Day 4 is here already and the time seems to have flown. At this stage I haven't heard any negatives about the course which is a good sign and very pleasing with the amount of effort put in by the crew.
The threat of gusty winds meant that the greens were only mown this morning and not rolled to restrict the speed, hopefully preventing balls moving if the wind did get up. The greens are running at just under ten and a half feet.
Greenway Turf Solutions who are one of our suppliers has been providing breakfast for the crew each day since the Pro am on Wednesday. They do this at most major tournaments around Australia and on Wednesday I asked them how many they cooked for at January's Australian PGA and the answer was 40 and at the 2019 Presidents Cup the answer was 100+. So cooking for the thirteen of us was a walk in the park!! I then commended the crew on the job they have done and the quality course that they have produced, particularly considering the two floods.
To think this was 18W tee eight weeks ago.

Day 4 pin placements below and I will do a pin sheet for tomorrows Members competition who are playing the same course.
I will be on leave for a while so the Blog will be taking a break until June. Hopefully the weather starts to dry up sooner than later.
