There will be two reasons to celebrate at Beverley Park Golf Course on Saturday.

The day will mark the official reopening of the golf course with the new water channel.

The $1.3 million project created a water channel that worked with the design of the golf course while being a practical and sustainable solution to water flow management in the area.

It was made possible through funding from the former Kogarah City Council, the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and the NSW Government’s Floodplain Risk Management Scheme.

The completion of the project coincides with the 75th anniversary of the club.

Earlier this year a dinner was held to mark the occasion with around 350 past and current players and staff sharing their memories.

Speaking at the time club President Frank Bates said Beverley Park has always been known as a friendly club.

“You go back years and years when the pennants players would come back here,” he said.

“We used to have inter-club comps between Bexley, Kogarah, Bardwell Valley, Kareela and Cronulla too back in the 80s and everyone would end up back here for a drink to enjoy themselves.

“They’re great memories, the club has always been that really friendly sort of a club.

The reopening event will be held at the Beverley Park Golf Course on September 24 from 12pm.
