The Rooirivierrif Clubhouse which burnt and got damaged in November 2018 is being refurbished. According to Granville Campher, the Manager for Sport in the George Municipality, the renovations must be completed by the end of June 2022. The Executive Mayor, Alderman Leon van Wyk, accompanied by the Portfolio Councillor for Community Services: Social Development, Libraries & Sport, Brendon Adams visited the construction site on Tuesday, 28 June 2022 to assess the progress of the construction.
The Rooirivierriif Clubhouse housed a golf club and was also utilised for local soccer and cricket clubs before it burnt down just over three years ago. Subsequently to that, an investigation was launched, and an insurance claim was submitted. The repairs are being done from the pay-out of the insurance claim and the renovations will be completed by the 30th of June 2022.
Mayor van Wyk is pleased with the progress made to renovate the clubhouse. “I’m delighted to see that the clubhouse is being restored to its original form and we are looking forward to the utilisation of the clubhouse for the benefit of sport in George,” he said.
