Nambucca Veterans Week of Golf.
At the above event in July I conducted a survey of all visiting players in an attempt to discover the value of a Week of Golf to the Nambucca Valley business community.
Players were asked to estimate expenditure during the week in the following areas.
Accommodation (Caravan site, Cabin or apartment /house.)
Fuel, Groceries, Golf Fees, Meals at Restaurants, caf├ęs hotels etc, Clothing purchases at Pro shop or local shops and Other.

*Of the surveys completed the findings were as follows. (This Week of Golf is restricted to visitors only.)
  • Total expenditure on the completed surveys was $76445
  • This equates to $637 per person.
  • If I extrapolate this figure to the 147 golfers and 10 nongolfing partners this figure now exceeds $100,000 spent in the valley over the week.
The results of this survey are quite amazing. With 54 Weeks of Golf and 6 Championships played throughout the state during a year this would indicate that Veterans golf is worth, conservatively, an estimated $5 million dollars to the many communities conducting events. Tournament Directors and Committees are encouraged to use this information to suit their needs when organising events.
