RENOVATIONS

An update on the renovations and changes. I haven’t been out on the course yet, will have to do that some time and see what changes are happening out there. The greens are all striking well, so that’s good news. The blocks have come off …the island, and the big machines are in to get rid of it. A retainer wall has been constructed on the driving range from the blocks. A few trees have been cleared to open up the first tee, to make it a lot safer now when teeing off, as you have a very clear view if anyone is down the fairway. The ladies tee has been moved back as well. The club house is all done and painted. Thanks to Russell English, and JB Painting, it looks fantastic. Carpet One is now installing the flooring. I would like thank everyone once again for your patience with all this work going on, but it will be all for the best once it is completed.

SCANNING YOUR CARD AFTER A COMP.

This is some information regarding your handicap from One Golf, if you register for a competition, and decide not to scan your card, or forget to scan your card. A “No Score  not Approved” is what is recorded on your handicap record if your card is not scanned
Provisional H’cap status Notice:
By default, if a golfer has five or more “no score not approved” entries in their last 20 rounds, their h’c…ap status will be now set as Provisional by GolfLink. This can not be amended within the MiClub system. We will show a red “P” in the players booking cell on the admin tee sheet to identify them. Members will not see this on their tee sheets.
This will mean by default in the MiClub comp mgmt system that we won’t rank the player in the competition leaderboard so that they are not eligible to win a prize though The players score entered will still be loaded for handicapping purposes automatically.
It is a decision of the club that they can overturn this and allow provisional players to be ranked and therefore eligible to win prizes. If this is so; please advise MiClub and we’ll change a property to allow for this. email support@miclub.com.au
Additional info (MiClub have decided that any special prizes will still be applied to Provisional players such as a Hole IN One or Eagle.) If this is not wanted, you can manually remove the special prize for the provisional player from the prize allocation area.So think twice before you decide not to scan your card for whatever reason. You could lose your competition rights.

THE GREENS.

The temporary greens are now all completed, and  in play.   All the greens have now been planet with the new Tif Eagle and are coming along well.  A huge thank you to all the volunteers that come to help spread the scarifying’s onto the greens.

============================================================================

As everyone is aware, we have had a major problem with our greens this year.  The greens have been affected by an E.R.I  Fungus.  This root fungus is not normally found north of Coffs Harbour, and once the greens are affected it  is very difficult and expensive to treat.

After a lot of research, we have decided to change the greens to a new variety of grass called Tifeagle.  The current grass on the greens, Bemuda tifgreen 328, has past its use by date and has little resistance to disease when mown under 5mm.

The process to change the greens to Tifeagle :

1.      We are going to build alternate greens on all the holes, using greenslees park.  Number 1 & number 5 are already completed.

2.     Prepare the current greens for planting.  This will be done straight after our open in September.

3.     Ross and Jason will drive down to Caboolture, and collect the stolens on Sunday 20th October and be back on the 21st and the new surface will be planted on that day.

We will be asking for around 10 volenteers here that morning so that we can get the grass spread on all the greens as soon as possible.

We ask for your patience and understanding through the next few months while all of the work takes place.  We have researched this grass, and it is the best way to go in the long term.
