With the temperature predicted to be well over 33C the club’s Extreme Weather Policy was activated and players assembled at 8.00am for an 8.30am hit-off.  The bowlers were also starting early, 10.30am so their afternoon tea would be from 12.00pm to 12.30pm, early returning golfers had work around this.   The greens were again in good nick holding approach shots and putting very true.  The “Motion Activated” sprinklers have limited serious Corella damage to small areas on some greens but  this is only achievable because greens’ keeper, Steve Wilkins, patrols regularly and repairs damage while it is small.   Initial conditions were generally good for golf but as the round progressed a very strong northerly wind blew up causing problems for both drives and high iron shots.  By the end of the round the temperature had reached 34C and everyone was more than happy to get back to the rooms.  On a hot, windy morning the results were;
