Moruya Golf Club

PROJECT: New cart shed
ASK: $450,000
STATUS: Funding required

The town of Moruya has much to offer visitors and holidaymakers as well as residents. Set between oceans and wilderness on the beautiful Eurobodalla Coast in southern NSW, it has something for everyone – food, art, hiking, water activities, history, you name it. Fun fact: local stone was used in some of the pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, leading to the locals referring to their home as Granite Town.

And then there’s golf. Along with nearby Narooma, Moruya GC has become popular as a golfer’s destination with its championship layout, attractive tranquil setting and its famous 40-metre double green to the ninth and 18th holes. It’s a must-play stop.

With its local population ageing, members with physical disability and increased visitor demand, the need for extra carts and a facility to house them has become imperative. Moruya GC estimates the fleet of six carts should be increased to around 30-40, while the current cart storage facility is simply inadequate and needs a complete rebuild.

Increased patronage as a result will have significant flow-on benefits to club and community. Club general manager Josh Prowse said, “The town of Moruya benefits as a whole from having a golf course as an attraction for visitors and a recreational activity for locals to keep healthy and fit.”

“The town of Moruya as a whole benefits from the golf course.”
