Murray Bridge Golf Club (SA) to upgrade from a par 68 to a par 71 course

POSTED ON June 16, 2020 @ 3:32 pm

Murraylands golfers will not have to go far to have the chance to tackle a championship course as the Murray Bridge Golf Club prepares to upgrade its course from a par 68 to a par 71 course.

The club has received Federal Government funding of $339,000 to upgrade the course and clubhouse facilities as part of the Building Better Regions Fund.

Murray Bridge Golf Club president Mark Bolton said the club was delighted with the announcement, with the upgrades making a difference when it came to holding events.

“We are really excited about this project as it will transform the golf course into a par 71 championship course, including new driving range and renovations to the existing bar, kitchen and restaurant facilities,” Mr Bolton said.

Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin said BBRF projects strengthened local economies,with thousands of jobs expected to be supported throughout regional Australia in times of drought.

“Communities in Barker are continuing to show amazing spirit and strength as they support each other through these tough times and I am glad to see this latest round of BBRF will provide additional support at such a crucial time,” Mr Pasin said.

“Upgrades to the Murray Bridge Golf Course add to the Murray Bridge offering.

“It’s projects like this that will transform communities and help ensure our productive and vibrant region remains strong, resilient and prosperous in the long term.”

Extension to the golf course is made possible through the Burke Urban Gifford Hill Joint Venture, which was instrumental in moving the Murray Bridge Racecourse from inner Murray Bridge to the outskirts of the city.

The organisation has donated land for the new holes and was contributing $350,000 to the earthworks required.
