Merbein Golf Club officials are smiling again with the return of their biggest event after a drought-ridden absence.
During the recent, long dry spell, the club was forced to relocate its club jewel, the 36-hole Merbein Open, to the Mildura Golf Resort. But with the condition of the Merbein course constantly improving, the competition will return to its home.
To break even with the money they would have made playing at Mildura, the club needs at least 70 players to sign up for the April 28- 29 event, meaning positions are still open. And officials are promising a course that will be a stern test of a player's ability.
The lush green around the course is a stark contrast to the dusty brown fairways that engulfed the club as little as 18 months ago. This in turn resulted in drastically reduced membership and income for the club.
