Check out these flooded golf courses on Australia’s east coast

After the huge downpour of rain that hit Australia’s east coast in the last week, golf courses are among some of the community spaces currently mopping up.

The weather system that brought torrential rains and drenched large parts of New South Wales and Queensland over the weekend, saw some places receive more than 200mm of rain.

The rain has largely brought a smile to most faces with dams and reservoirs now back up to near capacity, grass now growing for livestock and in the case of golf courses, fairways and greens now springing back to life without relying on irrigation systems.

But on several golf courses, especially the low lying ones, the rains led to overflowing dams and river systems which has seen fairways disappear below the water.

Check out these photos. Such as the first hole on the Bungool course at Riverside Oaks… that’s a raised green out there.
