The Goulburn Golf Club will be more accessible thanks to Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman today met with the Goulburn Golf Club who will be delivering the project at the Blackshaw Road facility.

“I am so pleased that the NSW Government is contributing $152,197 towards lift installation, better pathways and upgraded amenities for the Goulburn Golf Club.

“The Goulburn Golf Club is an important community meeting place, catering to not only golfers but many others users – seniors, families, community groups and more. It is a destination not just to play golf, but to connect with friends and family and to feel a part of the local community,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

Goulburn Golf Club President Barry Christoff welcomed the funding.

“Achieving this critical funding will help us install an external, light commercial platform lift at the front of the club, as well as upgrade the disabled toilet. This project will result in improved accessibility and inclusion for disabled members and visitors, and a significantly safer alternative than stairs for people with mobility issues,” Mr Christoff said.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said in the past five years the Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.

“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing,” Mr Toole said. 

“It’s the little things that make a big difference to the way we all work, live, play and do business, and the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government are delivering the projects that make a difference to everyday life right across regional NSW.”

Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund is supporting local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
