Up­grade to bring fa­cil­i­ties above par

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

RATEPAY­ERS will pay half of a $96,000 ren­o­va­tion of Seav­iew Golf Club in Cottes­loe.

“The re­quest for funds will ben­e­fit the club and at­tract func­tions and new mem­bers, so I have no prob­lem at spend­ing on an as­set which may even­tu­ally come back the coun­cil,” Cottes­loe Mayor Jo Dawkins said at last month’s meeting.

The club’s lease with the coun­cil ex­pires in 2026, when $270,314 in a self-sup­port­ing loan it has from the Town will also be due for re­pay­ment. The re­quest for $48,000 would help pay for up­grad­ing all chang­ing rooms, pro­vide ac­cess for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and im­prove the kitchen.

Heat­ing would also be in­stalled in the clu­b­room over­look­ing the fair­ways and there would be bar­be­cue and chil­dren’s play­ground ar­eas.

Coun­cil­lor San­dra Boul­ter failed in her bid to have staff re­port on 1800sq m of the course used for a re­place­ment ve­hi­cle and works de­pot.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Matt Hum­frey said a de­pot of that size would cover the club’s cur­rent carpark and shed area and much of the equip­ment was likely to be moved to the Mos­man Park Coun­cil’s de­pot.
