    It will help briefly, but the BOM are forecasting the same level on rain again on Monday.

    Continual setbacks for the courses to recover. I wonder how long this will continue.

    September I heard. But more likely its Scott Morrisons fault for not getting to net zero 5 years ago, people are dying. Adam will fix this.

    It was in better condition at Oxley today than it was last week, despite last night's rain.

    Was going to have a hit at Hope Island this morning however there was only 12 spots available for members and 256 booked by social groups. Interesting place to be a member as there is a larger proportion of tee time allocation for social groups than members.

    The Brisbane Vets played Parkwood for the first time yesterday. Unfortunately the course was a bog. Carts were on paths only, but a lot of them were flooded as well. Quite a few greens were bare, the grass killed off by acidic soil as the sulphates leached to the top. It was Preferred Lies with optional Tee Up. A lot of the time tee up was the only option. It was a shame as the layout isn't too bad, but you never got to enjoy it other than on the par 3s.

    My course was the worst i have ever seen on Saturday. It was not even close to this during the big wet of 2010/11 when we lost 70% of golfing days in 12 months due to rain. Large areas of bog anywhere there is houses above the fairway. The water in the ground just cant get to the stormwater creeks across the other side of the fairway.


    I have heard some other courses had a push buggy on paths rule - thats a first but i now see why.

    That appeared to be where most of the standing water was coming from at Parkwood as well. The houses are all above the course. And their dams and waterholes were reasonably full but not overflowing. The 30mm they had received since Friday didn't help either.

    Woodford is suprising very playable at present, wet in the low spots and off the fairways, but pretty good really, carts back on with some no go areas marked, preferred lie through the green.

    We had push buggy’s on paths the front 9 at Burleigh a week or two ago. They could have almost closed the course for the day. Was a bog, water laying around & rough long enough to lose balls as was too wet to mow. Not enjoyable.
