Golfers flocking in to tee off
GOLF: It’s good news for all golfers across the Burnett with significant improvements made to the courses as a result of heavy downpours.
At the Mundubbera golf course players are now flocking into the club and teeing off to the sight of green grass, birds chirping and a positive outlook for the future.
Mundubbera golf course president Graham Carlyon said the course hadn’t been this green for quite a long time.
“You can really see attitudes have changed as well, the more green grass you have, players are very happy,” Carlyon said.
“It’s almost as though players’ outlooks have changed for a positive, people come to the club and say hello and they’re playing much better than before.”
Some of the greens on the courses are still under development.
“We hoped the greens would be ready by now but hopefully in the next couple of weeks they’ll be all good to go,” Carlyon said.
Numbers at the club have increased since last year with more people interested in taking up the sport.
Golfer Robyn Maeyke said due to the course, many players had taken up the game.
“The greens have undergone significant maintenance with holes one, six and eight,” Maeyke said.
Another player, Ian Maskovich, said numbers had been reasonable.
“With the weather cooling down, more people are taking up golf,” Maskovich said.
“People think you have to be rich to play golf, it isn’t true.
“Anyone can play golf, all you need are a set of clubs and a can-do attitude, and you can do it. It’s a pretty addictive game I must say.”
The Sunday golf competition starts at noon in Mundubbera.
