SYC Clubhouse Improvement Works

SYC Clubhouse Improvement Works – 2023 & 2024

In response to essential facility needs and member feedback, SYC is in the process of refurbishing the SYC member food and beverage outlets. 

The completed stage 1 works included the consolidation of the two kitchens at the northern end of the building and a new bar. We have also consolidated the once divided Harbour View and Members’ Bar, creating the one enlarged Members’ Bar & Bistro. We have repositioned some doors as well, so the entire northern end of the clubhouse upstairs is now ‘Members and Member guests only’.  It’s also now just the one liquor licence. These changes have been well received and given us positive feedback that we are on the right track. The new look Members Bar is pictured below.

Stage 2 Works 

Commencing on 3 April 2024, there are two main components to this next stage of works

  • Firstly, the entire northern podium requires repair as the membrane has failed and the tiles are in disarray. This all gets removed and a new membrane and tiling will replace it.
  • Secondly the construction of a members indoor/outdoor wet bar on the northern podium offering weather protection. Including the stage 1 improvements, the enlarged members-only area increases our indoor, all-weather seating capacity by 35% (from 220 to approx. 300 seats). On the lower podium we are integrating a family-friendly space where kids can have fun with parents keeping a watchful eye over them.

The stage 2 works are scheduled to finish mid-October 2024. 


The member experience

We believe the works will mean the overall member hospitality experience will be a much improved one – a more modern member area with a fresh feel, more efficient food service, better layout of the bar and point of sale, more bar surface area, increased capacity, new and refurbished furniture and furnishings, the addition of member accessible plumbed water stations and finally, all of the unsightly cleaning aspects (glassware) will now be out of sight.  We have also added a QR code ordering system to complement the traditional service model. These are just some of the things that will contribute to a better member experience.
