Members’ hard work on greens pays off
Members’ hard work on greens pays off

More than a year of hard work to bring the Halls Creek Golf Club back from disrepair has paid off for members, who can now play a full nine holes at the remote course.

The course has progressed hole by hole as members met on weekends to work on the greens and fairways in between games of three, then five, then seven holes as they progressed.

With the first nine holes of the course complete, the group of between five and 20 players meet at 8am every Sunday for a game.

Committee member David Murray said games at other times could also be arranged by contacting committee members Glen and John from ARAC Air Conditioning, Lee and Noelene at the Halls Creek District High School or David at Kimberley Training Institute.

“It is hoped over time other club members will be able to visit and play and tourists will drop in and play a round, as they drive across the Kimberley,” Murray said.

Working bees for social and full members to complete small tasks such as painting tee markers will be held at 8am every Sunday for the next month.
