New look Fremantle Public Golf Course taking shape

The new look Fremantle Public Golf Course is taking shape, with fresh turf being laid on the newly contoured greens.

Fun & interesting challenges

The makeover of the course, which has been developed as a result of the Main Roads WA High Street upgrade, includes the construction of three completely new holes, the replacement of all tees and greens and new course furniture.

City of Fremantle Director of Infrastructure Graham Tattersall said the new layout would offer a fun and interesting challenge for golfers, despite it being slightly shorter than the old course.

“The new design will provide far greater variety for golfers with more holes of varying lengths, including a par 5 hole for the first time,” Mr Tattersall said.

“There will also be more bunkers and the small, flat greens on the old course are being replaced with larger, undulating ones.

“The new course will also have an upgraded irrigation system which will help to keep the fairways and greens in top condition.”

Accommodation

As part of the High Street project Main Roads is funding a program of accommodation works including the reconfiguration of the golf course and the construction of a replacement club house.

In December 2020 Fremantle Council approved a schematic design report for the new club house and authorised City officers to progress with detailed design.

The project takes the form of two separate buildings – the golf club house to the north and a community centre to the south – linked by a common roof. A café in the middle will serve golfers, community centre users and visitors to Boo Park.

The design employs radial curves to maximise access and views to the golf course and Boo Park, with entry into the buildings through series of curved pathways.

Upgraded parking has been included along Montreal Street, and an increased number of disabled bays and a drop off point have been included in the off-street parking close to the building.

The revamped golf course is expected to reopen in June 2021 with temporary club house facilities.

The new club house and community centre is due for completion in early 2022.
