THE secret is out, the Fraser Coast is getting a new mini golf course.
The 2,500sqm course is being built by the Hervey Bay RSL on the corner of Bideford and Truro streets in Torquay.
Mini Golf Hervey Bay on Facebook announced the new project on Tuesday, with the page attracting more than 1,200 likes in one day.
Stage 1 includes the construction of a shaded 18-hole mini golf course as well as an 800sqm reception area and licenced café.
Hundreds of social media posts and shares this week have highlighted a positive response to the development, which the RSL said will provide family entertainment for locals and visitors to the region.

Hervey Bay RSL CEO Jason Lynch said this was always the intention behind the long-awaited project.
Mr Lynch said the course would be modelled on the popular Maroochy River Mini Golf Course at Bli Bli.
A creek running through the course as well as landscaped humps and hollows, water features, sand traps and lights for night games have been included in the design.

The course will be open seven days a week.
“Seeing the excavators break ground on the site this week means that the development is now in full swing,” Mr Lynch said.
“Our vision was to bring an attraction to Hervey Bay that gives families and businesses something different to do in the region, and I believe the mini golf will definitely fill that void.
“It’s not just about tourism. It’s also about giving businesses somewhere different to hold corporate events and functions, and we’ll have an area for children’s parties too.
“There will also be special ‘pro’ days where putt-putt enthusiasts can bring their own putter to play.”
Mini Golf Hervey Bay is expected to open in mid-2023.
