LAKESIDE GOLF COURSE UPDATE - OCTOBER

Safety is always our top priority. In line with the health advice from NSW Government, from 11th October 2021, only fully vaccinated members, visitors and staff are permitted into Wests Group Macarthur venues, including the use of Lakeside Golf Course.

 

Proof of Vaccination will be required prior to entry to the club house and before playing golf, so please ensure you have downloaded your Vaccination Certificate to your phone prior to arrival or have a printed copy on hand to show staff.

 

A few changes:

Commencing week of the 11th October, Time Sheets for competitions will open 8 days prior to the competition day at 3pm for the Men and 4pm for the Ladies, in lieu of the current 15 days. Eg: Competition Tuesday 12/10 timesheet will open at 3pm on Monday 4/10 etc.

Groups of 4 fully vaccinated players will be permitted.
Once the Public Health Order is updated, we will provide further information as required.

At this point in time flags are to remain and no rakes in bunkers.

 

Event update:

• Junior Club Championships – Postponed. Date to be determined.

• Men’s Club Championships –are in November but postponed one week commencing Saturday 13th November. Due to restrictions on numbers in the Clubhouse, this year, there will be no Draw for times. Members will simply book in when the time sheet opens on the 5th November (8 days before the round). Your time in the field will be maintained during the 4 rounds, with adjustments made for the seeded players for the 3rd and 4th rounds.

• Ladies Club Championships –will commence on Saturday 23rd October, (if health orders go ahead as planned for 11th October).

SPRING CORING

 

With recent health announcements and a reduced staff roster, greens renovations this spring will need to be conducted over an extra day. They will commence on the Monday 30th August and continue on Wednesday 1st September and Thursday 2nd September. The course will be closed for these days so we can get them done as quickly as possible.

 

Note: that the course will be open for competition play on Tuesday 31/8.

 

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. The maintenance staff apologise in advance for any inconvenience, but this is an essential bi annually practice for the greens.

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.
