A big shout out to my staff for the spectacular turnaround to get the course in such great condition after the storms. Despite the tough conditions, their dedication to the course shone through and I thank them for their efforts cleaning up. Amongst dealing with debris/flooding, my staff managed to restore all the bunkers and have them back in play for the Foursomes Championships on Saturday which was a truly remarkable effort.

A special mention also to the volunteers that gave up their time during the week by helping to rake up piles of debris from fairways and rough areas. Myself and the staff appreciate your efforts and it definitely helped us to get the course back to normal conditions earlier. With only 6 staff on course (many Sydney courses range from 12-30 staff) having volunteers help out after large storm events is invaluable.

This week has seen us continually tidy up areas as water logging of surfaces decreases and we can get machinery onto more areas of the course without causing damage. Winter is definitely here with the roping off of waterlogged areas needed throughout the course during the cooler months to minimise damage to turf surfaces as well as aiming to keep your socks dry! Please stay away from roped areas and follow directional signs for carts and general traffic to help minimise damage caused throughout the winter season.

Another east coast low has been forecast to hit us this weekend, although I'm hoping that the weatherman is wrong on this one so our golfers won't end up looking like this again!
