City of Karratha

Karratha Golf Course Redevelopment

The Council currently provides the maintenance of the Karratha Golf Course (fairway mowing, fertilising and watering) in conjunction with volunteer assistance from the members of the Karratha Golf Club (KGC) and Karratha Country Club (KCC). The course is a public course with casual use available.

The Karratha Golf Course redevelopment has been initiated by the City of Karratha and supported by the Karratha County Club (KCC), on behalf of the Karratha Golf Club (KGC). This is on the back on the Pilbara Cities and Karratha City of the North documentation that highlights the current golf course as a potential resort-style golf course. The project sees the City working with the KCC through the redevelopment as the KCC continue to manage the club facilities, the City manages the maintenance of the Golf Course alongside the redevelopment implementation.

We have been progressively implementing the masterplan with works to tee boxes and green surrounds in preparation for grass greening.

The project includes the following elements;

Greening of greens establishment:

  • Designing of the new greens in consultation with KCC is nearly finished.

  • Currently the planning and preparation of construction documentation (reticulation, drainage, design of greens, surrounds and the consideration of the installation of a wetter soil injection system) are being progressed;

  • Earthworks to form the remaining 17 green areas;

  • Turfing of all 17 greens;

  • Upgrade of the reticulation and water systems to support the new greens has been completed, however some additional modifications to meet the design will be implemented.

  • Fencing of the perimeter to prevent vandalism; some partial fencing has been completed on the eastern and southern boundaries and

  • Project management of the green development project including grant funding.
