Breakers Country Club Confirms Amalgamation Discussions Are Proceeding With Mounties Group
It seems there really is no stopping Australia's number one club group, Mounties Group, as they confirm today that they are currently in discussions with Breakers Country Club regarding a potential amalgamation.
This news follows an expression of interest released in late 2020, to engage clubs that were interested in merging with the successful club giant.
Located on the cusp of Terrigal lagoon, with views spanning across the water, Breakers consists of two levels that cater to a large proportion of Central Coast residents. The Club offers alfresco dining facilities, a kids' play area, a large outdoor TV screen as well as cafes, bars, and sporting facilities. The Club itself is home to the Terrigal Wamberal RSL Sub-Branch, the Breakers Mens and Ladies Golf Club, the Breakers Mens and Womens Bowling Clubs, and the Terrigal Darts Club.
Dale Hunt, CEO of Mounties Group believes that Breakers is one of the larger Clubs on the Central Coast with possibly the most potential to unlock.
"Just like Halekulani Bowling Club, Breakers is not a struggling club - it has been very successful and is a popular choice of venue amongst locals, but they want to do so much more. Our unique intergenerational approach to club venues and our profit-for-purpose business model continues to intrigue and excite other clubs to join us and it is this ethos that attracted Breakers."
"We are in a strong position to be able to help a club such as this unlock their full potential, and we are excited to do just that."
"From the food on offer, to the training and career development available to staff, to facilitating members' access to free and trusted healthcare, our vision for the future is simply to continue making the lives of our members and the communities in which our venues operate better. If we can do that for even more people across NSW by acquiring more venues, then we will continue to amalgamate," Dale said.
The Board of Breakers Country Club and Mounties Group commenced amalgamation discussions earlier this year and are currently working towards the development of a Memorandum of Understanding. Breakers would mark the third Central Coast venue to join Mounties Group in less than 12 months with Halekulani Bowling Club and Club Wyong having recently completed the process in March and April this year.
Chief Executive Officer of Breakers Country Club, Ken Pearson, said that joining the Mounties Group family would ensure a much brighter future for the Club, its staff, its members and their local community.
"Our Board, together with the Board of Mounties Group, is focused on discussing what is important to each club. Mounties values and vision for the future resonated with us and we can already see the fantastic benefits Club Wyong and Halekulani Bowling Club are enjoying as a result of the amalgamation which is exciting for us to witness," Ken said.
Amalgamation is a lengthy process and there will be a series of member information sessions that will take place, a members vote and ultimately the decision of the Liquor and Gaming NSW Association before the amalgamation is secured.
