Club looks for more signage
“We’ve talked about this at board level,” he told the Yarrawonga Chronicle. “We have to have signage up like we did years ago showing directions.
“But this time there has to be more signage, especially for visitors who are not golfers. We aren’t just about golf – we’re a club.
“Golfers can always find us but many nongolfing tourists will not be aware of where we are. There has to be signage on the Yarrawonga side of the weir bridge and in Gulai Road /Melbourne Street at least.”
Currently, the many motorists from Victoria who use the weir bridge on their way to the club resort simply turn left off the weir bridge road into the golf complex.
That situation, however, will no longer be possible from Friday, October 15 – the date advised for closure of the 1939-opened weir bridge.
That advice, from the Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA), Transport for NSW and Regional Roads Victoria, was reported in last week’s Yarrawonga Chronicle.
“From the Victorian side, motorists will need to ‘detour’ an extra kilometre or two via the Yarrawonga Mulwala Traffic Bridge to reach the club. Not very far, but far from direct travelling.
Hence the need for adequate signage,” Mr Savy said.
“With so many tourists in better times to Yarrawonga and Mulwala, many are unaware of the golf club resort’s location in Mulwala and the green route (alongside the railway line) needs to be decided as the preferred route for the new Yarrawonga Mulwala Traffic Bridge to make it easier for golfers from Victoria.”
Prominent signage with map in strategic locations following the October 15 closing of the weir bridge is essential according to Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort’s CEO Peter Savy.
