The Tweed Coast Open has been abandoned after torrential rain and gale-force winds over the last 48 hours rendered the course unplayable.
Officials inspected the course this morning. With bunkers out of play, tree limbs down, and several holes at risk of inundation during high tides over the next two days, officials were faced with no option but to call the event off.
In addition, with the Bureau of Meteorology issuing a severe weather warning for damaging winds, heavy rainfall and abnormally high tides in the Northern Rivers district for the remainder of the day and into the evening, as well as a flood watch on the Tweed River, conditions aren’t likely to improve.
A decision on rescheduled dates for the event will be made in the near future.
