Ku-ring-gai Council resolved on 10 June 2014 to re-commence the master planning process for Gordon Golf Course with a view to making it a Regional Park.
Council envisages “…this area should be multi use, and could incorporate multi age playgrounds, picnic areas, an off leash area, onsite parking and walking and cycling trails linking to Lady Game Drive through the bushland area. A precinct could be set aside for concerts and another for events such as markets and cultural activities. There is also the opportunity to provide playing fields or courts for active recreation, and an indoor leisure centre.”

Additionally, council are hosting community workshops in October and November to help shape the vision for the masterplan. More details on these workshops and how to RSVP will be communicated by them in the coming weeks.
The masterplan process
Investigating alternative uses for Gordon Golf Course and preparing a masterplan is the beginning of a long process. Council will be consulting residents and the golfing community extensively during this time.
The master planning process will involve:
- Establishing a goal and a vision
- Identifying issues, constraints and limitations
- Collecting and analysing information
- Preparing options for various precincts
- Evaluating options
- Selecting a preferred option
- Adopting a final master plan
If not a golf course, what?
The Council is beginning a master planning process for the golf course. This process will investigate options for the site and involve the community in determining what those options are.
Options could include:
- New regional park, including walking trails, bike tracks, BBQ facilities, shelter areas, play areas and more
- The possibility of new sporting facilities, including an indoor multi-purpose sports centre
- Other community facilities
The other option is for the golf course to remain as is.
