The club received a further boost, with news the pro shop will also reopen on Saturday.
Insurance company assessors visited the site this week to inspect the damage. Club general manager Stephen Segrave said it was unknown how long the rooms would be out of action.
‘‘We’re still waiting on the scope of works to come through from the insurer,’’ Mr Segrave said.
‘‘We’re hoping to have that early next week.
‘‘We still think a six to nine months timeframe is what we’re looking it.’’
Competitions will resume on Saturday.
Shepparton Golf Bowls Club will operate a bar service on Saturday.
The club is investigating options for establishing a temporary bar at the site.
Events scheduled to be at the club have also begun finding new venues, with help from the club.
‘‘We’ve seem to have found that been lucky, other venues have been very accommodating,’’ Mr Segrave said.
He encouraged the public to come and use the course.
During the fire, the clubhouse roof was severely damaged and other parts of the building received smoke and water damage.
The club’s memorabilia was saved.
Mr Segrave thanked the community for its support after the fire.
‘‘The club is very thankful for the support not only from our members, but also from the public,’’ he said.
‘‘There’s been generous support and offers and we certainly feel very loved out at the Shepparton Golf Club.’’
