PART of the Camden Haven Golf Club’s million dollar renovation work was washed away in last week’s torrential rain.
As the course is located in a valley, drainage at the club has been a concern for many years and in the last few weeks the Club has spent around $75,000 installing massive pipes, 550 metres of ag drains and is currently detailing 230 metres of future cart paths to ensure golfers can hit the fairways soon after bad weather.
However, mother nature is not a force to be controlled. The sheer volume of water washed away turf before it had the chance to take root and lifted the drains from the ground.
“The course was in awesome condition leading up to last weekend’s come-and-try day and for the upcoming $3,000 Challenge Weekend,” secretary manager Robert Dwyer said.
The free “come and play day” was rescheduled for Sunday the 20th May.
