Fresh on the Scene

Experience the perfect blend of artistry, refreshment and leisure with our trio of exciting new on the scene Moe businesses – photography, bubble tea and sim golf!

SIM CITY GOLF

Sim City Golf offers a premium indoor golf experience in a boutique setting!

Two private bays are fitted with the latest technology, offering beginners to pros an accurate and realistic experience.

Sim City Golf opened up as part of Stadium 34 in the town of Moe in June 2022. The space is available for work functions, parties and anyone who wants to try their hand at golf.

Matt, the Managing Director of Stadium 34, said the idea of an indoor golf stadium came to him during the pandemic.

“During that time, there was very minimal things we could do and golf was one of the only sports to play outside and in the open,” Matt said. ” I bought a set of golf clubs because I wanted to do something.”

“What the pandemic did do for us as a business is give us time to consider where we are going to go coming out and helped us restructure our plans.”

“I looked at some space we had in the facility and thought this space could work well for indoor golf,” Matt said.

Matt also said golf is attracting a younger demographic of people across Latrobe City as a means of entertaining and socialising.

“What’s great about the facilities on offer at Sim City Golf is that anyone can have a go! There’s a bar to relax with friends afterwards and there’s no pressure to be the best.”

Matt hopes the new skating facility and youth precinct will also help Moe thrive.

“It’s good to see Moe thriving a bit more and there’s certainly a lot on offer here,” Matt said. “There’s more businesses and facilities opening up and it’s great to see people getting more involved in sports such as golf.”

Photography has been Naomi’s passion since high school. “My husband’s a jockey and I started photographing his horse racing as a bit of fun!”

Now with a successful portrait studio, Naomi has a busy December with interactive studio Santa and Christmas mini sessions for families and kids alike.

Naomi is excited about the new Moe precinct opening and said it’s fantastic for the community.

“I’ve taken my family there and our six and nine year old’s had an absolute ball,” she said. “The bigger kids and adults are so accomodating in helping everyone, it’s a nice inclusive community vibe.”

Naomi hopes smaller businesses can thrive in Moe for the future.

“There’s lots of opportunity for smaller businesses in the shops now,” Naomi said. “It would be great to see them filled and supported in a way they can thrive.
