GUILDERTON Country Club has been recognised for among other things its range of function services and packages and great customer service.

The club won the Best Club Function Facility (Small) at the 2016 Clubs WA Awards for Excellence on Saturday, June 11.

Guilderton Country Club president Bob Johnson said the Best Club Function Facility (Small) award specifically recognised the club, which had the best venue and function facility presentation, range of function services and packages, great customer service and staff training and practical function policies and procedures. The club won the award ahead of the Albany Club and the Fremantle Buffalo Club. Racing and Gaming Minister Colin Holt said the awards were a chance to thank the clubs, and particularly the volunteers who ran them, for their hard work, passion and dedication.

“A fair share of the heavy lifting carried out in the club environment is usually done by volunteers and is largely behind the scenes,” he said.

“The Clubs WA awards recognise excellence in a number of areas relating to services that clubs offer the local community.

“With more than 320,000 people in WA registered as members of a club, organisations were often at the heart of a thriving community.

“A healthy club is often a reflection of a healthy community and I’m thrilled to see regional WA so well represented among the nominees, with Dunsborough and Districts Country Club, Albany Italian Club and Kununurra’s Ord River Sports Club all winning awards.

“At last count, rural areas accounted for about 59 per cent of total club membership.  This is even more impressive when you consider only 20 per cent of the state’s population live in rural areas.”
