Reminder: As of the 1st February all green fees will be increasing by $3.00 per game. Although this may seem unpopular to many members, it is necessary due to the combined costs of Greenkeepers wages, Council rates and a significant increase in Club Insurance which is placing the Club under financial stress. As Burnett is primarily a Bowls Club it is only reasonable to expect that the bowling members share the cost of these ever-increasing expenses to ensure that the Club remains viable and open. Thanks for your understanding.
