Month: September 2019

MGC Closed for Green Renovation Mon 16th – Tue 17th Sept 2019

The final shaping of the six new greens was completed over the weekend by GolfSpectrum, and they look magnificent albeit challenging. They are ready for turfing and the existing 12 greens are scheduled for renovation. The resulting tifdwarf stolons will then be spread onto the new six greens by staff and an army of volunteers.

Sadly this means there is no golf on either Monday 16th or Tuesday 17th of September 2019 however, MGC will open as normal on Wednesday 18th and the course will be ready to play.

Course Update – all earthworks complete for final 6 holes

Work to extend our course to 18 holes is on track for early 2020 as planned. Course Superintendent, Mick McCombe, has worked with the course architect, Graham Papworth, the specialist golf course earth movers, our assistant green keepers and a large number of volunteers to draw all of the components together.
The status of the 6 new holes is:
1. fairways cleared and being mown as required
2. installed over 2 kms of irrigation to all greens and tees
3. completed shaping of the tees, greens, bunkers and the approaches to greens
4. installed drainage in all greens
5. completed one revetted bunker (at the 18th), 6 to go
6. built two rock retaining walls and two concrete paths (thanks Rob and Don for outstanding effort)
7. planted grass on almost all tees
8. prepared greens for planting with grass from renovating existing greens in mid September 2019
In early September, 2019 we will appeal to members for assistance in seeding the greens. Please also contact the club if you can help prepare matting for the revetted bunkers on Monday or Wednesday mornings.
