Kane Constructions has commenced on-site works as part of building a new golf clubhouse as part of a resort-style hotel, 170-seat restaurant, function room and conference centre.
The new resort building will provide extensive leisure facilities such as a day spa, gymnasium, tennis courts and childrens’ playground, along with a sports bar, pro shop and change rooms for golfers.
The redevelopment also includes an upgrade of the golf course, new dams and irrigation systems and the planting of 130,000 indigenous trees, shrubs and ground covers.
RACV Executive General Manager Member Interests, Sue Blake said the 1200 Torquay Golf Club members, RACV’s two million members and their guests will be able to enjoy a wonderful facility. “We expect the RACV Torquay Resort will become an iconic development for the region and significantly increase tourism on the Surf Coast.”
Preliminary works are now well underway on the course itself, following the Surf Coast Shire’s approval of RACV’s water harvesting proposal last month.
“Although we were able to proceed with the building, we couldn't progress our actual course works until we had a reliable source of water”, said Ms Blake. “RACV is pleased that the Shire has recognised the resort for Members, joining those at Cape Schanck, Cobram and Inverloch in Victoria, and the Gold Coast and Noosa in Queensland.
