Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club

Fortade Group Pty Ltd completion of Golf Cart Paths.


WEEKLY golf report for the week ending 29 May 2021.

We have been blessed with great Autumn weather this past week – great weather for playing golf and allowing our greens staff to “make hay while the sun shines”.

Golfers will have noticed that much of the mud from the flooding has been removed or re-positioned for landscaping purposes, and work on some bunker refurbishments is also underway.

A big thanks to Fortade Group Pty Ltd on completion of the replacement of our Golf Cart paths which had been destroyed by the flooding – a great job guys.
