Signature hole on ninth

THE Gladstone Golf Club course is undergoing changes with some bunkers being re-shaped and new drainage installed.

A new water feature is also under construction which is going in the middle of the ninth fairway to create a hole which will definitely be the signature hole of the Gladstone Golf Club.

Players will have to decide whether to lay up short of the water or go with your driver by trying to clear 220 metres. The bunkers are being re-shaped to create better drainage and lower maintenance in the future.

All juniors who play either 9 holes, 13 holes or 18 holes should be aware that on Saturday we have the 2010 Pump Challenge.

Play starts at 2.30pm and the field is limited to the first 40 players to register. To reserve your spot call the pro shop on 4978 2649. Only 12 spots remain so book quickly. The cost is only $10 per person.
