Parkland Golf Course Par-3 Victorian Championship to be held this week.June 4, 2014 3:15am
Kyabram will receive a major economic boost as golfers from across the state arrive for the Par-3 Victorian Championships this week.
Parkland Golf Course will play host to the championship for the tenth year, with a full field of 144 women and 90 men competing.
Parkland president Vin Sleeth said he believed more than $50
‘‘I base it on if you have roughly 230 golfers, let’s say there are 50 locals, you have 180 golfers in town,’’ he said.
‘‘They all spend on accommodation plus food and probably average $300 each or more so if you multiply that, it’s very good money.
‘‘I know all the motels are full, everything is full accommodation-wise, and of course the women they can do their shopping and the men support the local establishments with some drinks so it’s a very good earner for Kyabram and the outlying areas as well.’’
The championship is the only 18-hole par-3 event on the Victoria Golf calendar and Mr Sleeth said it was giving the club and the town a good reputation.
