Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today joined Andrew Gardner, CEO of Emu Sports Club and Ross Butcher, Club Captain to announce the success of their application for funding under the 2016 Community Building Partnership Program.
“It was my pleasure to recommend Emu Sports Club/Leonay Golf Course for a grant of $25,000 which will be used for installing hard surface paths on the golf course,” said Stuart Ayres.
Leonay Golf Course is located at the foot of the Blue Mountains where the local terrain has many sloping areas. Due to the course not being flat, people who may have a disability or seniors with mobility issues find is difficult to play the course. By installing hard surface paths to the needed areas, it will improve accessibility of the course
Mr Gardner said the current paths are either dirt or uneven and are a possible hazard to both social and competition golfers. The upgraded paths will provide safe access for all users and will enhance their golfing experience.
“While the NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering major infrastructure projects, we understand the importance of local community infrastructure projects which enhance local facilities,” added Stuart Ayres.
