Volunteers 2021

Thanks to all our volunteers again for 2021 led by Peter Evans. Pictured above enjoying their last lunch for the year.

Melbourne Water- Sewer project

Melbourne Water aim to complete some sewer works from the 14th hole bridge along the river to the 8th tee and beyond. Initial works have progressed and a tender process is complete.

We are in the process of negotiating access with Melbourne Water during the project and determining the level of impact on the course and club business.

At this stage the project will commence onsite in March 2022 and go for 18 months.

We expect the 8th tee and hole to be out of action for some time.

Melbourne Water have agreed to fund a new tee for the cipper with artificial grass to enable it to hande high usage.

They also will fund the construction of a target green on the practice fairway to enable us to have spare hole if needed whilst the chipper is in use.

The bike track will be constructed at the end of the sewer project by Melbourne Water as well as an improved riverbank not on Medway property.

The Board are considering some design options for the 8th hole for re-instatement at the end of the project with TP golf. As soon as they are complete they will be posted for members views.

5th/ 18th Greenside Bunkers and surrounds – design phase

The Board have engaged TP Golf Course Design (Ross Perret) to provide a concept and detailed design of the area. Once received and displayed to members the Club will engage tenderers to estimate costings.

At this stage the area is a priority and with acceptable business conditions the club hopes to at least do part of the improvements in the Summer of 2022-23 to minimize further disruption to member golf access due to recent lockdowns.
