The redevelopment of the course at the Carbrook Golf Club has been completed after a year of work.

The course in Queensland, Australia, has a history of problems with flooding and local sand mining and the tenth hole at the course was almost destroyed during flooding on Australia Day in 2013.

The decision was made to rebuild the fairway completely rather than just repair the damage. A design committee was formed for the project and featured president Peter Anemaat, shapers Rowan Shipley and Tony Di Tommaso, and Carbrook’s general manager Scott Wagstaff.

The reconstruction and redevelopment of the tenth hole was a combined effort from Andrew Ward of Premium Haulage, a local bulk excavation and haulage contractors, and Carbrook member Hans Jebbink, with support from the Queensland State Government and the Logan City Council.

Local authorities such as the Department of Sport and Recreation at Queensland State Government supported the project thanks to funds from its Flood Recovery Programme.

A reopening ceremony took place last week with over 100 attendees, and the course is now ready for play.
