Delay in Phase 2 of Club's Redevelopment Works

 

7 April 2020

 

At the EGM of 15 February 2017, members had approved a resolution that included that:

(B) the Committee be empowered to:

(i) utilise part of the operating cash flows, up to a total of S$3.4 million over a term of four (4) years, for a coordinated replacement and upgrading program for the clubhouse including the sports block and stable block in compliance with relevant health, sanitation and building regulations;

ii) utilise an amount not exceeding S$2.8 million from the Club’s Facilities improvement fund for addition of new facilities, as follows:

(a) a new lift at the stable block;
(b) a new café / function room and kitchen near the swimming pool; and
(c) sixteen (16) new club rooms at the sports block.

The Phase 1 renovations at our Clubhouse was targeted to be completed sometime in June 2020 but with the latest directive from the Government to close the Club effective 7 April 2020 to 4 May 2020, all redevelopment works have been ordered to stop as well. For your information, Phase 1 includes the following:

• conversion of the Squash Court to a Poolside Kitchen
• construction of a Bistro Bar and a Private Dining Room
• new restrooms
• retiling of the pool and pebble wash flooring at the deck areas & parts of the veranda
• an air-con Reception
• an open kitchen concept at the Main Kitchen,
• renovation of the Main Bar and banquette seating at the veranda, and
• new furniture such as tables and chairs at pool deck and restaurant areas

Phase 2 (Sports Block) works will involve the building of 16 Club rooms and these were expected to be completed sometime in January or February 2021 but will also be delayed due to the said closure.

The Committee, having considered all factors based on the impact of Covid-19, the closure of the Club, the general decline in hotel room occupancy and financial prudence, has decided in the best interest of our Club and members, to delay the Phase 2 redevelopment works. While we cannot predict how long the Covid-19 pandemic can last, we believe that the said works will be delayed at least six months or even up to a year.

We thank you for your understanding on the above as we unite together as one during this challenging period.

Keep well and warmest regards,

The Committee
