“The funding will go towards upgrading the driveways and pathways surrounding the Wellington Golf Club helping to improve the aesthetics of the club.


“This will keep it attractive option for social and organised events, weddings, regular golfers and visitors to the course.


“Not only will it improve the appearance of the golf club, there are also environmental benefits as the resurfacing and timber edging on the Club’s driveways will help reduce water runoff and erosion.
