Sunday Sessions by the lagoon is just one of the popular uses of Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort’s newly created lagoon area.
At its second Sunday afternoon, last Sunday week, as ‘Sunday Sessions by the lagoon’, an estimated 200 people came during the four hours of relaxed entertainment by entertainer Jessica Lorraine.
The 19-year-old indie pop acoustics singer/guitarist from Nathalia, who has just launched her first single ‘Daydreaming’ on Triple J, complemented the venue with ‘pop-up’ bar and food stall.
“Serenity” was how visitor Sarah Paterson described the created landscaped area beside the lagoon at the side of the carpark by club ground staff. “Mum and Dad (Margaret and Graeme Paterson) are bowlers at the club and recommended this spot,” Sarah told the Yarrawonga Chronicle.
“It’s a great location. If there was something like this in Melbourne near where we live we’d go to it.” “We came along for the ride and what a ride!” added her friend Shinyee Mok.
Local school teacher Christine Cussen and husband Merv looked relaxed on deck chairs. Christine, a talented guitar/singer entertainer in her own right, easily related to Sunday Sessions by the lagoon. “What a fabulous afternoon of music with singer songwriter Jessica Lorraine, surrounded with beautiful sunshine, family and friends on the bank of the Murray River lagoon,” she said.
“It was a fabulous afternoon of relaxing in this authentic bush setting with kangaroos, ducks, birdlife all adding to the serene setting.
“I thank the golf club for the amazing free entertainment.”
Golf club resort marketing assistant Penne Tregenza loved last Sunday’s Sunday Sessions by the lagoon which she said resulted following discussions between the club’s Anna Barnes (marketing) and CEO Richard Hogg.
“I can’t believe the bird life here - the shags, the ducks, the cockies, the crows,” Penne said. “There’s so much nature, including lily ponds. So serene.”
Many weddings have been booked at the smartly created lagoon area which is also used for product launches.
