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.

How to Apply – ClubGRANTS Guidelines and Funding Categories

Category 1 expenditure on specific community, welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. Applicants must apply directly to the relevant Local Committee or Local Committee Convener. Click here for more information.

Category 2 expenditure on other community development and support services (eg traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups).

Category 3 expenditure represents 0.4% of a club’s gaming machine profits over $1 million which is placed in a state wide pool to support large scale sport, health and community infrastructure.

Category 1 Applications are considered by the Murray Shire local ClubGRANTS Committee which has been convened to oversee the application process, consisting of club representatives, Council and DoCS. Click here for more information.

Category 2 As of 1 September 2022, all NSW clubs are now required to process their community support through ClubGRANTS Online. This means all ClubGRANTS applicants must complete an online form which will capture the necessary information to assist clubs in complying with the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS Guidelines.
The following tips will help applicants transition to this new online process:
• If your organisation has never used ClubGRANTS Online, you will need to set up a new applicant account here before completing an application form. You will receive a verification email to complete the process (check your spam/junk folder if you haven’t received it). Then, click here to create a new application.

• If your organisation has used the system but you don’t have your own user ID, follow up with the person that does have a user ID and they can add you as a new user by accessing their “Settings” under the “Your Account” tab.
