Go Golfing Launches Bushfire Recovery Tour
Go Golfing Travel, Australia's biggest and most awarded golf travel company, has launched a bushfire recovery golf tour to support New South Wales communities ravaged by fires earlier in 2020.
Two-thirds of New South Wales' south coast were scorched by the fires.
Peter McCarthy, owner of Go Golfing Travel, made a commitment to help the bushfire affected communities back in January.
Firstly Go Golfing donated cash, however Peter McCarthy believes this Bushfire Recovery Golf Tour will have sustained benefits for these communities.
"This tour will inject dollars into hotels, golf courses and local tourism businesses."
"Better still, we are promoting these communities and their golf and tourism experiences to a national audience of 175,000 golfers and to 300,000 international golfers through our global partnerships."
Starting in Bowral, the tour weaves its way through Mollymook, Bateman's Bay and Narooma before finishing in Merimbula.
These businesses worked tirelessly to reopen, only to have no tourists due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
The rugged clifftop setting, ocean views and best-kept greens in NSW has seen Narooma Golf Club consistently ranked in Australia's top 100 as is the Hilltop Course at Mollymook. Mount Broughton, Catalina, Moruya, Tura Beach and Pambula Merimbula round out this 'must-play' golf trail.

"The bushfires were devastating. The community rallied during the fires and this spirit along with an outpouring of support from all of Australia and around the world allowed us to again open our doors. Unfortunately, Coronavirus restrictions have largely kept tourists and visitors away", said Guy Chapman, General Manager, Club Catalina.
"Make no mistake, these golf courses are top class and the club managers are keen to look after us. On tour we'll host a free breakfast for the first responders and volunteers who came to the aid of so many during the crisis," McCarthy said.
The itinerary features country charm and warm hospitality, rich cultural experiences and celebrated local attractions such as the Bradman Museum and Cricket Hall of Fame, Coomee Nulunga Cultural Trail and Mogo Zoo.
Go Golfing Travel's Bushfire Recovery Golf Tour runs 9 to 22 February 2021. For the full itinerary visit www.GoGolfing.net.au or call 07 5508 2250.
