Rifle grenade practice range
WWII - The training ground for rifle grenades - Piat Bomb
29/7/1991 The rifle grenade range was searched and cleared (90%) of WWII ordinance.
On Fairway 8 a" 'Piat bomb' fuzetip was found plus 18 x base plates from rifle grenades.
It is estimated that 2 X cases of grenades were launched from this location.
The fairway forms the coverage over the hand grenade practice area.
The camping area
The camping area consists of six (6) powered sites with town water connection
Each site has a 6 m X 3 m concrete slab for the annexe.
An area on each site is provided for a tow vehicle to be parked.
There are unpowered site available with access to toilets and shower.
The log lounge at the 9th Tee
The 'Log Lounge' was built to replace a 'weathered' seat provided for golfers waiting on the Tee for others to move out of range before starting their Tee shot.
During a cleanup of the area which involved the felling of dead trees to remove risks of injury to golfers and workers alike, the concept of forming a 'rustic' seat to replace the aged seating, was formed. The 'lounge' consists of a tree stump modified to support one end of the 'lounge' whilst another cut section is used to form the support for the other end.
We consider this a true recycling of natural products.
Posing for the tee shot
Kangaroos are common on the course with often small mobs of 15 to 30 'roos present to witness a golf shot.
Occasionally we get the opportunity to capture a candid image. This image needs very little imagination to caption it.

Life on the dam
The dams form a welcome and safe place to raise chicks. These Black ducks visit each year and raise their clutches of chicks on the dams and roaming the golf course areas.
