Hundreds give new putt putt course a workout

HUNDREDS of people passed through the Ross Creek Putt Putt course for its open day last weekend.

Owners Fred and Karen Lucken opened up their popular new nine hole putt putt golf course at the Ross Creek Store.

Although the day was free to all participants, the Lucken's were asking for a coin donation, with the proceeds going to Kia Ora State School.

Mr Lucken, who has an eight-year old son, said he knew what is was like trying to find somewhere for children to have a bit of holiday fun, if they didn't want to travel to the Sunshine or Cooloola coasts.

"After all, what else am I going to do with his land?"

The couple have plans to expand the course.
