Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club Weekly Golf Report

1. Recycled Glass product being delivered.


WE were blessed with a week of fine weather, allowing our staff to get on with the formidable job of course flood repairs.

Thanks to Fortade Group Pty Ltd who were able to make an early start on replacing our Golf Cart Paths which were washed away during the flooding.

Our thanks also to Handybin Waste Services Coffs Harbour who have partnered with us in our course recovery program and are supplying us with a substantial amount of Recycled Glass Product to be used as a base for some of the bunkers that are undergoing a “makeover”.

We expect our normal bunker sand will be delivered next week.

Fingers crossed for continuing fine weather, and it’s full steam ahead for our Course Flood Recovery program.
