Hurstville Golf Club to receive $2.5 million for new pavilion, greens and safe pathways

20/07/2018

Opportunities for the Georges River community to participate in active recreation are set to receive a boost with a $2.5 million upgrade to Hurstville Golf Course, thanks to NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund and a partnership between Hurstville Golf Club and Georges River Council.

The funding is part of a $9.5 million package awarded to Georges River Council by the NSW Government for major capital works projects throughout the local government area.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said the upgrade will promote relaxation, health and wellbeing for the community through increased opportunities to participate in active recreation.

“In consultation with Hurstville Golf Club, Council 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 fantastic new community room on the second storey,” he added.
“It has also been been identified that six new greens could be constructed to facilitate the new buildings, as well as new pathways to facilitate 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 anticipated to commence in early 2019.
