Plan­ning to be best course

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

EIDSVOLD Golf Club is in­vest­ing time and hard­earned money to make their club one of the best cour­ses in the re­gion.

With their mem­ber­ship grow­ing all is look­ing bright for this lit­tle club that calls Eidsvold home.

As with ev­ery ex­panse of land the course is look­ing good after a few inches of rain and Rus­sell Rose, the grounds­man in charge of fair­way and green keep­ing is now mow­ing all the greens twice a week and fair­ways once a week.

“We have just pur­chased a brand new $33,000 dol­lar mower to cut the greens,” Mr Rose said.

“This will give a great boost to the qual­ity of the putting sur­faces and will make my job a lot eas­ier.”

The golf club put their fundrais­ing du­ties in the hands of the Bur­nett In­land Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion and grant an­gel Tamra Kelly was suc­cess­ful with a ma­jor grant from the Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Fund.

“We are so happy with our new mower and the di­rec­tion our club in Eidsvold is go­ing, “club pres­i­dent Terry Haupt said.

“We built the club­house in 1995 and we have not been able to do many other im­prove­ments un­til this year.”

To join the Eidsvold Golf Club call Terry on 4165 0868.
