Golf News

Golf Operations regret to inform our members that the Durban country club golf course will be closed until Monday the 16th October. We have had extensive flooding on the course and before we can begin the clean up process we will be pumping water from five of the holes that are affected. Our maintenance crew is working around the clock to restore DCC to its appropriate condition. We are treating this with the utmost urgency.

The Beachwood course has also suffered flood damage but is recovering well and we expect play to resume in full on Friday the 13th. We have a full field expected on Saturday morning and afternoon so we are working very hard to prepare the course.

We have suffered heavy damage to a number of bunkers on both courses so we ask our members to be patient with maintenance crews as we get on with the repair work.

The Beachwood greens are doing well following the hollow tining, we are hopeful to have a top quality putting surface by months end. We wish you a happy golfing weekend ahead.

Regards
Don
