Very disappointing to have to cancel this weeks tournament especially when the course was in such good condition last Friday, which now seems a lifetime ago. The courses have handled the rainfall particularly well and we were mowing debris off the fairways this morning without any worries. The problem we have now is tidal inundation which is rendering both courses unplayable as there are several holes on each course that are un-walkable. See the photos below of a selection of areas just on this mornings high tide.
|1 & 9R fairways from 10R green.|Front 18W tee. 17W from the tee full water carry! 9R tee. 9W fairway dry enough to mow though!?
All the water in the photos above is from tidal inundation. We have received 338mm since it started raining on Saturday. In the same time the airport has received just 236mm.
And this is the seagulls last Saturday morning just after it started raining on 4W dam. Maybe a sign to look out for in future??
