Charity-aid golf at PMGC

Golf officials from the Merimbula-Pambula Golf Club said it had been incredibly saddening to see the loss of life and property around the Bega Valley in the past two weeks.

A spokeswoman for the club said it had also taken a toll on the tourism industry with members noting a number of local businesses struggling throughout the shire.

The Pambula-Merimbula Golf Club will hold a charity golf round this Sunday with proceeds going to the Bega Red Cross to distribute locally.
