HCC, Augur Investments partner to renovate Warren Hills Golf Course

Harare City Council


THE City of Harare has partnered Augur Investments to renovate Warren Hills Golf Course which they want to be a world-class 18-hole golf course, including the driving range and club house.

The golf club has been lying idle for several years due to neglect.

In a statement, City of Harare acting chamber secretary Warren Chiwewe said the golf course was owned by Sunshine Developments, a joint venture company between the local authority and Augur Investments.

Under the joint venture agreement, the City of Harare will provide land and Sunshine Development will contribute US$7 million for development.

Augur Investments chief executive Kenneth Raydon Sharpe  said: “We are currently working on development plans for the golf course. We believe we, as private developers, will make it world-class.”

He said they had engaged Peter Macintosh, a top designer of golf courses in Africa, to redesign the golf course.
