“Babinda Golf Club will receive $35,095 to repair their flood-damaged golf course,” Mr Pitt said.

“Sport and recreation clubs are doing it tough at the moment.

“Many clubs have sustained varying degrees of damage as a result of the cyclone and the floods.

“We’re now in recovery mode and these funds couldn’t have come at a better time. It will help Babinda Golf Club get back on their feet.”

Mr Pitt said sport and recreation clubs such as the Babinda Golf Club are the hub of local community life.

“They’re a place to relax and unwind, socialise and get in a bit of fitness in the bargain. With these funds the Babinda Golf Club will be able to get their course back into shape,” Mr Pitt said.

While funding applications have closed, support and assistance is still available, including a 1800 173 349 advice line to help clubs access money, skills and professional advice on how to get their club
back up and running.

“The Bligh Government understands the impact the cyclone and the floods have had on Queensland families.

“A round of golf at the Babinda Golf Club is a great way to maintain a healthy lifestyle and enjoy our great outdoors,” Mr Pitt said.
