Course Report

We received 105mm of rainfall at the end of July. The Cook's river broke its banks, spilling onto the surrounding holes. Considering the amount of rainfall received, the course has held up well. All debris and any damage were taken care of as soon as it was feasible to be on the golf course.

The greens will be renovated in the coming weeks, starting on Sunday 16th August at 1.45pm. We will be aerating with a 12mm hollow tine, applying amendments and topdressing. Recovery time should be between 4-5 weeks however recovery is always weather dependent. The course will be closed on the 17th and 18th to allow us to complete the much needed works. During the course closure it is hoped to also get the tee's cored and amended. 

This week we have applied a foliar fertiliser to the fairways for definition. All areas were mowed this week as it is dry enough to do so. Gardens will continue to be mulched, native grasses pruned, and weeds attended to. The rough had a selective application of herbicide for broadleaf weeds.

The right hand side bunker on the 2nd hole had the rear edge, re-shaped, sand re-distributed and new turf laid. The work was necessary due to the face collapsing under foot traffic. The turf laid during construction never established properly. The turf around bunkers, when established is crucial in stabilising the edges. We will identify other bunkers with the same issues and conduct similar work. 

Stay healthy and happy golfing.

Please Respect Other Members

In recent times it has become a very common occurrence that booking sheets will be full in the lead up to any particular competition day, only to have a large number of members cancel their bookings the night before or morning of the booking.

This practice is resulting in other members missing out on tee times as they cannot get a booking until the very last minute and due to the short amount of notice being given, many tee times going unused which would have otherwise been filled.

As a courtesy and out of respect for other members, we ask that bookings not be made if the member booked is not going to play that round. Also, if a booking is made and you become aware that you will no longer be able to keep that booking, please cancel this booking as soon as possible, rather than the night before to give other members an opportunity to fill these times.

Over the coming weeks if the issue persists, booking sheets will be monitored and individual members continue this practice will be identified and may incur restricted access to time-sheets.
