Construction on Seacliff Golf Course clubhouse has begun

A brand new clubhouse is set to breathe new life into a City of Marion golf course with construction commencing on a multi-million dollar project this week.

The Seacliff Golf Course, formerly known as the Marion Golf Park, is famous for its breathtaking views of Adelaide’s coastline across 9 holes.

However, the club has had its limitations attracting membership after the clubrooms were knocked down around 20 years ago for safety reasons.

The club’s members have lobbied hard for a new space for its golfers and now that is finally being delivered with Marion Mayor Kris Hanna turning the sod on the project on Saturday.

“For nearly 20 years our local golfers have had to make do with a one-room “temporary” clubhouse,” Mayor Hanna said.

“It’s time we gave them a brand new clubhouse for both members and visitors to enjoy.

“Importantly, it’s not an elitist club – it’s a true community club, allowing people from all walks of life and varying degrees of golfing ability to enjoy the game.”

The key features of the Seacliff Golf Course redevelopment will include a new clubroom and Pro-shop Building, landscaping improvements as well as a new car park. 

This clubroom will be built in the same spot as the previous demolished facility connecting the 1st tee, 9th green, the practice green, driving range, and car park. 

Council will also be improving water supply to the course to ensure it remains a sustainable public golf course for years to come.

The redevelopment works are expected to take approximately 12 months to complete.

Council is aiming to increase participation and activity at the site through the delivery of a quality 9-hole public golf course.

Approximately 15,000 rounds of golf are played on the course every year. The Council anticipates that number could increase up to 25,000 rounds with upgraded facilities.

“The club is really excited about this project kicking off and what it will do for our members, but more importantly the wider community,” Marion Park Golf Club president Simon Young said.

“It will really put us on the map.”
