About the project
The Clubhouse was built in 2005 at a cost of $10M and is a major asset that is required for the Club to achieve its vision of providing a world class golfing experience in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Role of the building
The primary purpose of the Clubhouse is to provide Members and guests with a first class facility to enjoy food and beverage in a relaxed and social environment before and after golf. From time to time the Clubhouse plays a core role in the hosting of major tournaments including the Australian Open.
Scope of the Masterplan
- The Club has completed about 18 months of work to finalise a Clubhouse Masterplan. The aim is to further enhance the Club’s reputation as one of Australia’s leading private golf clubs providing a world class golfing experience in a relaxed and friendly environment. The scope of work undertaken was:Review and analyse the Clubhouse structure and services;
- Internal and external consultation with key stakeholders;
- Consider relevant feedback from 2014 and 2016 comprehensive Member Surveys;
- Identify list of key issues requiring attention or development;
- Compile a detailed plan that outlines developments that can be made that enhance utilisation of the Clubhouse by Members and guests.
- Create more of a special or warmer feeling/experience for any person using the Clubhouse.
- Provide Members with increased functionality/usability of the upstairs level of the Clubhouse food and beverage areas.
- Maintain consistency with the high quality of fixtures, fittings and overall appearance.
- Consider the health and safety of Members, guests and employees.
The completion of the approximate $1,300,000 in works to the Members' Lounge and Balcony will provide Members and guests with a first class facility to enjoy food and beverage in a relaxed and social environment before and after golf. This will enhance the Club and in doing so, enhance the game of golf. We look forward to continuing to work with the architectural and design team from Inarc.
