The master planning of a golf course for the southwest Queensland town of Birdsville has been carried out as a community service project working with the Birdsville community under the sponsorship of the Diamantina Shire Council. It has offered some interesting challenges and creative design opportunities in terms of "alternative" site survey techniques and in meeting the severe environmental constraints of playing golf on a very beautiful but fragile site in a remote arid environment. This Master Plan received the 1997 Landscape Excellence Award from the AILA Queensland Group. It is anticipated that construction will commence in 1998.Author's Note: Commencement of construction was delayed until 2002, The Year of The Outback.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
