If you have been down to the club recently you may have noticed some strange indentations in the No. 2 green. The marks in the green have been made by a deer. Initially it was unclear how the deer got onto the property but after finding more hoof prints on the No. 1 green, a good investigation found the likely access point near the corner closest to Kurth Cres.
We believe that at least one deer comes down from the hills at the top of Pioneer Grove, Sorrento Way and Sylvan Way, probably to drink water from where it pools on the greens.
Don and Ian have blocked the hole in the fence in the bush behind the petanque pistes in the hope that it will deter further visits - the situation will continue to be monitored.
The photo is of a deer that someone in Pioneer Grove took in their garden in March of this year.
