19th (spare) Hole

Members as previously advised, construction of the 19th hole which is located at the 11th hole was imminent. The project has been brought forward by a few weeks and will now commence next week (19th July) and ready for play by late November.

What this means
- Both Men’s and Women’s 11th tees will be relocated to the practice tee area.
- Additional 11th tee boxes will be constructed as part of the project.
- To preserve the tee, practicing from this area is strictly prohibited.
- Members, please be aware of the surrounds as with all construction zones and be attentive to directional & alert signage.

General
The 19th hole will be in play for the majority of the next 3-4 years to enable the timely replacement of greens (2 per year starting with 11th & 12th) and minimising temporary greens during construction.

At the conclusion of the replacement program, the 19th hole will become the 3rd nursery along with others between the 2nd and 4th fairways.

Board of Directors (Steering Committee) | 14 July 2021

Maintenance Facility

Construction of the new Maintenance facility to be located around the 10th rear tee area is scheduled to commence in September this year.

Preparation of the site includes importing a significant amount of clean fill which has become available.

Consequently the 10th rear tee will be closed in the coming weeks and all play will be from the social / ladies’ tee.

Included in the project is the construction of new tees between the current back and front tee offset into the Southern side. Unfortunately, this work cannot commence until after civil works are completed.

The new tee’s location will slightly reduce the hole length and provide direct alignment with the fairway importantly reducing the likely hood of errant balls reaching the road.

Please be aware of the surrounds including trucks and machinery movement in the carpark and when walking or driving to the 10th tee.
