Confusion reigns at the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder over the multi-million dollar redevelopment of the Kalgoorlie Golf Course.

A report by chief executive Don Burnett listing projects which might be funded by the proposed $150m Goldfields Revitalisation Fund was tabled at last Monday’s City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder council meeting.

The report, prepared in response to a State Government request for further information about the proposal, included $50m for a community facility and clubhouse for the golf course as a potential beneficiary of the fund.

However, speaking to the Kalgoorlie Miner yesterday, Mr Burnett said $30m for the development would be sourced from private enterprise.

He said between $15m and $20m would be sought from the State Government to develop a community hub for the northern part of the city, which would include a creche, day spa, restaurants and a function centre.

The additional $30m would be for a 120-room resort, expected to be constructed by a developer.
