  • Warringah Regional Golf Study

    over 3 years ago

    Warringah Council adopted the Warringah Recreation Strategy in 2009. One of the key recommendations from this document was for a further specific review regarding the current level of golf facility provision and demand in the Warringah and adjacent Local Government Areas. To date this review had not been undertaken. 

    As District Park includes the Warringah Golf Course it is timely that the wider Golf Review recommended in the 2009 Warringah Recreation Strategy now take place.

    Council has commissioned an external consultant to undertake the Study. JBAS is acknowledged as the leading provider of independent golf industry consultancy services in Australia. The general scope of the study is:

    • An assessment of national, state and regional trends in golf
    • An assessment of the current supply of golf facilities in the Warringah region and potential future needs
    • A detailed analysis and specific recommendations relating to the provision of golf opportunities in Warringah and in particular with regard to the Warringah Golf Course.

    The target completion date for the study is 31 March 2014.
