Member for Barker Tony Pasin has teed off at the Blue Lake Putt Putt to celebrate the completion and opening of the new Limestone Coast attraction.
The project received $170,000 in funding from the Coalition Government’s Building Better Regions last year and Mr Pasin said it was fantastic to see the project completed after just nine months of construction.
“The Limestone Coast is a tourism destination for domestic and international visitors and the investment into this attraction is an investment in the region and its future,” Mr Pasin said.
“It’s fantastic example of how the Coalition Government’s Building Better Regions Fund has delivered for regional communities. By backing local projects like this, the Federal Coalition Government has delivered for the local economy and now and into the future,” Mr Pasin said.
The 18-hole course has opened in time for peak tourism season and has already attracted 500 bookings for December.
Mr Pasin said it was a fantastic addition to the Crater Lakes area of Mount Gambier and would boost the activity offering to the Limestone Coast community.
“Not only is this boosting the tourism offering but is a great asset for the local community. It’s contributing to making the Limestone Coast an even better place to live, work and raise a family,” Mr Pasin said.
