Calling all club volunteers for the clean-up

Hi fellow club members, concession ticket holders and supporters,

Now that we have approval from Nelson City Council to help with the golf course clean-up, we want to get stuck in so we can get the course re-opened as quickly as possible.

From Monday (Sept 5) we will be organising daily working bees as well as a big public effort on the weekend of September 10/11.

During the week days we will be starting at 10am. I will send out more info about the Sept 10/11 big clean-up closer to the day.

The more people that can help – even if it is just for short bursts - the sooner we can re-open. We will be concentrating on cleaning up the smaller debris and leaving the bigger stuff to contractors.

If you want to volunteer, please either send me an email or text so I can put together a list for each day. We do need to record who is on the course and their contact details for health and safety purposes.

Please bring with you the following:

A high viz vest or a colourful top. This is a safety measure given there will be contractors with machinery also on the course.
A pair of gloves and a hat if sunny
Sturdy footwear and gumboots so you can wade across the river which is fordable.
A bucket, wheel barrow, rake or shovel
Something to eat and drink, although we will be providing some refreshments

You will be working as a volunteer under our guidance so you are responsible for your own safety.


To volunteer please contact me with your details and when you are available on:

027 4433494 or or


Kind regards
