Well it has certainly been a dry summer but when I discovered that it was actually the driest summer season on record for the Tweed Heads site I was amazed.  There was only a couple of falls above 10mm but rain was recorded on 29 of the 90 days which is why I was so surprised.  It was however a nice change from the last two years when we received 1005mm and 891 mm respectively but was just a little bit too much of one extreme to the other.  The dry conditions don't allow the grass to grow in the rough though, particularly the broadleaf Carpetgrass that normally "swallows" the ball so there have been fewer lost balls which means happier players!!.

It must have been a hot week with a Goanna sighted out and about on 6 river earlier this week.  A pity he couldn't have chased our friends in the buggy away!
