Lands Minister Doug Shave will today attend the inaugural meeting of the steering committee that will guide development of Kalgoorlie Boulder’s new grassed golf course.
“I’m delighted to attend the inaugural meeting and will be taking a keen interest in the development of the course,” Mr Shave said.
“Initial planning has progressed well and the establishment of the committee will increase the tempo of development.
“Steering committee members provide a good cross section of interested parties and I am confident they will bring this project to a successful outcome.”
The Minister’s nominee, local Mining and Pastoral MLC, Greg Smith, is committee chairman.
City council representatives are Mayor Paul Robson and Councillor Doug Krepp and the Boulder, Hannans and Kalgoorlie golf clubs are represented by Mr Allan Howe, Mr John Law and Mr Graham McGarry.
Department of Land Administration (DOLA) officers Mr Peter McNally and Mr John Silla are also on the committee.
Other members will be co-opted as required.
“Provision of high standard golf facilities in the city is a key issue,” Mr Shave said.
“The steering committee gives us a mechanism to resolve issues and to give me advice and recommendations on the new course.”
Mr Shave said it was important that the general community was happy with the final outcome as well as the new course meeting the expectations of the city’s golfers.
“More than $3 million has been allocated by the State Government in this year and next year’s budget for the course,” Mr Shave said.
“I know the steering committee wants the best outcome for the city.
“It’s an exciting project and I am sure the result will be something that will be a big boost for Kalgoorlie Boulder and the region.”
