Eynesbury Golf Club

In 2004 Demaine Partnership was successful in a limited competition for the conversion of the historic Eynesbury homestead and associated outbuildings, for use as a golf clubhouse.

The clubhouse forms the centrepiece not only for a new golf course but also for the new Eynesbury township. This township of 3000 homes is modelled on the urban patterns of a traditional Australian Country township. The Clubhouse design builds on the existing heritage assets to reinforce this character, with the homestead, original Stables and Staff wing sensitively converted to preserve the historic character of the estate. A new transparent conservatory structure located in the original homestead courtyard functions as a spike bar, uniting the adjoining lounge and dining areas within the homestead. A new double skinned corrugated iron roof over the stables allowed the interior appearance of the building to be retained in its conversion to a proshop, while meeting contemporary requirements for thermal insulation. New structures were designed to complement the adjoining buildings, including a new buggy store and conference centre.
