The Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort was named a fi­nal­ist in the run­ning for Vic­to­rian Golf Club of the Year at the 2017 Vic­to­rian Golf In­dus­try Awards.

The awards are a joint ini­tia­tive be­tween the Pro­fes­sional Golf As­so­ci­a­tion, Golf Vic­to­ria, Golf Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria and the Vic­to­rian Golf Course Su­per­in­ten­dents As­so­ci­a­tion de­signed to recog­nise the peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions which have made sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments and con­tri­bu­tions to the golf in­dus­try through­out the year.

Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort was named with three other golf clubs as nom­i­nees in the cat­e­gory of Club of the Year in­clud­ing Bairns­dale Golf Club, East­ern Golf Club and Kew Golf Club.

“Vic­to­ria boasts many qual­ity golf clubs so to be recog­nised at this level is very pleas­ing,” said Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort CEO Richard Hogg.

“On be­half of our di­rec­tors, mem­bers and ded­i­cated staff, I’m pleased we had been ac­knowl­edged as a fi­nal­ist.

“To bring home the award would have been sat­is­fy­ing af­ter a very tough year with sig­nif­i­cant flood­ing etc. but we can’t be dis­ap­pointed at this re­sult.

“A lot of hard work has gone into plan­ning, di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion and im­prove­ment of our fa­cil­i­ties and this ef­fort has been re­warded by mak­ing the top four clubs.”

YMGCR club pro­fes­sional Evan Droop was also nom­i­nated as Vic­to­rian Club Pro­fes­sional of the Year for his ded­i­cated work along­side teach­ing Golf Pro­fes­sional Shane Casley.

“Evan is an­other as­set to our lo­cal golf­ing com­mu­nity and his nom­i­na­tion was truly de­served,” Mr Hogg said.
