New Inverness golf clubhouse gets the go ahead from planners

Plans to build a new multimillion pound clubhouse at an Inverness golf course have been given the go-ahead.

Local authority planning officials used delegated powers to approve the development at Torvean Golf Course in the west of the Highland capital.

A major redesign of the 18-hole course is currently under way at the site as part of the city’s long-awaited West Link road project.

Plans unveiled for new club house at Inverness golf course

Now work on a replacement of the clubhouse is due to get started at the course in the autumn.

The revamped facility is expected to be constructed by the end of next year and open to players by summer 2019.

Golf club president Hamish Spence has described the development as “very, very exciting for golf in the Highlands”.

Last night, he said: “We are obviously delighted to see the transition to the new course is take a step closer.

“We’re still looking to be on the new course by late spring or early summer of 2019.”

The clubhouse will include a club room, changing rooms, offices, a shop, a bar and also a new juniors room.

It will be larger in size to allow for the new juniors room, which is part-funded by SportScotland.

The present clubhouse was originally a croft with an extension put on in the 1980s.

Demolition work on the existing facility will not start until the new clubhouse is built.

The new clubhouse is part of an £8.2million project to reconfigure the layout of the course.

The work is required to make way for part of the £43.5million West Link, which will connect the A82 Inverness to Fort William road to the southern distributor road via a new River Ness bridge and canal crossing.

Giant steel beams were lifted into place for the new River Ness bridge in March, with the project penciled-in for completion by 2020.

The West Link is due for completion by 2020.

The road, which was in the planning stages for more than a decade, is expected to help ease congestion in the city centre and open up new land for housing development.
