Due to the fire situation, the 2020 Snowy River Golf Classic, East Gippsland’s Premier Stableford tournament was re- scheduled to the Australia Day Long weekend, and played on January 24th to 26th. Whilst the number were down, many visitors praised the club on the condition of the course, despite recent drought conditions and of course the bushfires in the district. Orbost Golf Club was fortunate not to have been directly impacted by the fires, but the devastation in the area was not far away.
The 2020 Classic saw Trophies valued at approximately $4000-, many being donated by local businesses. Friday was a 9 Hole Stableford Medley, commencing in the afternoon, and followed by a complimentary sausage sizzle and Happy Hour. This allows competitors and organizers a chance to catch up, and make new friends.

Block entry fee for the weekend is only $60.00 and includes complimentary BBQ breakfast and light lunch both days. Saturday evening featured a buffet meal and entertainment from around 7:00, for just twenty dollars per head. Children under 15 half price. Download an Entry form here: Classic Entry 2020
