Golf course is open again

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Proser­pine Golf Course re-opened yes­ter­day morn­ing, de­spite re­ceiv­ing an es­ti­mated 180mm of rain on Sun­day.

Late Sun­day af­ter­noon, about 14 holes were un­der wa­ter with the first fair­way look­ing like a lake and the 7th to­tally un­der wa­ter too.

How­ever, the Proser­pine ladies weekly com­pe­ti­tion went ahead as nor­mal yes­ter­day with 10 play­ers tee-ing off from 9am and play­ing the front nine twice.

Club pro­fes­sional Kane Nustel­ing said that with the sun still shin­ing, he hoped the back nine would also be open over the Easter pe­riod.

He was very pleased the front nine opened so quickly af­ter such heavy rain and said that showed the new drainage sys­tem was work­ing well.

The course will be open ev­ery day over Easter, in­clud­ing Good Fri­day.
