A new shed goes a long way

In response to Lane Cove Country Club's request to help purchase a new shed to house their members' clubs, the New South Wales Golf Foundation was able to contribute a large part of the cost in the way of a grant to the Club. As they are only a small Club, had they purchased the shed outright, it would have put quite a severe strain on their available funds.

President of the Lane Cove Country Club, David Haugh, wrote to the Foundation recently stating that “Your welcome assistance in enabling us to provide this facility for our members is very much appreciated. It will make it easier for some of our older members to continue playing.”

In a show of appreciation, the Lane Cove Country Club has affixed a plate to the shed indicating the Foundation's generous assistance.

The New South Wales Golf Foundation considers all grant applications and encourages individuals and clubs to seek support; not just for financial hardships, but to help fund projects and services to develop golf in NSW.
