 8 mm of rain yesterday afternoon wasn’t really what we needed after a good day of sunshine helping dry the place out. 

We got the solid tine aeration done on the River greens and had an excellent result with a dethatch on the West greens. You can see the photo below all the dust coming out of 16 W which is exactly what we want to try and pull all the silt out of the greens.

Plenty of dust and debris out of 16W green.

17W ladies tee high tide line.

A lot of the fairways look dry but when you walk or drive on them the squelch of the water is evident.  It's going to take some time for some of these areas to dry out.  Just walking on these areas brings the water to the surface.  The river level has hardly dropped below the level of 1 and 9 River fairways so the surface water still remaining on them has nowhere to go.

Still sodden.

And a couple of photos below from other clubs.  Carbrook GC on top and Indooroopilly's shed below.  I descibed our situation as ''carnage'' but when you look at these shots it puts it into perspective.  Not to mention those who have lost houses.

Carbrook GC.

Indooroopilly's maintenance shed.


We will be okay for a 7 hole comp today on holes 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17 and 18 River.  Carts are ok on these holes but please don’t drive elsewhere.
