    This is a couple of pics from the Bungool course after the flooding. Those that know the course will know how bad this is. The only greens to not be under the water I believe were the 7th and 17th.

    The third picture is taken from the grass next to the first tee where they would hold wedding ceremonies looking across to the 5th and 3rd fairways and the 2nd green would be somewhere there too I think.

    It totally sucks what happened out there. As stealth was saying, it was a great place to go to play. Very often would have a golf course to yourself late in the day and it was such a great course (Bungool). Membership was great value and the club was doing well but the floods and the new GM completely ****ed the place up so unless something drastic changes, I don't think I'll be heading out there and I wouldn't be holding my breath for the owner to be spending any money out there anytime soon from what I've been told.

    I'm surprised they would even continue insuring the course after the front half of the course flooded last year.
