Merritt Golf & Country Club to close to help course recover from flood damage.
Head professional Sydney Van Rensburg says they will be closed the rest of the month starting Sunday.
"We came to a decision between the club and contractors that is fixing it, that the best course of action is to close the course for a couple weeks starting July 15th to the 31st. It will give the course the best possible chance to grow back, and the new sod to take."
Fairways on hole eight, nine and six, and a few other places on the course are completely being resodded.
"Its been a lengthy process, but we are lucky enough to have a very experienced contractor that's doing the work. They are doing great work and are working non-stop."
Including the latest work, over $750,000 in damage has resulted from flooding the last two years at the Merritt Golf and Country Club.
