Proserpine golf reopens 18 holes

IT'S been a long road back for the Proserpine Golf Club since Cyclone Debbie but things are getting back to normal as they open the full 18 hole golf course for the first time today.

Hit hard by the cyclone with trees down and flooding across the course and clubhouse, the past two weeks have seen only the front nine available to play but as of Thursday morning, the full course is up and running.

"It's fantastic to have it up and running again," Proserpine PGA pro Kane Nusteling said.

"Its great for the club and great for the community.

"People can phone and book and we'll get them a game."

While the clubhouse will still take some time before being fully repaired, a temporary pro shop has been opened upstairs.

A number of the club's golf karts were also damaged during the cyclone but they still have 10 available for hire.

"Everything is back to normal as far as the golf course is concerned," Nusteling said.

"The pro shop will be totally revamped and it will become a new pro shop.

"There's a fair bit of work to be done but we will have it back to where it was."

Bookings are now open for the full 18 hole course. Contact Proserpine Golf Club on 4945 1337.
