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.
