The range would include a new concrete slab 30 metres in length and three metres in width, along with driving mats and protective shade sails. The netting is proposed for the Opossum Road boundary to the south-east, with a height of 20 metres and width of 89 metres.
“We hope that the development will improve facilities both for club members and general use,” he said.
Mr Wilks said the proposed upgrade in facilities would increase safety for members of the public who use Opossum Road.
“At the moment the facility is inadequate for full use of golf clubs as some members would hit balls onto Opossum Road,” he said. “The new netting will be 20 metres high and provide much-improved safety for the passing pedestrian and vehicular traffic.”
“Timing of the construction is obviously dependent on council approvals being granted,” he said.
“Assuming that we get all of the approvals that we need though, we are hopeful that we could get started by March or April next year.”
