Back to Poatina Golf Day

Saturday, October 25, 2014

The Poatina Golf Club is inviting the community to join them for a back to Poatina Golf Day to help celebrate Hydro Tasmania's Centenary. An old Hydro village which was built in the late 1950's to house the workforce working on the Great lake Scheme and the construction of the Poatina Power Station, which was commissioned in 1966.

The golf course itself was started by local volunteers; officially opened in 1970 by the commissioner of the HEC, it quickly became the social hub of the community.

To enter please contact

Cyril Patmore - 0400 694 481; or

Greg Williams - 0407 911 851;

Date: Saturday 25 October

Time: tee off starts at 9.30am

Cost: $20 per team

Hydro Tasmania has since sold the Poatina village which is now run by Fusion Australia, a home grown not for profit Australian Christian Youth & Community organisation. Accommodation, conference facilities and meals are all available - visit the Poatina Village website for more details around the Chalet form accommodation and meals.
