Kalgoorlie city and golf club closer on deal to end fees impasse

POSTED ON April 11, 2018 @ 8:04 pm

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is close to ending an impasse with the Goldfields Golf Club over licence fees the club has withheld from the council for the past three years, according to City chief executive John Walker.

The fees have been kept in trust by the club since the council failed to build a permanent clubhouse at the $18.5 million Kalgoorlie Golf Course by January 1, 2015, the deadline outlined in contracts originally signed as part of the New Golf Club Agreement in 2004.

According to council documents, the figure totalled $316,000 at the end of 2015, and it is understood to have risen since.

The club’s 430-odd members have been based in a modular building since the course opened in 2010.

Mr Walker said a deal has now been struck to release some of the funds, two years after the council threatened legal action to recover the fees.

Once the agreement is finalised, a first-up payment of $350,000 from the trust will be made to the council, Mr Walker said.
