I too know very little. The course is off Golf Links Rd in South Frankston, about a 7-8 minute drive from Peninsula. I've heard the following but not sure how much is true, and how much has been made up by people that claim they know what's going on there:-
Membership is very elite and most on the committee are elderly. They have a committee rule that you are not allowed on the committee unless you are under 70, however, there is a clause that if you are over 70 you can be sponsored onto the committee by another committeeman. So they all sponsor each other and the clique and rules remain.
Membership is anywhere between $400 a year and total cost of running the place for the year divided by however many members there are. That could get pretty exxy but not if your a millionaire.
I know many people in the Frankston area that didn't even know the course was there. Some even live within a kilometre. There is no golf sign out the front and the scorecard is very minimal.
The clubhouse is a weatherboard house with a verandah surrounding the front. Views of Melbourne from the verandah and the 1st tee.
reminds me of The Stonecutters!!! good work mate, i had no idea
there was a course there.
