How to Apply for Club Grants

Media Release: Grants from your Club are now available!

Rich River Golf Club Ltd is committed to supporting the local community through donations and ClubGRANTS with funding contributed to numerous local charitable and sporting organisations. The Club supports these organisations through cash or in-kind donations including provision of the sporting facilities for a number of charity and fundraising events held during the year.


The ClubGRANTS (formerly CDSE) Scheme is a shared arrangement between registered clubs that earn over $1 million annually in gaming machine revenue and the NSW State Government. It is funded by a 2.25% gaming machine tax rebate provided by the State Government and aims to assist community organisations to meet local community development and community service needs.
