Hunter Valley golf clubs struggle to stay open despite seniors’ living developments

Published on

As we reported here last week, the Shortland Waters Golf Club in Newcastle has gone into administration despite village operator Aveo’s 300-unit retirement village saving the Club from closing two years ago.

Now the Newcastle Herald has revealed two more clubs are in strife. The Merewether golf club is holding a member vote next month on a seniors’ living project after being sold to the Belmont Golf Club for $4.8 million last year.

Cessnock Golf Club is also looking for a new buyer after going into voluntary administration with around $11 million in debts in April.
