As the current Coronavirus situation has developed, our Club has made decisions based in part on the advice of Golf Australia, who have been working with the State & Federal Governments to clarify their restrictions and their implications on Victorian Golf Clubs.

Late on Friday 27th March 2020, Golf Australia provided Victorian Clubs with the following advice:

‘It is Golf Australia’s recommendation that, based on the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services directive issued as part of the Victorian Government’s Stage 2 restrictions regarding COVID-19, all golf clubs and facilities should close as soon as practicable until April 13, 2020.

The directive that prohibits social sports gatherings applies to golf clubs and facilities, which are classified as ‘recreational facilities’ under clause 5 of the directive.
A copy of the directive is located

While this is a difficult time for the golf industry and wider society, Golf Australia is committed to working with clubs and facilities across the state to ensure that we return a vibrant, strong industry.’

Based on this information, the Club (including golf course) will be closing after play today
(Saturday 28/03/20), until April 13th 2020.

Every Member of the Club, Committee and Staff have faced difficult challenges during these unprecedented times, whether it be financial, health, business or family, and the Club has provided some respite in differing ways for many over the last couple of weeks.

Although we are saddened to not be able to come out and play, socialise, volunteer or work at the Club for the time-being, we look forward to reopening and things returning to some sort of normality after all of this comes to an end.

In the meantime, thank you to those Members who have sent words of encouragement and support, and to all of our staff who have been battling through and are very much personally affected by this situation as well.

We wish everyone the best of health and well-being, and look forward to seeing you back with our ‘Cranbourne family’ as soon as we are able to reopen.

Further communications will be sent posted here in due course.

Kind Regards,

Errol Kaplan

Cancer Council
Longest Day of Golf 2019

A magnificent effort by our Members who undertook the Longest Day of Golf on Monday 16th December 2019, raising a combined $21,800 for this worthy charity!

14 Cranbourne Members played 72 holes in one day to raise funds for the Cancer Council, with the ‘Crannies Grannies’ again leading the way contributing $15,846 between them, trumping their total raised last year. Our other Members who helped raise money and played the 72 holes were Matthew & Geoff Cook, Zac Anthony, Alex Desa, Anand Thillaisundarum, Shane Pietersz & Denham De Silva, also raising contributing significantly to the cause.

Ladies President Elana Green was part of the ‘Crannies Grannies’ team and not only had enough energy to play all 72 holes, but even managed to speak on 3AW during her 3rd round as well! Click on the file below to hear the interview:

Birds of Cranbourne
