With better weather forecast for tomorrow, the final round of the Golf Challenge NSW Open will begin around 10.05 am tomorrow with a two-tee start.
The $400,000 tournament has been reverted to a 54-hole event.
Golf NSW Chief Operating Officer Graeme Phillipson said the course will hopefully be in sufficient shape to complete a third and final round tomorrow.
“It’s disappointing what’s happening but there was too much water on the golf course. It really needs a good day’s drying, and we can make it playable again.”
Phillipson paid tribute to the Concord’s superintendent Chris Howe and his staff for the work already done. “We’ll still have a bit of standing water but there won’t be any issues from a playability perspective. The staff have been working extremely long hours and they’ve done a fantastic job to make the course presentable for the first two days. I’m sure they’ll be doing the same over the next 24 hours to get it ready for Sunday.”
Sydney’s weather should improve, with the weather clearing to a fine Sunday with a maximum of 25 degrees.
