The Country Club’s veterans’ week of golf tournament director Garry Mason declared the event an outstanding success.
“It was really successful, there was an average of 123 golfers per day from 37 clubs across NSW, Queensland and Victoria,” Mason said.
“Great friendships were struck and there was some great golf played.”
In a highlight for the club there were 25 first-time visitors to Cootamundra.
“They loved it and they say they’re coming back and have even booked accommodation for next year,” Mason said.
Despite the dry spell, Mason said the club’s greenkeepers and volunteers worked hard to present the course which was acknowledged by the visiting players.
Mason said the club was waiting on a government infrastructure grant to install an irrigation system to further improve the course.
