Drought Hits Wingham Golf Club


The club is currently experiencing its worst drought in almost 30 years. The fairways are brown and dusty, the greens and tees are being hand-watered with what little dam water we have left, and all players now are being asked to "tee up" through the course or play off mats of artificial turf.

The 3 photos show graphically the impact of the drought on the course. The attached PDF file contains almost 50 additional photos so that the club will have a permanent visual record of the current devastation.

Photos from 5 DECEMBER 2019 have been added as an update. Playing off mats has been compulsory for the past couple of months and has helped to save the course.
