Rosewood Golf Club Back into the Swing
Published on 16 May 2019
Member for Albury, Justin Clancy MP joined Snowy Valleys Council’s Mayor Cr James Hayes today in Rosewood to officially celebrate the opening of the newly renovated Rosewood Golf Club.
Mr Clancy and Cr Hayes joined members of the Rosewood Golf Club committee to officially recognise the improvement works undertaken at the Club.
Identified as a key community project for Rosewood, the Rosewood Golf Club Committee received $236,266 from the NSW Government’s Major Projects Infrastructure Fund to make improvements to the club’s building.
Mr Clancy said the Major Projects Infrastructure Fund was developed to deliver infrastructure projects to enhance the attractiveness of regional NSW towns as vibrant places to live and work.
“I am pleased to represent the Minister here today, and congratulate the Rosewood Golf Club and its committee on seeking out this funding assistance and successfully bringing this project to life,” said Mr Clancy. “The upgraded kitchen and hospitality facilities will be well used by the Rosewood community for significant events, parties and to assist in it being a focal point for the Rosewood community”.
The improvement works at the Golf Club included a kitchen extension, the addition of a kitchen server area and the installation of a large back deck that wraps around the side of the building.
The upgrades will better equip the Golf Club to host weddings and Rosewood’s extensive list of annual events, including the Rosewood Rodeo, Stockman’s Challenge Premiership, Tractor Pull Truck and Car Show, and the Country Roundup Music Festival. The Club also hosts annual cutting and team yarding and barrels and last year hosted multiple equine clinics, including two overseas instructors renowned in their respective equine disciplines, Scott Amos and Monty Bruce.
Snowy Valleys Council Mayor Cr James Hayes congratulated the Golf Club Committee and said the project is a real testament to what can be achieved when community, Local and State Governments come together with a common vision and goal.
“Rosewood has a very full calendar of annual events and the Golf Club is always at the epi-centre of all the action. Thanks to funding from the NSW Government and the dedication of the Golf Club committee, locals and visitors can now enjoy a meal from the newly renovated kitchen and watch Rosewood’s big events and entertainment from its impressive new back deck,” Cr Hayes said.
The community led project was completed in April 2019 by James Waters Carpentry and Rosewood locals christened the new refurbishments with a bonfire and fireworks night prior to the official opening.
