Fremantle Public Golf Course upgrades get underway
As part of the reconfiguration and upgrade of the Fremantle Public Golf Course, the old club house has been demolished and will be replaced with a new club house, café and community facility servicing both the golf course and neighbouring Booyeembara Park.
The revamped course is expected to reopen in May 2021, however the City is hopeful there may be an opportunity to reopen the driving range earlier. The new club house is due for completion in January 2022.
The new course design maintains a nine-hole, par 34 layout and includes three completely new holes, the introduction of a par 5 hole, the replacement of all tees and greens and new bunkering scenarios. The works will also include a renewed irrigation system, new cart paths and renewed course furniture.
More than 95% of the materials from the old club house will be recycled, with bricks and concrete crushed and recycled as road base or drainage materials, timber separated out for re-use and steel recycled and used in the manufacture of new steel products.
The old building, which was built in the mid-70s, was demolished to make way for a new opening hole on the redesigned course and with the redesign required to make room for the upgrade of High Street by Main Roads WA.
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.
Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said the replacement facility would be a vast improvement and notes “no doubt there are a lot of people who have happy memories of the time they’ve spent at the old club house, but it was looking a bit tired and dated.
“The High Street upgrade has given us the opportunity to reimagine and refresh the golf course and provide a fantastic new facility that will offer a much better experience for golfers and visitors to Booyeembara Park.”
The Fremantle Public Golf Course is currently closed while the reconfiguration works are carried out.
Fremantle Council’s Finance, Policy, Operations and Legislation committee received the findings from the latest round of community engagement on the new club house and community facility, endorsed the location for the new building and approved progressing to the next stage in the design process.
