JURIEN BAY COUNTRY GOLF CLUB PROPOSED WATER EASEMENT ENDORSED BY COUNCIL

Published: Friday, 31 August 2018 at 3:48:10 PM


In 2016, the Jurien Bay Country Golf Club (JBCGC) formally adopted a policy to pursue irrigated fairways as part of its strategic plan. It is proposed that irrigated fairways will increase participation rates in golf year round. Currently an estimated 4ha of the course is irrigated year round. To cover the entire playing surface a watered area of 25ha is required. 

A prerequisite for an increase in irrigation is a suitable supply of additional water, which is not available from within the golf course area.

At the 23 August 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council: endorsed a proposal to create an easement over the proposed pipeline route to facilitate the upgrading of irrigation infrastructure to the Jurien Bay Country Golf Course; will seek comment on the easement proposal from Main Roads and the Water Corporation; and, on receipt of the above, request formal approval of the easement from the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage on behalf of the Jurien Bay Country Golf Club.
