Wangaratta Golf Club approached the Buffalo Built team to help design and build a brand new clubhouse for members. This 18-hole course is much loved by the local golfing community and the Club wanted to ensure its facilities were fresh, modern and fit for purpose. The Club management also needed a simple but practical structure to store their fleet of golf carts.
The clubhouse structure featured an enclosed steel shed building on one side with internal partition walls, creating a flexible and practical space for members to socialise and the Club to conduct business and run the pro shop. Featuring a large veranda that wraps around the front and side of the building, the clubhouse offers plenty of shelter in inclement weather.
At the back of the structure, the long side of the building is open creating the perfect space for members to practise their swing. The shed offers an undercover hub for the driving range, with plenty of space for locals to enjoy.
A stand-out design feature is the horizontal cladding, giving a rural character to the clubhouse and a warm inviting feel.
To complement the new clubhouse, the Wangaratta Golf Club management also needed a dry and secure spot to store golf carts. A smaller cart shed was constructed adjacent to the clubhouse, with a simple design enhanced by skylight panel inserts in the roof.
The Club now has a strong, functional undercover driving range which is allowing them to expand their business – the driving range is open day and night, 7 days a week with floodlights that can be activated by patrons at night. The accompanying golf cart storage shed has secured the Club’s carts neatly and effectively.
Aaron Barker from Buffalo Built adds that the new space is a great asset for the local community.
“We had a blast partnering with our local golf course in bringing their new clubhouse and cart shed to life. What a great space to spend time on the weekend!”
