3rd at The Dunes 

7th 13th Beach Beach Course 

12th Southern 

16th Moonah Links Legends

11th St John's

Micky you need to get out and play afew more courses if you consider the 12th at Southern is a good par 3 !

It's a Shearer design I believe, club members should never be allowed to have a say in re-designing holes at their own home course.

I do see both sides to this argument however I am certain that the number of times a member based decision would have been better than that of the professionals' is far and away outnumbered 

 

if the stronger push is from the older, less skilled members who may not understand course architecture  the outcomes will not be at all propitious for the club.

Conversely, if the push had come from the younger, higher skilled golfers I am certain that a better understanding of a holistic outcome would be reached.

It was a poor attempt at a pess take Jon. I thought it was funny when I played there that the A Graders in the group all struggled on it.

do you have some examples too?

I can think of a couple of times where some holes have been pushed for change by some of the older members to the detriment of the course in order to make it easy for them

What about that putrid effort (16?) At Keysey.
The green was redone by a member, and it is rubbish

Think you've got the holes mixed up Rob, the 16th is a standout green complex with great risk reward for a short par 5.

The 7th green however is the clubs third attempt over the past 33 years to improve it, since the original green was deemed an OH&S problem re the ladies 8th tee and moved to it's current position in the middle 80's. It was moved approximately 40 metres left and pushed further back to bring the lake into play as a backdrop. The current incarnation is the worst of the three attempts so far !

Unfortunately PF, the designer of the 12th hole and several others at Southern is both a club member and a GCA. So maybe what the club should do is have an independent propose course changes that all members can debate and then agree on !

He's also an Australian Open winner and has won on the PGA tour, so it definitely doesn't have anything to do with his age or ability. 

The biggest issue club members have with the 12th is the bunkering at the front right which doesn't allow them to run the ball up on to the green. There was talk about removing one of the bunkers there, but it hasn't happened and I don't think it would.

It's definitely my favourite par 3 at Southern and I'd take the 12th green over the 6th green every day of the week.

It sure is. Rumour has it they designed the tiers to be 1 foot each but the builders made them 1metre each.

I must be too young too, but I think it must have something to do with Fonzie jumping a shark

Do yourself a favour and download Spinal Tap.
