The city of Walnut Creek is making plans for an overhaul of the clubhouse of Boundary Oak Golf Course.
The city is hoping to do the construction in 2013, City Manager Ken Nordhoff said at a City Council budget planning retreat Friday at the golf course. The city anticipates an interruption of the restaurant and banquet business at the clubhouse for no more than six months, said Barry Gordon, director of arts, recreation and community service.
City Council members expressed general support for the renovations, estimated at $1.0 to $1.8 million in staff documents. The clubhouse opened in 1969.
"I'm for the most improvements we can afford," said Council member Gary Skrel, who qualified his remarks by noting that he was an avid golfer. "The community expects a quality facility and a high level of service."
"We could improve access by making improvements to these facilities," said Council member Kristina Lawson.
The city will prepare a detailed plan with financing operations, including the possibility of borrowing, said Nordhoff. That plan will go before the Park, Recreation and Open Space Commission and the City Council for a formal vote.
