Update on Golf Course Closure

Posted on: 9 March


Dear Golfers, After another 48 hours of torrential rain and destructive winds, we have finally seen some sunshine today which has allowed us to get out on course and assess the damage. Many limbs were brought down and no less than 6 large trees have been uprooted. On top of this many of our fairways are sodden which has limited the access for our Green Staff and further slowed down the recovery process. Today was spent picking up as much debris as possible and stock piling this near our access gates on the 3rd and 10th holes. When possible, we will begin to mow the rough and fairways and start to prepare the greens, but this still may be a few days away. Given the above we have no choice but to keep the golf course closed until further notice. To give a rough idea to golfers, it may be possible to re-open next week from the 16th or 17th, but we will have a better idea by Monday the 14th. Please keep an eye out for future communications.Please be advised, many courses in Sydney are in a similar position to us, if not worse. We have seen videos of Beverly Park flooded, Cronulla GC as a giant lake, and the entirety of Lynwood GC has been inundated by water. Courses on the north shore such as Bayside GC and Mona Vale have also been engulfed by floodwaters. We are sure many of you are itching to get out there, but please know we are doing all we can to get you on course ASAP!(Scroll Down for Photos of the Course – 09/03)How Can You Help Out?The Pro Shop will remain open for Retail and Coffee from approximately 9:30am – 4:30pm midweek and limited hours on the weekend (see opening times below).

Currently there are limited things volunteers can do, due to lack of access and the danger of falling branches and trees.Pro Shop Opening TimesThursday and Friday9:30am – 4pm Saturday10am – 2pmSunday 9am – 1pmMonday9am – 3pmTuesday 9:30am – 4pm Please check the booking timesheets for further information, or phone the Pro Shop to listen to the pre-recorded message – Use the Pro Shop Number 9523 3882. We will provide further updates when possible.
