Members of Peninsula Kingswood Country Golf Club in Melbourne’s famous Sandbelt have extended their vision beyond the gates of their Frankston home and are giving back to the local community.

The Peninsula Kingswood Community Foundation (PKCF) was established when the merger club officially reopened in 2019 and they have expanded their philanthropic efforts since.

“We recognised that we were amongst one of the most disadvantaged communities in Melbourne. We didn’t want to be this island of privileged people among a community that desperately needs help,” Glenn Fernandez, chair of the PKCF Committee, said.
