Grab your golf bag and best caddy, because the Echuca Back 9 Golf Course is back in action from tomorrow.
Under the management of Echuca Neighbourhood House, the council has been working with the new owners who have signed the 12 month licence.
“We are excited to be working with Echuca Neighbourhood House and look forward to the reopening of the nine-hole golf course.”
- Campaspe Shire Mayor, Cr Adrian Weston
Since closing at the end of January, council has continued to water and mow the site, keeping the course clean and green.
With a small section of the course located on Crown Land, the licence agreement is currently with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) for final approval.
Echuca Neighbourhood House are excited to receive the keys and are ready to be “open for business”.
“We’re currently seeking corporate sponsorship from local businesses and membership subscriptions from the community to support the ongoing operation of the course.”
- Echuca Neighbourhood House Manager, Ms Shandel Keele
“It’s imperative to have the ongoing support from the community to ensure the long term survival of the golf course operations.”
