210mm of rain since Saturday on top of the 190mm last week end certainly has us wet. With the rain that fell upstream making its way down today we were lucky to get a lot of water off the courses before the high tide around midday. That has now stopped and the flow of water off the courses has certainly slowed with the huge volume of water coming down the
. The river went awfully close to breaking its banks at high tide but we thankfully avoided that. The ground is absolutely saturated as can be seen in the photo of the 1st west fairway still holding water late this afternoon which is very rare. Tweed River

Remarkably in the wind we lost only one tree and a few limbs but quite a lot of small leaf debris is evident on both courses. I would like to think that the lack of limbs down is a testament to the tree pruning and removal program that we operate.
