The wet summer exacted a toll on Bushwillow and it has not yet recovered, notably the third and fourth holes. The greens have sand on them, frustrating when playing in the morning as the wet ball picks this sand up. And some putts jag offline after hitting tiny pebbles. Some fairways have helpfully been widened to improve playability, particularly No 14. Being the shorter of the two courses at Randpark, Bushwillow rewards straight and long drives but punishes wild tee shots. The bunkers are generally good even with soft fluffy sand. Thankfully the leaves on and off the fairways, which made it hard to find a golf ball, are no longer as troublesome as they were in autumn and early winter. Losing a ball in that manner was a common annoyance. Hopefully next summer will restore the Bushwillow to its proper level of quality.
