Trouble At St. Andrews Beach Australia. Martin Blake reports the unfortunate news that the course closed temporarily because it's not paying its bills. You have to love Clayton's quote:

One source said the course's co-designer, US golf course architect Tom Doak, was owed at least $250,000.

Mike Clayton, Melbourne golf professional, course architect and Age columnist, was the other designer. Mr Clayton said he was disappointed to see the concept struggling. "It's clearly one of the best courses in the country and it needs to work," he said. "We can't afford to lose great courses. We've got too many bad courses around without losing something like this."
