Club’s back on course

Ocean Grove Golf Club unveiled its new course recently.

Ocean Grove Golf Club has unveiled its new course.
For around 30 years, the course was 12 holes, but the new course is nine holes.
President Peter Cullen said the club faced some backlash from members at reducing the number of holes on the course, but the end result was worth it.
“We had a problem with balls going over the road on the Wallington Road side,” he said.
“We faced some bumps along the way with some members opposing it, but in the end we’ve finished up with a pretty good golf course.”
Mr Cullen said the course had been improved.
“At the end of the day people who play there will think it’s a nice course,” he said.
“We’ve improved the course with some holes being longer and the majority of members have endorsed it.”
