Greens at prestigious golf course could need repair following chemical mix-up
As many as nine greens at the prestigious Royal Melbourne golf course could need to be ripped out and replaced due to a chemical mix-up.
Andrew alerted 3AW Drive to the news on Monday.
3AW Twilight Zone co-host and former professional golfer, Mark Allen, said it was terrible news.
“Royal Melbourne is a national treasure,” he said.
“The course it happened on is No.5 in the whole world.”
The club has confirmed it has sent soil for testing.
Allen said it hopefully wouldn’t cause long-term issues.
“It looks like they’ll have to peel off all the grass and hopefully they’ll just be able to lay the Sutton’s mix on the green,” he said.
