The Orange Ex-Services’ Country Club golf course is set to become the preferred site for our $25 million multi-sports complex.
A report to Orange City Council’s meeting on Tuesday night recommends council change its preference to the Bloomfield site instead of the current preferred site off the Northern Distributor Road in north Orange.
The north Orange site is undeveloped paddocks.
The report said changing the preference would be subject to the golf course land becoming available.
It is planned under a merger of the Orange Ex-Services’ Club and the Wentworth Golf Club, backed by members last month, golfers would eventually only use the Wentworth golf course, therefore freeing up the Country Club course land.
The golf club has been told its lease on the Crown Land site is unlikely to be renewed.
The council report said the sporting fields would take over the site of the nine (of 18) golf holes adjacent to Sir Jack Brabham Park.
Detailed plans for both sites including the layout of sporting fields for summer and winter sports have also been revealed.
