Planning to be best course
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.
