- Development will include driving ranges, restaurant along with other function and entertainment facilities
- Golf driving range will feature unqiue technology
- Norwest's population is expected to grow to 20,000 residents
Mulpha, a parent developer of Norwest, has successfully received development application approval from The Hills Shire Council for a new hospitality venue featuring golf, food and beverage and corporate entertainment facilities in Norwest, 35 kilometres north-west of Sydney CBD.
The $12 million development is set to include 40 golf driving range bays along with a licenced restaurant with both undercover and outdoor alfresco dining. Also, included are corporate function and entertainment facilities, mini-golf and other amusements. The venue hopes to cater for a range of sporting, leisure, entertainment and corporate patrons.
Golf fans should find the driving range ‘tee-refic’ as it will feature unique golf ball-tracking technology that facilitates players in improving their swing and compete in challenges such as the longest drive, nearest the pins and even virtually play on famous golf courses from around the world.
Swing City is located on Elizabeth Macarthur Drive which is situated between Norwest Private Hospital and Bella Vista, along with being located opposite Mulpha’s new timber commercial building ‘The Bond’.
“With families now making up 64% of households in The Hills, Norwest is ideally located for a diversified leisure and entertainment offering,” said Mulpha CEO Greg Shaw.
“There are limited licensed sporting venues currently in the area, so Swing City will tap into a growing demand from people to enjoy the game of golf in a more family-friendly setting.”
“Swing City is just one of a number of new initiatives designed to create a vibrant, active and socially-engaged community, connected to nature and neighbours, and ultimately a highly liveable Smart City in Norwest.”

Norwest itself has been labelled by the New South Wales Government as a ‘strategic growth centre’ where over the next decade there is expected to be 60,000 workers, 20,000 residents, 10,000 visitors as well as more than 2,000 organisations.
Mulpha has a varied portfolio across residential, commercial, retirement and hospitality sectors. Flagship investments include Norwest Business Park, InterContinental Sydney, Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast and InterContinental Hayman Island in the Whitsundays.
