The Mackay Turf Club is committed to lessoning our carbon footprint and with this in mind the club will now provide 1 “reusable polycarbonate glass” for patron’s use on the day in our outside areas. Each eligible patron will be issued with one glass at the beginning of the day, and it is our expectation they will use this glass throughout the day. Our staff will only be too happy to wash your glass if needed. Replacement glass will be at patron’s expense.
