Back on the black – South Broken Hill Golf Club gets repair funding

South Broken Hill Golf Club is to receive funds to mend storm damage on the golf course.

Broken Hill has seen its fair share of torrential rain this year and it took its toll on the local golf courses.

The South Broken Hill Golf Club, like the Broken Hill Golf Club, saw walkways washed away, roads damaged, fairways strewn with debris from the water flowing over and sadly, out the South a number of blacks (putting greens) washed away.

Golf NSW, Golf Australia and the PGA (Professional Golf Association) have united to assist golf clubs across NSW get back in the swing through small grants to help re-establish some of the smaller things that may not be covered by insurance.

The money comes from proceeds raised through the NSW Golf Club Flood Relief Fund.


Golf Australia said facilities from the Far North Coast down to the Victorian border and west out to Broken Hill impacted by the disaster will receive cheques ranging from $2500 to $7500 to help fund repairs to damaged courses and facilities.

Golf NSW also assisted Wilcannia Golf Club, earlier this year, to fix their course after storm damage.

The Broken Hill Golf Club did not receive any funds from Golf NSW as they are associated with Golf Victoria.
