Broome Golf Club reveals revamp plans

POSTED ON December 22, 2017 @ 4:33 pm

The Broome Golf Club has flagged a $6.5 million development proposal as it pushes for a 21-year lease agreement.

Even though the club has 11 years left to run on its current lease, “milestone” conditions previously imposed by the Shire of Broome require detailed plans for a new clubhouse, along with a business case and funding strategy.

The latest concept involves construction of three “pod-style” buildings.

Two of them would incorporate a clubhouse with bar facilities, a pro shop, an administration area, a boardroom, change rooms and cart storage.

The other would be leased out to an independent business to operate a formal restaurant/function room upstairs and cafe-style dining downstairs.

Senior council managers said up to $5 million of grant funding was needed for the project, plus a $1.5 million self-supporting loan over 21 years, which would need to be taken out by the Shire on behalf of the BGC.

“Albeit the BGC has outlined a strategy to apply for these grants, there are some doubts as to the likelihood of being able to independently achieve the full $5 million required to complete the build,” officers said in last Thursday’s full council agenda report.

The BGC has requested a 21-year lease to achieve its funding outcomes and meet any loan commitments.
