We often think of Parliament House and politicians. Whilst there may not be many golf courses in Canberra, there are certainly some good ones and Federal Golf Club is one of those!  Pete Dunn is Director of Agronomy & Facilities at Federal Golf Club. Growing up in Canberra and getting into greenkeeping from a very young age afforded Pete the opportunity to get two trades under his belt.  Pete is well equipped with the knowledge and skills to take Federal to the next level. During his career Pete has worked at a number of golf courses throughout Canberra taking in all of what works best before getting the opportunity to lead the team at Federal Golf Club.   Located at Red Hill Nature Reserve, which is basically within Canberra's city limits, Federal is a golf course that gets plenty of camera work from not only golfers but also tourists and diplomats alike. A very Australian setting is the backdrop of Federal and also what keeps the peace from the all encompassing National capital and its suburbs. Join Pete and I as we chat about his greenkeeping career and dive into the details of what makes Federal Golf Club different from other golf courses in Canberra.
