George fires

We would like to thank members for their support and understanding when we closed the course on Monday so staff in affected areas could evacuate their homes. We managed to attend to all the Oubaai employees and with the change of wind and the rain, the fire changed direction and Blanco, Fernridge and Bergville was relatively unharmed.

Having witnessed the ferocious power of fire and wind makes us realise how vulnerable we are on the Garden Route. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost loved ones and homes in the fire.

Until next week,


Dear Members,

With hollow-tining complete and the greens in their final phase of closing, we are focusing on normal maintenance. You may notice some blue dotted lines where we are shaping fairways. We are loosening and raking bunkers to improve the Oubaai bunker experience.

The polgras have been treated on the range and parts of the course. You may notice areas of yellow grass where we sprayed the polgras. We will continue spraying all the polgras with the chemical solution over the next few weeks.

We have treated the tee boxes for poa. Although it looks quite drastic on some tee boxes we expect a quick recovery.

Please stay on the cart paths for as long as possible and respect the areas around the greens. We also appeal to members to fix their pitch marks.

See you on the golf course,


Fasten your seatbelts, these last two months is crammed with golf events.
