Upgrade to bring facilities above par
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.
