They also built Capital, Spring Valley, Thirteenth Beach, Sandhurst and The Sands. The one at the National has been built as a show of opulence in my opinion, but it does need to cater for some 2,500 members using 3 courses. I'm tipping the board would have inspected all these clubhouses before making their selection. Perrott Lyon Mathieson is the firm that have been awarded the contract to build it. They were also involved in other projects such as the Rialto Towers and the Crown Casino complex.
If i were the board of Eastern i would visit the clubhouse at the National and talk to the members.
It is amazingly beautiful with stunning views but terribley impracticle. The locker rooms are below, members can come into the building and leave without the proshop ever knowing, the bag drop is not visable from the pro shop, the formal and informal dining isn’t segrogated, ie for weddings or presentations.
As i said looks good but looks can be decieving

Let's just say Croydon will be quite annoyed when it all comes to light...
Does anyone know the address of the land Eastern is about to sign off on? There are whispers of 215 Victoria Road, Yering which is a stones throw from Croydon (Yering Meadows). Can anyone confirm this address….or otherwise?

The word is that once they sign off the option on the land, the application process will take approx 18 months - 2 years to have the planning application passed. My contact believes the club is very close to signing off on the property so there should be something announced within the next few weeks. It takes approx. 2- 2 1/2 years (on average) from turning the first sod to having a course playable, so based on this and assuming all goes smoothly, the course should open sometime in 2013-14. My contact has advised me that the club has requested members not to divulge the location of the land to the general public so I'm respecting that request. Sorry, but I'm sure it will be public knowledge soon!
Hi again Pherst,
Interesting. Clever of Eastern to employ the same people involved with the development of Croydon – that should speed up the process that Croydon went through no end.
Not sure what exactly is happening with Chirnside, I’ve just heard that they are close to getting to a stage where things are nearly tied up for their relocation.
Although you cannot divulge the exact location of where Eastern is currently negotiating the purchase of land for their relocation (I’ll still bet my bottom dollar that it is 215 Victoria Road!) do you have any idea as to when Eastern expects to commence development of their new course?

I would expect the main concern for VCAT would be the survival of another club in that location. The difference between Eastern and the other clubs out there is that Eastern will be completely self sufficient when they open the doors. They will not need to canvas for members at any stage (Croydon is currently advertising on the radio) due to the large cash surplus they will have left over from the sale of the Doncaster property and development of the new site.The main concern for VCAT in the event someone objected and took it there would be whether or not it meets the relevant provisions of the applicable planning scheme. The impact on surrounding clubs is not relevant. I would be betting they would be canvassing for members pretty quickly after settling at the new course. Those cash piles have a habit of disappearing very quickly. I'd bet a pile of existing members will not like the new course/be prepared to travel/etc and resign in short order.
