A Brimbank club has been named the best family club in Victoria.
The Deer Park Club picked up the award at the recent Community Clubs Victoria awards, where it was also named as home of the best entertainment program.
It is the second consecutive year the Deer Park Club has been recognised at the awards, after winning the award for best renovation last year.
Deer Park Club general manager David Thompson said the club was proud to have been recognised for its family environment and entertainment program.
He said one of the highlights of the club’s entertainment program over the past year was the outdoor cinema nights for children.
“Our club has, and continues to, grow substantially and we really do offer something for everyone. Our club welcomes everyone and our members feel as though they can have a go at barefoot bowls or karaoke on Friday in a fun and relaxed environment,” he said.
“At the end of the day, you want to go somewhere that feels like family.”
Mr Thompson said being recognised as one of the best clubs in Victoria had capped off a great year for the club.
“First and foremost, our focus is on our members and patrons and their enjoyment of the club … to be recognised in this category means we’re getting it right,” he said.
