“YOU couldn’t expect to putt on better greens anywhere in the world.”
That’s just some of the positive feedback PGA southern division tournament co-ordinator Cameron Davies has been receiving from some of Australia’s professionals about the state of the Commercial Albury golf course over the past two days.
Some of Australia’s very best golfers converged on the Border this week to play in yesterday’s Commercial Club Albury Pro-Am and Davies said the players had liked what they saw.
“The condition of the course has been sensational,” Davies said.
“We’ve had a perfect couple of days.
“Some of the guys have said you couldn’t expect to putt on better greens anywhere in the world.
“They’re really impressed with the course.
“It’s been a bit warm, some of the guys have struggled with that, but the level of golf has matched the level of the conditions.
“The event ran really smoothly.”
Melbourne-based professional Craig Scott, who finished second with a stellar score of six-under (64), agreed with Davies.
“It’s a great course,” Scott said.
“I’d never played here before.
“It’s a hidden little secret.
“The condition of it is unbelievable.
“I’m used to playing in good conditions and this is right up there.”
But it wasn’t just Australia’s professionals enjoying the course with Ted Whitten jnr and new North Albury coach Jason Akermanis having a hit.
