The Club Projects Page will inform members of current and future projects planned by the Club, and approved by the Management Committee. The Page will describe the Project, will list who is responsible for the Project and a projected timeline. Members are invited to contribute time, materials or any make other contribution which will aid the Project in coming to fruition. Projects will, in the normal course of events, be signalled in the Clubs' Strategic Plan.
Some time ago, the Club was gifted two exterior aluminium doors and these have become the genesis of a proposal to upgrade the west wall of the Clubhouse to enhance the "usability" of the Clubhouse
The existing windows are well past an acceptable condition, the glass being impossible to clean, and very difficult to paint. There is one small double door to the outside, which seems to only be used for funerals!
A small group of very keen and capable builders and designers have come up with an excellent plan to install the aluminium doors in the place of the French windows, and have these open onto a deck running the length of the clubhouse, overlooking the practice green and with panoramic views of the course. It is envisaged the deck will provide an inviting area for socialising and will increase the capacity of the lounge which will be especially useful for big events such as our Open tournament.
The deck will measure approximately 13 m x 4 m, which means it will encroach onto the putting green by 1m.
The plan is to include 20 square metres of overhead shade in the form of controllable louvres to deal with both hot and wet conditions. Outdoor seating will also be provided, in the form of some fixed seats, and tables and chairs.
The overall cost of this project is $19,100.
The proposal has been endorsed by the Management Committee.

Paths are identified in the Strategic Plan as a means of enhancing the appearance of the course, and as a means of reducing damage to the course by carts and trundlers, particularly in wet conditions.
Paths identified for improvement in this year's plan are Number 11 (completed), Number 18, and Number 8.
Work will progress as the grass growth slows and as Greenkeepers time becomes available.
The "Friday Club" has donated the materials for the path on Number 11 hole.
