Trentham wins 2019 Victorian Golf Club of the Year
Trentham President Keith Webster accepts the award on behalf of the club.
Trentham Golf Club is the 2019 Victorian Golf Club of the Year. The award was decided at the Victorian Golf Industry Awards presentation at the Arts Centre, Melbourne on Friday August 9.
The award recognises the club's outstanding recent performance in management, including financial management, water security, membership retention, innovative flexible memberships, our popular annual tournament, comprehensive web site, other online technology usage such as membership payments and tournament entry, member communication, volunteering, our environment plan, and beginner clinics, especially for women.
Over the years, the club has developed the course and rebuilt all greens to USGA standards, developed social media usage (our Facebook page now has 1325 followers), instituted OneGolf competition management, developed a great food offering and visitor welcoming through our “Birdie Kitchen”, remotely monitored the clubhouse for security and installed our green fee ticket machine.
