    So in a moment of what some might call madness, 56 hardened golfers ventured out in 43 degrees weather yesterday to play in a golf day sponsored by one of the golf clubs main supporters…….
    As can be seen from the drone that was up yesterday the course is as dry as the proverbial….
    Somehow me off 17 and my partner for the day off 25 managed to have 76 off the stick and ended up as runners up, we were lucky to end up in areas were you could take advantage of a preferred lie and combined well on the day…..

    The golf course looks like that…… just stop and think what the surrounding farms look like….. it is horrendous

    I really feel for those who have been smashed by the fires and what we all need is a couple of days of gentle soaking rain so if you can arrange it Santa it would be greatly appreciated …..

    And for those who have been lucky enough to have had rain and have a lush green backyard, not here I haven’t been able to use a hose for two years, and are wondering what they can do for a weekend…… take a trip to the bush and see how bad it is, talk to the locals, spend a couple of dollars it would be appreciated by all…..

    Very dry.

    What’s it costing to keep the greens … green? Must be buying in water?

    By the time you realise this part of my signature doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

    Success is the ability to go from one failure to the next without any loss of enthusiasm.

    Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    Meditation makes doing nothing quite respectable.

    We have a bore and we can still pump some water from our waterhole in river…….
    It is getting really desperate though

    I’m quoting to acknowledge because hitting ‘like’ just doesn’t feel right.

    As long as it comes as consistent light rain and not a torrential downpour. If there is any decent topsoil left that hasn’t been blown away, would be a shame to see it all washed away.

    Not enough, but at least it was something

    That would have been soaked up real quick and probably won’t do much at all, but better than nothing I suppose. Shame you can’t/won’t get any of the run off from Qld.

    9th-green

    So it can rain a bit
    This is looking from 9th green
    There are patches of green on fairway and after torrential thunderstorm some water as well

    Will be interesting to see what it looks like in a couple of weeks
