Investigation under way as fire rips through Wentworth Golf Club

POSTED ON May 19, 2019 @ 2:07 pm

At about 1.40am NSW Fire and Rescue firefighters began working to extinguish the blaze in the clubhouse and restaurant building, and spent several hours throughout the night trying to bring it under control.

Nearby residents told the Central Western Daily they heard an explosion before the building burst into flames, but as of Saturday morning the cause of the blaze was unknown and is the subject of an investigation.

The club issued a statement to its members via its Facebook page in which it said the building had been “destroyed”.

“We can confirm the clubhouse has been destroyed, the pro shop appears to be relatively unscathed,” the post read.

“For the time being the whole facility has been closed off and a crime scene has been established.”

The club offered its thanks to the firefighters for their efforts to limit the damage.

Saturday’s competition and social rounds have been cancelled.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or www.nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.

The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
