And just like that it was August. July 2019 did finish up being the warmest on record although the southerly breezes this week certainly cooled things down. A very busy week of golf on the courses meant quite a bit of shed time was spent painting, cleaning and servicing machinery. We did start a program of tree trimming which consists of clearing low hanging branches and the removal of a lot of suckers and small trees growing in and on other trees.
We also had to replace the floodgate at RHS 1R, part of which was only replaced 6 months ago. Unfortunately the best material to construct it from is aluminium to prevent rust and so it was stolen to obviously be cashed in. They were certainly well prepared as the top grate was actually bolted down and the bolts sheared off to try and prevent the theft. The replacement will need a crane to move it so hopefully it will stay in place.
The forecast included some rain this week which wasn't quite right although further south Byron Bay certainly got their share. It did start to rain a little this morning and I snapped this beautiful rainbow over Banora Point from 18W green. One of the joys of having a golf course for your office.
