Trentham Tournament deferred
The annual Trentham Tournament that was to have been held from October 19-24 has been deferred to a date in late November or early December (yet to be determined).
In reviewing the tournament, it was clear that holding it in October was highly problematic, and it was better to defer to a time in keeping with the new Victorian Government Covid-19 roadmap, and after the significant 80% double-vaccinated trigger point is likely to be achieved (projected by November 6).
We will keep you posted on the new date. A number of factors will determine this, including avoiding clashes with tournaments at other District clubs and our proposed greens coring schedule. We hope we can bring forward greens coring to some time in October to give them a good chance of recovery by the time the revised tournament is able to be held.
Course clean up to start
Work to clean up Trentham Golf Course commenced on Monday, September 20.
Bushfire Recovery Victoria contractors will be cleaning up the whole course over a period of 4-6 weeks. All stumps will be removed or ground out, log-piles removed, and other branch piles mulched on site. BRV contractors have guaranteed to rehabilitate damaged areas of the course as a result of the work. Access to most areas of the course will be through the back gate on the main road, with traffic controls in place. Some access to the southern end of the course will be through the club's normal entrance.
Trentham Golf Course committee members met staff from the Johns Lyng Group (contractors to Bushfire Recovery Victoria) to discuss the course clean-up, means of access, and routes across the course for machinery and trucks while at the same time minimising damage.

The good news is that the course will not be totally closed during the clean-up. Some holes may be closed temporarily. There may also be some holes shortened by the use of temporary tees to separate golfers from work areas.
BRV anticipates completing the work around the end of October. Green fee players should be aware that there will be some disruptions and hole changes during the works. However, this is a great result for the club as it not only achieves complete clean-up of the course, but significantly reduces the club's own financial costs.
