Thanks to some creative thinking, Eastwood Golf Club now boasts one of the most distinctive natural landmarks of any course in Australia.
Adjacent to the 1st tee stood a large Cypress tree that posed a safety risk due to its condition and was earmarked to be removed. However, rather than electing for full removal, the Club recognised an opportunity and instead opted to turn the surviving trunk into a unique work of art.
With the assistance of sponsorship from two members, Mike Rawlinson and Roger Earle, the Club commissioned renowned chainsaw sculptor Rob Bast to create a wood carving with the intention of becoming a feature landmark at the course. The design features a golfer with golf bag and clubs, accompanied by birdlife.
The project commenced in March 2015 and took two weeks to complete.
“The sculpture is simply stunning. Rob did an amazing job and exceeded all our expectations. The skill and level of detail that has gone into the work and what he was able to achieve using chainsaws as his tools is quite incredible,” he comments.
“We always thought our course here at Eastwood was special, but we now have a landmark that is truly unique. It has become a major talking point amongst members and guests. Everyone who comes here makes comment on it and usually stop to take photos at the first tee.”
