A western Sydney golf club is considering a number of options for a neighbouring cemetery to use some of its fairways and greens for future burial plots.
Rookwood Cemetery is predicting it will run out of space in the next two decades. The cemetery has approached Strathfield Golf Club with a proposal to buy the course and then give the club a long-term lease.
Golf club general manager Neil Hardy says it is possible that fairways could be temporarily taken out of action to be used as burial grounds. "That was one of the options that was thrown around," he said.
"We said to them how would it work, because obviously you can't have tombstones and monuments on a fairway."But there are many clubs that have little memorials to members alongside trees and on the rough and things like that.
