The club is struggling to stay viable and desperately needs some new members to stop it from collapsing. Life member Don McKay says he's saddened to think the local golf course could become another "used to be in Halls Creek".

"It's just a shame to see these sporting bodies fall in a hole and it's just not good for the town."
