Rain Event June 4th / 5th 2016
To all Members the purpose of this report is to give you all a brief update on the state of the course after the “Rain Event” over the weekend.
In general the course fared well except for the dam wall on the 15th hole. All dams are full, greens appear untouched. There was some debris around the course which the course staff cleaned up on the Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th June
Dam Wall 15th Hole
There was significant damage to the dam wall on the 15th hole when the dam overflowed and started eroding the wall on the creek side of the dam. Below are a series of photos showing the damag
Looking from creek back to dam wall
Top of 15th path
• Pipe extensions washed out of dam.
• Wall thickness reduced by half.
• Water leak in the dam wall approx. 1 metre below the pipes
As can be seen above; the dam wall is very fragile due to erosion of the wall. Council was contacted as to the condition of the dam wall. We have begun to drain the dam using our irrigation system and hoses to reduce the potential for the wall to fail.
Fire brigade and the SES inspected the dam wall and said there was nothing they could do at the moment that was any quicker than what the Club was doing. A council inspector visited today 7th June to inspect the area.
The board is in consultation with the Council as to the next steps. The immediate action was to relieve the stresses on the dam wall.
Playing the 15th hole
Until further notice no one is permitted to walk or drive along the dam wall. All Traffic from tee to green is via the 10th hole alongside the edge of the dam wall. A review of how this will effect play on the 10th and 15th holes will be reviewed by the Match committee and the board.
Remediation of the dam wall
The board will begin a process of engagement with our insurer and the council as to how the dam wall will be repaired for the long term and who is responsible.
The board will provide updates as progress is made with the appropriate people.

Competition Policy - Visiting Golf Players
The club’s policy on visitors playing in our comps does not target any club. All that is required is that a visitor play at least 5 of their last 20 games listed on Golf Link at their home club.
Any visitor who does not comply is still welcome to join a competition field and play golf at Antill Park and he/she will be handicapped through GolfLink, but is not eligible to win any prizes. They will not be classed as Disqualified.
The logic behind the policy is that any person who joins a regional club to avoid paying higher annual fees at a local club, should not expect to enjoy all of the benefits of members of the local club who pay for the facilities used by the visitor. Genuine members of other clubs should not be affected when visiting Antill Park and, of course, social golfers are unaffected by the policy and are welcome as always.
If all clubs implemented a similar policy to that of Antill Park, it may help arrest our declining memberships and consequent loss of essential revenue. In the meantime however we are prepared to act on a matter of principle in the hope that it will be adopted by others and be for the eventual betterment of golf club members everywhere.
