Gosford Race Club facilities upgrade underway

Work is well underway for the Gosford Race Club facilities upgrade, with the Members’ Area and Raceday Office stripped and prepared for major renovation.

“It’s a very exciting time, not only for the Gosford Race Club but also for the Central Coast community,” said Gosford Race Club CEO James Heddo. The $4.3 million upgrade, fully funded out of Gosford Race Club cash reserves, will enhance patron comfort when attending events at Gosford Racecourse. “The racecourse precinct is a hive of activity and after years of planning, it is satisfying to witness the rejuvenation,” said Heddo.

A focus of this project is the goal of generating increased non-raceday revenue, with the Club recently receiving approval from Gosford Council to host up to 14 major infield events each year with a capacity of 10,000 guests for each event.

“Our Strategic Vision has identified that to remain financially viable, we will need to ensure that our venue is recognised in the community as a diverse, multipurpose facility that can be utilised throughout the year for weddings and conferences right through to trade expos, caravan and camping shows as well as music festivals and events,” said Heddo. It is expected that this project will be completed by the end of November.
