PESKY white ants that wreaked havoc on the Ashford Golf Club have now been cleared away, thanks to $155,146 of funding under the former government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall was excited to visit the golf club last week to see firsthand the completed upgrade works, which have helped forced the termites out-of-the-woodwork.

“When I visited the club last year the termite damage was visible and extensive,” Mr Marshall said.

“It is fantastic that window screens and doors have now been replaced, as well as the installation of wall cladding, eave sheeting and trims.

“Termite baits have been installed to catch any last little critters who may still be lurking about.”

Mr Marshall said the funding was also used to make the building more accessible and user-friendly.

“The new ramps and railings will drastically improve access for all members of the community,” he said.

“Well done to President Alan Beveridge and committee members on the terrific upgrades.”

Mr Marshall said further funding was also secured late last year which was used to sand and polish the club’s wooden floorboards.

“The old, dilapidated floorboards have been repaired, sanded, and polished,” Mr Marshall said.

“Honour boards and entrance signs have been refurbished and updated.

“What a magnificent accomplishment for the small, community club which is the beating heart of Ashford.”
