Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh congratulates Sawtell Golf Club on its $100,000 grant under Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Mr Singh said this significant funding has been allocated for the club’s Installation of Accessible Pathways project.

“This important initiative will see Sawtell Golf Club’s installation of accessible pathways on their picturesque 18-hole golf course,” Mr Singh said.

“These accessible pathways will provide a more accessible golf course for Sawtell Golf Club members and guests and will attract a wider range of user groups from the Sawtell community and beyond.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said in the past five years the Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.

“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing through sport or community events,” Mr Toole said.

“It’s the little things that make a big difference to the way we all work, live, play and do business, and the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government are delivering the projects that make a difference to everyday life right across regional NSW.”

Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund will support local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
