Oberon GC celebrates town’s 150th birthday

The town of Oberon in the Central Tablelands of NSW celebrated its 150 year birthday in July. As part of this celebration the town held a Heritage Street Parade down the main street. Many community groups and town businesses entered the parade with floats decorated to show the history of their organisation. Oberon Golf Club decorated a float to represent the unique characteristics of Oberon Golf Club with kangaroos, Lake Oberon and many trees represented. Organisers of the float borrowed some heritage golf clothes and clubs from the Sydney Golf Museum and these were a feature of the float along with some &aposlive&apos Heritage golfers. The main street of Oberon was lined with crowds of spectators, including the Governor of NSW, Professor Marie Bashir, to cheer on the very colourful parade.
