Yesterday the New Zealand Government announced that they will be allowing minimal essential maintenance to be undertaken on golf courses, so Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club has been saved.
Greenskeepers will soon be out cutting the grass on the greens and fairways, and the course will be in its usual top class condition when we finally get the OK to start playing again.
The Government announced that they will be allowing minimal essential maintenance to be undertaken on golf courses, with Sports and Recreation Minister Grant Robertson saying;
“The implications if the maintenance does not occur regularly, including for community organisations, which is why we have moved quickly on these decisions”.
“The Government has agreed that urgent upkeep and maintenance of biological assets will be able to go ahead after the Easter Weekend.”
“This includes non-plantation nurseries, stadia turf, and golf and bowling club turf maintenance.”
