NEW HOME FOR BONDI SURF CLUB
Waverley Council has received a development application from Bondi Surf Club for a new clubhouse to be built in conjunction with the planned redevelopment of the Bondi Pavilion.
The new clubhouse (see below), will cost an estimated $7 million, and would be financed jointly by the council and the surf club. It follows the recent redevelopment of the North Bondi Surf Club further down the beach.
Bondi Surf Bathers’ Club, founded in 1907, may be Australia’s oldest surf club. (However, Bronte Surf Club disputes this, claiming it was founded four years early in 1904.)
Bondi Surf Club is one of three surf clubs at Bondi, the other two being North Bondi Surf Club and the little-known Rose Bay Surf Club in Campbell Parade, opposite the North Bondi Surf Club. (It is the Bondi annex of Royal Sydney Golf Club.)
