I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to our newest team members who have recently joined our Club. Please join me in welcoming Grahame Manley, and Gunjan Kharel.
MRGC was up for a number of awards and our Graduating Apprentice Daniel Fulcher took out the Queensland Turf Management Apprentice of the year.
The renovations at the driving range tee are progressing well. The grass tee at the driving range has been heavily scarified, top dressed, and fertilised. This renovation is taking advantage of the growing conditions and will help level the surface for you to enjoy once again. The synthetic tee will be used until it recovers enough which should be in about 5 or 6 weeks.
We have begun to tidy up some areas to plant out. Kim has done a great job in designing a garden that will complement the new extension. The garden beds will have a combination of rocks and mulch with some small plants that will not impact the view from the clubhouse. There will also be a change to the garden areas at the driving range tee to clean up around the new paths and seating areas.
With the terraced deck area opening and operating from Friday 24/12/21, it was great to see and hear of so many members utilising it.
