Golf course isn't improving

GOLF: Players on the Mundubbera golf course may soon have to revert back to using a tee when playing on the fairway in an effort to improve the course.

Golfers are teeing off with dust flying everywhere, prompting calls that it could be time to protect the grass. It was only in June that using a tee on the fairway was ruled out as the course was on the mend, but circumstances have changed.

Golfer Paul Carlyon said the tee would be a better alternative.

"I think we'll have to if it doesn't get better,” he said.

"The course has suffered a lot and we really need this rain to come here.”

Carlyon said a meeting would be conducted this month to resolve the issue.

Not only that, the course has seen a reduction in members these past few weeks, prompting concerns from the club.

"I would love to see more players at the course, we have veterans on Tuesday afternoon starting at 3pm, Thursday is socials starting at 3pm and Sunday is competition at 12pm,” Carlyon said.
