A popular golf clubhouse and community hub in Gisborne has been destroyed by fire overnight.


At around 2.35am this morning, 17 CFA vehicles alongside Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) responded to the structure fire on Daly Street.

Over 60 firefighters were involved in the response, where crews discovered the Gisborne Golf Clubhouse, spanning approx. 50 x 30m was fully involved in fire.

Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria also attended the incident.  

CFA District 2 Commander Paul Turner was on scene this morning and said when crews first arrived, the clubhouse was on fire from end to end.

“Our crews worked to contain the fire to the building, and given it went through the roof it collapsed on itself and has sadly been completely destroyed.” Paul said.

The fire was deemed under control at 4.22am and CFA vehicles and personnel remain on scene.

The cause of the fire is not deemed suspicious and investigations are underway with CFA and Victoria Police. It could take some days for the cause to be known.

“Our crews will remain on scene mopping up and cleaning up the site throughout the day,” Paul said.

“The golf club will be closed for the rest of the day, so please steer clear and wait to hear an update from the club before returning.”

An advice message was issued to the community earlier today, however, Paul reminds locals to keep their windows shut and to be aware of smoke lingering over town.

“The club is a community hub for the residents of Gisborne and the Macedon Ranges, and we know they will be hurting.”
