The days of taking a swing at the Queenstown Golf Club could be numbered unless business picks up.
“We’re only a year away from having to wrap it up,” he said.
Mr Parish said the club had only been able to stay open this long thanks to a couple of “really dedicated volunteers” who had “put a lot of time into the place and effort”.
But theses volunteers weren’t enough to keep the golf course open during this winter.
“We just couldn’t afford to put fuel in the mowers to constantly cut the course for no one to play,” Mr Parish said.
Mr Parish said the meeting was “a bit of a cry for help” but the club had already been contacted by past members across Australia.
“Ultimately our locals is what we need,” he said.
“If and when the (Mt Lyell) mine gets up and running, we might get a few more people in but we can’t rely on that either.”
Mr Parish encouraged everyone to attend the emergency meeting even if they weren’t club members.
Queenstown Golf Club will hold its emergency meeting on at 11am on December 15 at the club on Lynchford Road.
