We have secured free of charge a substantial amount of high quality clean fill that will enable us to implement some of the course improvements outlined in our strategic plan.
The majority of this fill is being used to extend the current mounding on right hand side of this hole back to the watercourse that crosses the 18th fairway. The mounds will be shaped, grassed and planted with approximately 15 to 20 suitable trees.
The new work must be treated as compulsory GUR until the work is complete.
This new work will add to the ambience of this already picturesque finishing hole.
Irrigation lines have been installed on the 4th fairway to facilitate its extension from the current fairway back to the men’s tee.
What remains of the fill will be used to mound around the back of the 6th green similar to the 3rd hole.
The extension of the 12th fairway is looking good and Damian predicts we will be walking on it before Christmas.
SHORT GAME PRACTICE AREA
Our fund for this area is growing however we still need a further $8,000 before any work can commence. We hope to have a drawing soon to give the impression to show the finished area will look when built, and as soon as this is received I will publish it.
CART STORAGE EXTENSION
As our President advised in the Club News, the club has been successful in our grant application of $10,790 from the State Government for an extension to our cart storage. A sketch design is been prepared and a DA will be submitted to the council in the near future. There is a continuing need to extend our storage areas and to allow for an increase of the clubs carts.
To those members who ordered club sweaters and vests a reminder that the stock has been received and is ready to be picked up and paid for at the Pro Shop.
