Match New safety sign 4th tee

A new safety sign has been placed at the 4th tee, warning golfers of balls being hit from the 3rd hole. Please do not tee off on the 4th hole until you and your playing partners are comfortable it’s safe to do so.

New safety signs 10th & 11th Tees

Due to safety concerns regarding the playability of the temporary 10th hole (par 3) a new safety screen has been placed behind the green for golfers to stand, whilst players are teeing off the 11th hole.  Signage has been placed at both the 10th & 11th tees explaining how best to manage player safety. Please read these and follow the instructions.

Greens 12th & 13th Greens

These two new greens are taking shape, with the 13th green & surrounds growing in nicely. The 12th green shaping & capillary bunker drainage is complete. The green surface was seeded last Friday 6th October. The surrounds will be turfed next week. As previously advised we are hopeful to have both reporting new greens in play early next year.

12th Fairway D/A Update

The D/A reporting process is nearing completion and we anticipate to lodge this with council by the end of October. Unfortunately, a timeframe on approval cannot be anticipated at this time. Members will be updated as developments occur.
