February Update

Rain and More Rain – Flooding creek and growing grass! Pretty well sums up February.

We also purchased another 30sqm of couch turf to put around the 9th green so as to minimise the impact of rain washing away sand from the existing turf.

The course is looking a picture even though a lot effort is reuired keeping the grass under control.
