Tuross Head successful in My Community Project application.

Recently 61,437 people voted for their favourite projects, resulting in 248 projects sharing in the $24.7 million available.
Just two projects were successful in the Bega Electorate to receive funding. The Tuross Head Country Club was one of two Bega Electorate organisations to be successful. The other was the Eden Fitness Trail promotors.

Thanks to the preparation and presentation of the work carried out by Andrew Gordon and his support team the club’s project was one of the projects selected. Tuross Head Country Club won the right to install a new car park surface.

Following the successful grant from the My Community Project ,Tuross Head Country Club lost no time in arranging for Downer EDI Mogo to lay 30mm hot mix over the existing damaged surface car park. The work was been completed within two days and has converted a dangerous eyesore into a safe attractive area.

An inspection of the course by the NSW Minister of Transport Andrew Constance, and a meeting with Stephen Hodge, Andrew Gordon and Mike Birks, helped establish to the state government the role the club performs in the community.

The facility caters, not only for their own members, but it is also the hub for many other organisations which include social, sporting and community service groups.

Tuross Head receives Golf NSW course grant

By |2019-10-08T17:28:33+11:00October 8th, 2019|Categories: Golf News|

Tuross Head Golf Club members Bruce Lidbury – Captain Peter McRae – Secretary / Treasurer Steve Swanbury – Vice President Tim Watson – Course Superintendent Martyn Black – Golf NSW met on Wednesday August 15th last year to review drainage works carried out over the last 3 years and asses its impact on course quality and the clubs viability into the future.

Course Superintendent Tim Watson was keen to embark on a programme of installing large “rubble” drains to intercept the slow seepage water which was creating many “boggy” areas in fairways. Prioritizing the areas to be tackled, was always going to be critical as to not only the success of the works themselves, but how it would be received by members and visitors.

The use of the tractor mounted “back-hoe” on steeply sloping ground is difficult even for very experienced operators, and the smooth surfaces that have been established over the drain lines are 1st class, and a credit to Tim Watson, his small team and the club volunteers who helped with these works. There is no doubt that the areas that have been drained will cope with future rain events and proved increased course usage of players and golf carts which puts the club on a better financial footing.

Martyn Black stated “The results achieved thus far are quite remarkable and Mr. Watson’s quality of workmanship is worthy of high praise .The club has achieved a great deal in the 3 years since my original visit and this report will recommend a $3000 Club Support Grant to add to the clubs many and varied fund-raising ventures which will help secure the clubs viability. The club should also seek the help of Golf NSW and the Government Relations arm; to assist in grant applications for the installation of a twin row irrigation system which would really be a huge lift to course quality.

Thank you once again for allowing me to visit and I wish all concerned the best for the future.”

THCC men’s golf president Andrew Gordon  states “The  $3000 grant has since been  received from Golf NSW for the supply of materials which have arrived on course for the drainage project on the 8th fairway.”

Tim will need assistance from our dedicated volunteer workforce.
