Club officials said it had been incredibly saddening to see the loss of life and property around the Bega Valley in the past two weeks.
A spokeswoman for the club said it had also taken a toll on the tourism industry with members noting a number of local businesses struggling throughout the shire.
Information is available on the club's website or you can call the pro shop on 6495 6280 for more details. "We hope to raise some much-needed money on the day but also to raise some spirits," a spokeswoman said.
The Australian Golf Industry Council are also working to raise funds and welcomed news of clubs holding their own fundraisers.
"Our industry is heartbroken at the devastation that has been caused by these fires,'' said Gavin Kirkman, chair of the AGIC.
