Birmingham golfers are set for a new clubhouse almost four years after their previous facilities were destroyed in an arson attack.
Designs for the new two-storey clubhouse at Pype Hayes golf course in Erdington are expected to be approved by the council's planning committee on Thursday.
It will include changing rooms, a pro-shop, a small gym, greenkeepers storeroom and a cafe and bar which could be available for functions.
There will also be a first floor balcony overlooking the 18th hole.
The previous clubhouse at the council-owned course was destroyed in April 2009 and golfers have used facilities based in portacabins ever since.
The clubhouse is the first major investment from Mytime Active.
The not-for-profit social enterprise last year took on a 50-year contract to run Birmingham's seven municipal golf courses.
In a submission to the planning committee, Mytime said the expansion of social club facilities would help the club thrive.
A spokesman said: "Within this cafe area, it is possible to create an intimate meeting space or venue, flooded with light and views across the course.
"This additional provision is a vital opportunity for this once-thriving golf club to become part of the community once more, with the possibility to host events of all types for residents.
