For those golfers who sometimes ‘find the trees’, you would have noticed the beautiful flowering gum (Corymbia ficifolia), earlier this year, located between the 3rd and 4th fairways.
Just one example of the many beautiful trees on our course!
Welcome back to our first eNews for 2018. We trust that our members have enjoyed the Christmas and New Year period. Trading has been excellent for the Club with many members and visitors playing our course, which is in superb condition.
Jokers Wild is now up to $6600 with 7 cards remaining. June continues to outfox our lucky drawers. Our Friday night numbers have been excellent with the raffle income in excess of $1300 per week.
We have decided to run a BBQ dinner on monthly ‘Cup days’. Our Saturday golf is building nicely and we hope this will add to that success.
Our relationship with South West Music Regional Conservatorium continues this year with live music provided by the Shuffle Club on Sunday 4th March at 4pm. We hope to see many of our members enjoying “Swing On The Grass”. The Shuffle Club will also perform at the Tocumwal Golf Club on 3rd March. To book your tickets phone SWM on 5881 4736.
If you have any good photos taken on course or in the club house, which would be suitable for our newsletter please email them to Cheryl Fuller (email@example.com). Members can also enjoy the latest news on our Facebook page.
Here we are in the middle of summer and we have used less than half our allocated water budget. This has been thanks to some heavy rainfall events where we can catch water through the town drainage system and also thanks to the 30 extra megs allocated to us by Edward River Council. So water usage will not be a factor this year.
The lawn tennis renovation has gone well with only one staff member required over 3 days. The courts should remain in good condition from now until Easter.
On course, the greens have ‘bared off’ badly due to an unexpected response to the pre-emergent summer grass herbicide which we have used several times before without any issues. The only explanation we can come up with, after consulting our chemical reps, is that the root system had not fully recovered from our own renovations which were carried out late in 2017, making them susceptible to a normally harmless chemical. A different herbicide program will be used next spring/summer.
The greens are now at 4mm and have been treated with fertiliser and calcium to get them through this high temp period. You may have noticed the invasion of ‘nutgrass’ through the greens and ‘couch’ around the edges. Both will be treated when the weather is favourable and the temperatures decline sufficiently.
The tees are the best they’ve ever been and that’s even with the high usage from holiday golfers. We only need to keep up with fertiliser applications at the moment.
The really big improver has been the fairways. As we have mentioned in earlier reports the spray out of invasive weeds was never better in spring and has set us up for the improvement we now see. There are still some bare patches about that could use some plugging to hurry them along but time spent chasing water and mowing is a limiting factor for us.
High temperatures and windy days have regularly made a mess of the course with debris keeping both staff and volunteers busy. Our volunteers are also busy attacking the khaki weed, parramatta grass and paspalum around the course. This is greatly appreciated by our on course staff. It would be great to see some new faces joining in.
The wet area in front of the 2nd green is a particular problem during consistent watering periods. Drainage and a grate is not an option as it is right in the landing area. We will need to strip the turf back and reshape the ground undulations so that surface drainage is achieved. We will do our best to carry out this work and minimise disruption to play.
