8kms south of the town of Mullewa. It’s a very dark location.

The old club house building is closed and it is planned to be removed in the near future. We hope to retain the concrete floors of the building as these will make perfect observing platforms for telescopes.
