The Overview

Yesterday was a great first day of the long weekend. Today is going to be wonderful with a bit more cloud cover coming. The rain should hold off til late in the afternoon – so time to get the early rounds going. Now is the time to be outside – even the health experts are saying this. And there is no safer place to be than on a golf course where separation is key to pace of play.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 6C(FL 5C) in clouds. It will warm to 16C (FL 15C) in the afternoon and then cool to 10C (FL 7C) overnight. Hp[e the neighbours don’t mind the sound of grass growing!
Winds – are out of the East at 13kph to 17kph range today – they are ill winds so we know rain is coming. Tomorrow still out of the East with a bit more punch to them.

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is MODERATE due to the lighter winds today. The warmer temps along with the rain will bring a green flush to the region. It is interesting to watch the progression of the plants from Low to High and back to Low as they pass through the budding stage.

But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside.
