Club mowing on fire ban day

WE cannot believe that not only was the Wodonga Golf Club mowing the fairways at late on Tuesday morning, with very strong winds gusting, on a day of total fire ban and with fire warnings and appeals for all outside activities involving machinery to be restricted, but that they intend to continue with this practice “because they are legally allowed to do so”.

What has happened to common sense?

Surely our golfers would understand the occasional inconvenience of a unmown fairway if the reason is explained to them?
