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.

Vets Golf Special Par

By |2019-10-16T16:50:04+11:00October 16th, 2019|Categories: Mixed Golf, Uncategorized, Vets Golf|

Fifty four players registered for the Special Par event, a game unique to Tuross Vets where a score less than handicap can result in a multiple plus score on any hole. This event typically benefits the higher handicap golfer.

Winner on the day was John Cox with an unbelievable score of +10 for just nine holes, reinforcing the opportunities to benefit from below handicap scores. John was followed home by Margaret Downey on +7, and Derek Hoare on +5 on count back from Colin Fletcher. Balls or chocolates were won by Teri Swanbury, Rick Brake, Peter MacDonald, Tony Crook and Richard Wharton all on +4, and then Greg Smith, Paul Green, Kaye Lunt, Greg Bush, Ann Ware and Herb Muriwai on +3. This week’s infamous Bradman award was a close finish, being taken out by Blaise Madden in a tight finish.

Nearest the pins went to John Cox on the 4th, Greg Smith on the 6th, and to Terti Swanbury and Peter MacDonald on the 7th. Steve Swanbury completed a happy Swanbury morning by taking out the Accuracy drive on the 5th.
