only 17 braved the weather and played. We did not get one drop of rain the whole time, except the afternoon players would have copped a shower at the end. I’d say there would have been a lot of members who wished they had of played.

Looking After Our Golf Course

Golfers are enjoying winter golf when the grass is thinner and the ball runs longer. It is much easier to play from the rough now that the summer growth is gone.

Winter has provided some frost and strong, drying winds which have impacted the course.

The greens team work tirelessly to keep the course in best condition and golfers will have noticed repairs to the top of the moat wall outside the fenced golf precinct.

More than any other time of the year, winter is when golfers need to help with looking after the course.

Drivers of motorised buggies can play a significant role in protecting the course by driving where ever possible on the buggy paths. Golfers know the damage that buggies cause when they are taken too close to the greens and tees. Buggies are not to be taken closer than 15 metres from the green. The greens team will repaint the blue lines which mark the buggy boundaries. The Captains advise that ‘Any person in a motorised buggy who continues to infringe on the 15 metres rule, may be suspended from competition play’.

It is understood that a small number of golf members have their medical circumstances registered with the Captains and that they can only play golf with the aid of a motorised cart. The drivers of these members can approach greens and tees more closely but only in the context of the strict conditions advised.

More generally all golfers can help look after the course by ensuring divots are filled in and that extra attention is paid to filling divots on Par 3 tee blocks.

Social golfers’ inappropriate use of motorised carts is now being monitored more closely. Complaints by members and nearby residents about social golfers driving on greens, tees and through bunkers are being escalated to the Club Banora Duty Manager who is coming the Pro Shop or onto the course to challenge the offenders.

Golf Members who witness inappropriate behaviour should call the Pro Shop where a decision will be made to directly investigate or refer the matter to the Duty Manager.

Thank you to the vast majority of golfers who love the game and make every effort to protect our golf course.
