Sandy Creek Golf Club trying to stay afloat
by Dane Heverin
Sandy Creek Golf Club in South Australia's world famous Barossa Valley wine region has been victim to hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage after a vandal sprayed the greens with poison.
Five different greens across up to 2000 sqm were damaged and the club are now preparing for the worst case scenario of losing all five greens.
To keep Sandy Creek's doors open, local resident Lauren Zogopoulos started a GoFundMe page.
"Covid has brought financial ruin on many small business's and throwing this on top of that we fear the club just will not be able to recover," Zogopoulos said.
"Please help! Even if it is 5 bucks.
"We are pleading with the local community, local members and even some big name golfers or other golf clubs to dig deep and help this wonderful club survive."
Local police are investigating the attack.
