HORSHAM Golf Club president Leo Delahunty said he was grateful for the community’s support after the club met its fundraising target.
After a decade of setbacks, the club recently called on the community to help raise $300,000 to avoid the potential of going into administration.
Mr Delahunty said board members held a meeting on Sunday night to discuss the club’s future.
“We’re so grateful to the members and the wider Horsham and district community for pledging this money for the club,” he said.
“It’s been a fantastic response. We don’t know the exact amount just yet, but we will once we’ve confirmed all the pledges.”
He said the club’s next step would be to look into its operational processes.
“We will be looking at the operational profit and losses and how to address the issues around restructuring our balance sheet,” he said.
“There will be a few challenges over the next few weeks.”
The club has also seen a surge in membership numbers over the last week.
“At the end of June we were down to about 444 members. We are now at more than 500 members,” he said.
