Moat Water Revives Golf Course Dams

The strong winds over the weekend caused significant evaporation of the Golf Course dams.  Sunday players observed much of the dams base exposed and large areas of cracked mud.

First thing this morning the head green keeper commenced refreshing the dams from the moat water.  The current strategy to protect and prolong the golf course is to keep the base of all dams covered with water.

Today provided a timely reminder of the advice given by the Twin Towns CEO at the recent Internal Clubs Consultative meeting.  Fresh water in the moat is critical to the survival of the Golf Course and the Bowling Greens at Club Banora.  A full story on this topic is in the May Twin Towns News – click here to see.

A significant issue for golfers is that many residents favour salt water flowing in the moat.  In the 17 August edition of Tweed Daily News Tweed, Mayor Katie Milne in her regular article made the following comment
From flood planning to Banora Point drainage – I also called for a report on the poor old polluted waters of the Western Drainage Scheme in Banora Point, and to see if the community could become more involved in its care which all councillors supported.

If the moat became saline, the salt water would not be suitable for irrigation of the golf course or bowling greens. This would be a major risk to golf continuing at Club Banora.

The Twin Towns Board and Executive are committed to the Deed of Agreement with the Tweed Shire Council that acknowledges the need of fresh water from the moat for irrigation of Club Banora land.

Golfers will continue to be updated on matters concerning the golf course and particularly any water issues.


Monday 28th August, 2017 is Vietnam Vets Day in conjunction with Vet’s Competition and will be a Green Fee Free Day.
After Presentation, Vets will be invited to share a beverage in respect of our Vietnam Veterans.
