TRAVELLERS to Mossman will soon be able to enjoy a unique RV park experience as the Mossman Golf Club prepares to open its new RV park at the end of May. 

The club has been trying to get an RV park approved for the last six years, aiming to bring in additional revenue and help keep the club afloat. Just 12 months ago, Douglas Shire Council approved the club’s second development application, allowing the organisation to immediately start on the new project. 

Now the park is nearing completion and awaits some final touches before the official opening. Club captain John Carney said the decision to build the RV park was made to help alleviate financial strain on the club and keep it operational. 

“It gets back to dollars and cents and there are so many golf clubs down the coast going broke,” he said. “We found the RV park was going to be a great way to make sure the club continues for many years.” 

The new 18-site park is expected to bring an estimated $70,000-80,000 annually, with residents of the park able to enjoy the golf cub amenities when open. This includes a new three-net driving bay where locals, club members and RV park patrons can practice their swings. 

An $8000 net has also been installed to ensure residents of the RV park and their vehicles are kept safe from straying golf balls. 

The park is in the final stages of completion with hopes to open at the end of the month and begin operating by 1 June.
