July Course Update - 6th July
The rainfall total since July 1st stands at 285mm. July average for the last 10 years has been at 30mm. We now have had 1384mm YTD. After the course was drying out throughout good weather in June, we now are back full circle with puddles laying on fairways and access an issue. The 9th green received no flooding this time which is a positive. Normal areas that remain wet are the 1st fairway, 9th fairway, top four holes 5,6,7,8 and the 12th. Today Wednesday 6th we managed to just get a cut on our greens, and shovelling up bunker washouts as taking machinery around the course is extremely hard and damaging. Clean up on other areas has begun but will take time and are prioritised.
With no sunshine and little wind, we are not too hopeful we can get golfers out this weekend as rain continues to fall just now and drying days will not be forth coming. Please check for updates as we try and make a call at Midday Friday for the weekend in the best interests of player safety, enjoyment, playability, and potential damage to the course.
Major Pennants Update 16 May 2022
Sunday 15th May – Major Pennants Semi Final v Oatlands Golf Club @ Campbelltown GC
Despite all the rain during the week Campbelltown remained open and the semi final went ahead as scheduled.
This week there was one change to the team with Will Meredith coming in to replace Jay Choma who stood himself down to play Masters for the club.
Conditions as you would expect were less than ideal with Golf NSW deciding to play preferred lies through the green.
Matt Brinkworth led the team away and on the front 9 found himself two down on a couple of occasions but began to rally on the 9th which he won to turn one down. Then on the back nine he won holes 10,11&12 to take a two hole lead. His opponent then birdied 14 to cut the lead to one. This lead he held to the 18th where he was on the green in regulation and could only watch as his opponent only just missed chipping in leaving Matt two putts to seal the victory.
Will Meredith played at 6, he struck the ball well but struggled on the greens having four 3 putts which ultimately cost him the game 2&1
Mick Albee at 5 also had his troubles with a misbehaving putter missing a couple of short putts that also gave him a 2&1 loss
Chris Neville at 4 turned square after 9 but on the back 9 had a plugged ball in a hazard that was marked 10m back from the creek and then a slip of the club at the following hole cost him those two holes and he also went on to lose 2&1
Troy Norris the only undefeated player in the team went out in the 3 position and always led but lost holes 12&13 to see his lead cut to 1, but he responded with a win on 14 to steady the ship and went on to a 3&2 win
Jason Webb at 2 also always had the lead in his match generally 2 up but his opponent birdied 15 to test his nerves, but as the current club champion he showed steadiness to close the match out 2&1 with a solid par on the 190m 17th to win the hole
Ben Warby in his customary position of 1 also had control of his match throughout the day and was able to seal victory at the 17th as well 2 &1
This gave the team a 4 – 3 victory ensuring a place in the final against The Lakes GC but more importantly gaining promotion to Division 1 for next season
Congratulations to all and we look forward to the Final at a date to be announced.

Solid tines will commence on the Monday and go deep into the profile, down to 250mm in depth. Wednesday and Thursday will see some 8mm coring tines pull out cores and thatch. This material will be removed from the green and then followed by a heavy sand layer. After rolling and rubbing in of the sand, fertiliser and amendments will then be added to the profile. Once all this is on the green, watering of greens will commence. Greens will be soft for a period of time and expected recovery will be 2 weeks with full cover and trueness by week 3.

ANNOUCEMENT REGARDING TEMPORARY COURSE

We apologise for any inconvenience during this period. Please review the following links for more information. To view the latest Illustrative Masterplan.
CONSTRUCTION WORKS UPDATE
Rain rain go away. Not the ideal situation for construction as clay stays wet
for days and makes construction impossible as more mess is made than
anything. With over 7 rain days stopping work and the flow on effects,
things are in overdrive to catch up. Also some access issues through the
development for our trucks and supplies have changed some schedule
dates. Bulk earthworks have now been completed on holes 16 and 13.

From Wednesday 4/11/20 we will play a Temporary Course whilst
works begin for the final stages of our Course reconfiguration.
