Open Day 2014

Following a fresh refurbishment and the announcement of VR Group Hotels and Resorts as its new owners, Wirrina Cove Golf Resort hosted its inaugural Open Day on June 8th 2014.

“We thought it would be a wonderful way to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday and the long weekend by welcoming the SA community to relax and have a fun Sunday at the resort,” said Rajesh ‘Raj’ Kashyap, Wirrina’s General Manager.

Designed as fun family getaway, the ‘Sunday #Funday’’ themed event offered a range of indoor and outdoor activities encouraging visitors to explore and experience the newly renovated resort.

“The response was phenomenal,” enthused Kashyap. “We were completely booked out for the long weekend and welcomed a little over 400 additional visitors on Sunday. Our intention for the Open Day was to showcase all aspects of the resort – indoor and outdoor. Guests and visitors were given direct access to the resort to see the changes first hand.”

In addition to inviting everyone to view the newly refurbished rooms, visitors and guests enjoyed the best of Yankalilla’s local community offerings at the indoor-outdoor market stalls hosted at Wirrina.

Everything from handcrafted knives, collectible toys and woodcraft to homemade baked goods, sweets and condiments were on display. The local firefighting service hosted a ‘Sausage Sizzle’ fund-raiser on the resort grounds, while the outdoor markets showcased the best of Yankalilla’s plants, gardening products, farm produce and stonework.

The star guests were undoubtedly the children who enjoyed an extensive line-up of entertainment including pony rides, a massive bouncy castle, face painting, a craft and art corner, and an all-access pass to the resort’s game and arcade rooms.

Wirrina Cove has signed on as a Playgolf WEEK Club in 2014 and will be holding various activities for the public to take part in during the week long national promotion 17 – 23 November.

Another major showstopper on Open Day was the live music preview from the upcoming Wirrina Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots Festival 2014 in September. “We are proud to announce the resort as the official venue for the 2014 Wirrina Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots Festival this September,” said Kashyap. A selection of artists performed live at the Open Day as a teaser to the festival in September.

“The guests enjoyed a sneak preview of some very special performances on Sunday. We are providing a special discount for confirmed ticket holders who would like to stay at Wirrina for the duration of the festival.
