Golfers now have a place to rest out of the weather on the Junee Golf Course, with a new multipurpose shelter open.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke met with members of the Junee Golf Club to view the completed shelter which was partly funded through a $5,297 Local Sports Grant.

Ms Cooke said the new shelter would be a boost for the club.

“So much work has been undertaken here to create this multi-use space which can be accessed by paramedics in emergency situations, shelter course users from storms and has the potential to become the site of renewable energy infrastructure,” Ms Cooke said.

“It’s clear the community are invested in making this golf course the best facility it can be and it is clearly regularly enjoyed by locals and visitors.”

“This work would not have happened without the dedication of the club’s volunteers, their tireless efforts are building on a wonderful recreation space.”

Terry Trinca said the shelter was a valuable addition to the course.

“We are very happy with the finished work,” Mr Trinca said.

“This is a multipurpose space which will shelter people from the elements and the shed is designed to take 600kg of solar panels. The close proximity to the pump house means that we will be able to put those solar panels on in the future.”

“The NSW Government has funded half of this project, with the other half evenly split between the Club, donations and tradespersons giving their time and work.”
