As the NSW Government announces it's lifting regional travel bans from June 1, the Mollymook Golf Club is predicting a huge summer season.
"It has got the potential to be the biggest tourism season yet," Mollymook Golf Club CEO John Holt said.
"They're not going to want to go on cruise ships, they're probably not able to go to Bali and Fiji, they're going to want to travel domestically."
But the Mollymook Golf Club needs restrictions to continue easing to make up for lost revenue.
"If the government times it up and allows us to get a full load with good timing going into Christmas... if we can do that by October we could have the best summer ever," Mr Hold said.
"Even with a weak economy and negativity getting around it's still potentially going to be massive for this town."
John Holt has been a club manager for 31 years and this has been the most difficult period he has ever been through.
"Even on March 23 I still couldn't come to grips with it.
"We've got crisis management plans for a really bad accident or terrorism.
"I've got flood and bushfire plans, not once have I ever considered a virus."
But John sees there are positives to come out of the crisis.
"Out of adversity comes opportunity.
"We've got a lot of maintenance being done around the building, the sort of work that you're going to do but you never get time to when you're under full load.
"There's opportunity here for us to really re-engage with our community, and there's a lot of opportunity to change old cultural practices in our industry."
The government's JobKeeper program has been crucial to the club continuing some of its operations and keeping its staff on.
When the shutdown first occurred on March 23, the club had to stand down 76 of its 96 employees but with JobKeeper it was able to keep 71 of its employees on.
Unfortunately some staff didn't qualify as they'd been employed for less than 12 months.
But JobKeeper has allowed the club to offer food and alcohol delivery and keep its golf courses open.
So when restriction eased slightly on Friday, May 15 the club was in a position to reopen the bistro.
"You wouldn't open just for 10 people under normal circumstances, but when you add it to the fact we've got the chefs there anyway for the takeaway meals, with JobKeeper it was a no-brainer."
The club hasn't made much income from its current operations but it has helped retain staff and will make the processes of reopening easier.
"The key thing for us in the very beginning was to keep our team together.
"We didn't want to just stand everybody down and everybody goes in different directions. We've spent years building this team up.
"There's been a price to it but the investment will pay off because we're going to come back and they're ready to go."
While some clubs may struggle to reopen after the pandemic the Mollymook Golf Club hopes it can come back stronger and make up for the lost revenue during the bushfires and coronavirus.
