Course Master Plan

Based on further considerations of Member’s feedback and also Course Sub-Committee requests, the Course Master Plan has now been updated by the Architects Golf by Design.

One of the areas scheduled for improvements as part of the Course Master Plan is the “first impression” area around the Pro Shop, 1st Tee, 9th Green and 10th Tee.

Accordingly, the Course Sub-Committee recently asked the Course Architect to submit a 1st Draft more detailed Plan of what could be achieved in these areas. The works in these areas would ideally also include improvements to pathways. Please click on the link below to view the 1st Draft Plan of these areas.

Both Plans are now available for viewing in the breezeway area of the Clubhouse.

Course Improvements – April 2020

Course Works:
16th Hole bunkering changes (Ref link below for more pictures) filling in the fairway bunker and reshaping the front bunker, spraying Kikuyu to kill off and reduce this type of grass on the course, general clean up and enhancing the feature of our waterways.

3rd Hole – Fairway Bunker Drainage Works
The broken pit in the bunker was replaced which allowed the team to recess the pit to 100mm below the surface. This allowed the team to remove the grate that was constantly in play for golfers and to stop more sand being washed into the pit through the grated pit lid.
The Course Staff also took the opportunity to replace the bunker sand over the drainage lines and newly recessed pit. This will help the white washed sand drain more efficiently into the drainage system faster and eliminate any flooding.

We also aim to complete a number of other small projects in the next few weeks so we hope Members will notice some real positive changes when they come back.

If any Members have some “spare time” and would like to volunteer to help the Course staff on the course improvement works, please contact the General Manager
