Course finally reopens

THE front nine of the Proserpine Golf Course reopened on Monday after being out of action due to the wet season for most of this year.

The course opening wouldn't have been possible without some community support from a group of people who got in there and helped out.

Darren Williams supplied the equipment and rallied the eight troops who turned up to get their hands dirty at the working bee.

As a team they managed to clean up the first nine holes with some mowing and whipper-snippering so that the course was playable by Monday.

In return for their good work, the golf club put on a sausage sizzle and a couple of well earned beers for the boys.

Proserpine Golf Club Manager Trevor Osborne was very appreciative of the community support.

“They were here for a good five or six hours and did a great job,” he said.

There will be another working bee from 7am-12pm this Saturday with a barbecue straight after - residents are encouraged to come along and help out – call the club on 4945 1337.

Competition is being played on the front nine this weekend.
