We are looking for more ladies to join our gardening group. We have made the decision to get together on the last Friday of each month. We are also on the lookout for donations of used pots.
It’s obvious the Fairway is still struggling with the salinity levels and looks a lot worse since the recent flood. We have begun a plan to give the fairway more attention.
You may have noticed some on course Melaleuca trees have been significantly defoliated to the point of looking dead. However, they aren’t dead they were attacked by sawflies or spitfire caterpillars.
With thanks to our staff, members & volunteers, they have achieved something extraordinary, the Maroochy River Golf Club IS BACK!!!!
Course Renovations- (to commence today after last tee of competition has gone – Golf Course closed Monday 14/02/22 & Tuesday 15/02/22). Mini Golf course will still be open.
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.
The course has coped a drenching in the past month, although, I think the Pro – Am luckily had the best of the conditions.
As the season when they are most active is upon us and it is a reminder that the golf courses provide a perfect habitat, here is the latest info on what to do and don’t do.
The course renovations went great despite the storm that rolled through on Monday afternoon which washed out our fairway coring and rubbing in for the rest of that day. Everything is starting to thrive under the weather conditions since and we are starting to get the course back into a bit of order with regards to bunkers and weeds. The surfaces will be back to what you are used to within a few weeks.
