HEPBURN Springs Golf Club is among eight regional clubs across Victoria to receive major upgrades from state government funding.
Minister for Community Sport, Ros Spence, visited the club last Tuesday, June 28 and announced the state government was investing over $400,000 in the eight clubs through the Golf Infrastructure Fund.
Ms Spence said the program was about supporting the growth of golf and encouraging more people regardless of their age or skill level to play and enjoy the sport.
“It’s all about giving our community clubs even stronger foundations so more people can have a swing and the future of the game is even brighter at a local level.”
At Hepburn Springs Golf Club the project consisted of new double-glazed windows and blinds, an all-abilities toilet and male and female change and toilet facilities. Access ramps to the front and rear were also constructed.
The funding for the project provided by the state government was $157,000 with the club contributing $19,000 which covered additional items such as vinyl flooring, extra insulation and sundry project costs.
Along with club members, other guests at the opening included the Hepburn Shire Mayor Cr Tim Drylie, and Birch Ward councillors Cr Lesley Hewitt and Cr Jen Bray.
Club president Barry Files thanked all those who had played a part in achieving the result of modernising the clubhouse and making it more attractive to members and visitors.
Ms Spence added that the state government was very pleased to be in partnership with the golf club especially as it had made not only a financial commitment but also provided many hours of volunteer work in demolition, painting and concreting to extend the reach of the funding.
The golf club is keen to attract new members or anyone wanting to take up golf. The clubhouse has a well-stocked bar and is available for functions.
