Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said the council, in consultation with the golf club, has developed a draft design for a new pavilion that will incorporate a new pro shop, change rooms and storage.
“Importantly, the design also includes a new community room on the second storey,” Cr Greene said.
“It has also been been identified that six new greens could be constructed to facilitate the new buildings, as well as new pathways to for safe access for all golf course users.
“The construction of a new pavilion, greens and safe pathways will encourage members of the community to participate in the rewarding pastime of golf, get active and enjoy the wonderful open spaces our area is known for.”
Hurstville Golf Club will contribute $400,000 to the project, with works to start in early 2019.
Oately MP Mark Coure weclomed the funding announcement.
“Our local sporting clubs deserve first-class facilities and this funding boost for Hurstville Golf Club will help the council deliver new and upgraded amenities, new pavilion which includes a new pro shop, change rooms and storage,” Mr Coure said.
“I have worked closely with council and Hurstville Golf Club over the years and seen the urgent need to ensure this funding and upgrade occurred.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Premier Gladys Berejiklian for helping to deliver this funding.”
