Trentham has taken out the golf club of the year award, presented at the Victorian Golf Industry Awards in Melbourne on August 9.

President Keith Webster and committee member Anne Cooper accepted the award on behalf of the club.

"The award is a great recognition of the club's work over a long period of time in improving the course, club management and its offerings to both members and visitors," Webster said. "As a club managed by volunteers, the award recognises not just the work of the committee, but every member of the club who pitches in and helps."

The award recognises the club's achievements in financial management, planning, volunteering, technology, memberships, environmental planning and beginner clinics, especially for women.

Trentham recently developed a strategic plan, completed a water security program, developed flexible pay-for-play memberships and put its membership system online.
