March Course Condition Report

We have survived our busy period with the November coring, annual tournament and busy Christmas holidays now gone.

The greens have responded well to our recent November renovation and are currently in excellent condition.

We have had a cooler than expected start to summer. Recent humid conditions has promoted growth and kept the mowers busy. A growth regulator has been sprayed to help control excessive top growth.

Fairways are in excellent condition and a big thank you must go to Al Sperling for his continued help cutting fairways. Without his help the fairways would not be presented at such a high standard every week. Thanks Al.  Fairways are yet to be irrigated.

The big pump seal, suction line and non-return check valves have now all been replaced or fixed. Finally the irrigation system is back working with some reliability.  Thank you to all involved.

It is very disappointing to see the way the bunkers have been left after play over the last 2 months. So much time and effort has gone into the bunker project to improve their conditions. Bunkers have been left not raked, foot marks left, players walking up faces, rakes left out of bunkers. If players expect a decent fair lie when they enter a bunker, they must remember to leave it in the condition that they would like it. We must improve the way we look after them.  Please remember to smooth sides with the back of the rake to allow them to firm up to allow ball to roll into the middle. Rakes are to be placed in the middle of the bunkers

Planned works & maintenance for March

The greens will be cored on Wednesday 4th March.  Whilst this makes the greens unfriendly for a few weeks, it is essential in ensuring their health and quality over the busy summer period.  Thank you for your patience over this time.

Other maintenance will be as per normal with regular mowing & rolling.

Thanks & Regards

Dylan McMeekin

I would like to say a big thank-you for running the Trainee Pro-Am. I keep mentioning to the Huntingdale members that Leongatha is a hidden gem! I would like to say a big thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and members. I spoke to most of the Trainees and they all loved the course and said the greens were the toughest they have played!

Thank you very much for having us at the Leongatha GC Trainee Pro-Am. It was a fantastic event thanks to your amazing staff & volunteers. The golf course was in fantastic condition, challenging and most of all a joy to play.

Welcome to the Leongatha Golf Club

LeongathaWeb_coin100-BEST-COURSES2015 Golf Club is a classic Vern Morcom design that has been a hidden treasure in Victoria’s South Gippsland region for far too long.  It is a scenic layout that covers terrain from hilly to gently rolling with wide santa-ana couch fairways flanked by natural bushland.  The greens are also a surprise for a visiting golfer.  They are beautifully maintained and feature subtle contouring.

“When this Vern Morcom design first cracked a spot in our Top-100 in 2013, the secret was out and it could no longer be considered a hidden treasure of Victoria’s Gippsland.”
