- Sports · Golf · Deniliquin · Edward River Council

The main­te­nance of De­niliquin Golf Club as a leisure and tourist at­trac­tion is again be­ing sup­ported by a water trans­fer from Ed­ward River Coun­cil.

For the third year in the row, coun­cil will sup­ply 200 me­gal­itres of town water re­serves to the club.

‘‘Once again, with­out the knowl­edge as to how the sea­son is go­ing to progress — dry, wet, ab­nor­mal con­di­tions — what we do know is that we need to se­cure water to keep the tourist at­trac­tion in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion,’’

De­niliquin Golf Club man­ager Norm Pur­till said in a let­ter to coun­cil.

‘‘Prior to COVID-19 hit­ting in March 2020, we were on the way to one of our best golf years with vis­it­ing golfers set to ex­ceed pre­vi­ous years, with some 5000 vis­it­ing golfer rounds.

‘‘We have 42 me­gal­itres of high se­cu­rity our­selves and, cou­pled with Ed­ward River Coun­cil’s con­tri­bu­tion, we should have a bright, and pos­i­tive fu­ture.’’
