As regular and often considerable consumers of electricity, petrol and diesel in daily operations, the tax has the potential to have a visible impact on golf clubs with their energy bills.

The prospective modelling gives golf clubs approximate differences to their energy costs once the tax is enacted.

As one of the first sports to provide this information to its industry, Golf Australia is committed to assisting clubs with information for their current and future planning.

Clubs with queries relating to the report are welcome to contact Golf Australia’s Head Office on +61 3 9626 5000.
