Council recently renovated the Club rooms at the Dorset Golf Course through combined State and Federal funding.  The Maroondah Leader has reported on the results of the project, which received $295,000 from the Federal Government and $56,000 from Coucil.

Mayor Alex Makin said the revamp was a “marked improvement.”

The project included a redesign of the building’s interior, new kitchen facilities and sustainability improvements through solar panels and water tanks.  The funding also included a renovated driving range.  The Dorset Club is home to a range of community groups, including the Dorset Lady Bird, the Dorset Golf Club and the Dorset Ladies Golf Club.
