Members were updated on the progress being made in positive engagement with key organizations including Scottish Golf, The R&A and sportscotland for this massive project.
The team behind the concept were advised by Perth and Kinross Council’s community development team and liaised with South Perth Community Green Spaces, the Tayside Trail Association and others to obtain comments on how new facilities can benefit everyone.
Craigie Hill Transition Committee spokesman Dave Mitchell said: “Member response to the project has been very encouraging. We are now preparing a public consultation schedule.
“While the main driver has secured the future of a club that has been part of the urban fabric since 1911 for existing golfers and generations to come, by enacting exciting plans for a high quality nine-hole golf course that would be enjoyable and appealing to all ages and abilities, we quickly recognized the opportunity to create a lasting legacy with our land that would benefit the wider community.
The golf club liaised with adjacent landowners, including the local authority and Moncreiffe Estates, to secure access rights to create a refurbished, environmentally friendly community centre.
This would encourage outdoor activities such as orienteering, mountain biking and forest experiences. Proposals to meet demand for nine-hole golf courses first emerged five years ago as Craigie Hill sought ways to meet financial challenges and shrink and age its membership.
