The Royal Canberra Golf Club is
about to spend an undisclosed
amount of money on the largest
upgrade of its Yarralumla course.
The three-year refurbishment is
expected to future-proof the
grounds and help attract
international championships to the
General manager Andrew Casey
said the National Capital Authority
had approved works to redevelop
the renowned 27-hole course after
a lengthy master plan process.
"If you take into account when
the club moved from Acton to this
site [in 1962] when the original
course was submerged under Lake
Burley Griffin, this will probably
be the largest upgrade to the golf
course since then,'' he said.
Mr Casey described the upgrade
as a rejuvenation of the playing
surface, including the
reconstruction of tees and bunkers,
resurfacing and the installation of
He expected the upgrade to
elevate the course's current
national ranking of 43.
"At the end of the day our golf
course will more or less retain the
Some holes will be shortened,
some holes lengthened, some will
go from par fours to fives.''
Mr Casey hoped that the
refurbishment of the course would
help attract more tournaments.
"It's certainly got the industry
talking due to the significance of
the site, the history of the golf club
and the standard of a course that's
been able to hold international
events like the Women's Australian
Open [last year]," he said.
"It's going to make us a more
attractive site [but] the main
consideration was always
addressing the golf course for the
sake of the members," Mr Casey
The redevelopment will be
rolled out in nine stages to ensure
minimal impact on the club's 1800
members. At least 18
championship holes will be
available during the works; holes
one to nine have already closed in
preparation for stage one.
The club's membership voted in
favour of the final plan about six

Winter turns corner as days begin to warm up
After five powerful cold fronts in
four weeks the worst of winter
could be behind us.
Last week the final cold front
passed through the region for some
time, with meteorologists
predicting clear days, light winds
and warmer maximum
temperatures for the second half of
Weatherzone meteorologist Rob
Sharpe predicted there would be a
gap of couple of weeks between
last week's front and the next
strong cold front for Canberra.
"We are going to have a little bit
of a reprieve,'' he said. "Over the
next couple of weeks winds are
going to be a bit lighter than
they've been in the past three or
He said there might still be a few
cold days where cloud lingers but
they were unlikely to combine with
"We are not going to see a really
cold front with rain and wind for
probably two weeks,'' Mr Sharpe
said. "We've probably seen the
coldest weather for Canberra this
Although there will be respite
from the wet and windy conditions
morning temperatures could dip as
low as minus 4 degrees.
"We will probably also see a few
more cold mornings, particularly if
the sky is clear,'' Mr Sharpe said.
This winter there have already
been five days that haven't
managed to push the mercury into
double digits. There were only two
days all winter in 2013 that
remained below 10 degrees.
