At Council, on Friday, the following General Business item was passed unanimously:-
That Jigsaw continues operation of the Helensvale Community Golf Club site until 30th June 2019, as per the current lease agreement.
That the land continues to operate as a golf course facility and there be no further investigations into potential future alternate uses.
In preparation for the conclusion of the current lease arrangement, that planning for a tender process commence to seek an entity for the ongoing management of the golf course and associated facilities.
My thanks to the representatives from the Gold Coast District Golf Association, the PGA and players who met with the Mayor, Cr Vorster and myself yesterday and voiced strongly their position regarding the need to keep the course open.
40,000 rounds of golf, 230+ residential houses adjoining the course*, 2,500+ houses in Helensvale.
Since the initial council decision there has been clear support for golf to continue to be played on this City owned facility.
It’s was indeed very pleasing to see this matter resolved positively
