Yeah good points Gaz - I really enjoy the track but it is a toughish walk and the end just brains you! I dont really care about the clubhouse etc. As long as the beer is cold and I have a place to park my arse then I am happy. But I can understand a lot of others prefer more than that.
Bernie, I think as a complete golf day out, it struggles to match the other courses in the area for a couple of reasons.
The course layout does not help, as there is no pitstop in between 9â€™s, whereas all the other courses, Moonah, Dunes, etc have a rest stop half way around.
At St.AB, once you leave the clubhouse thatâ€™s pretty much it for the next four or five hours, and the drinks cart is not always out and about. While the guys in the pro shop always do as much as possible to make you feel welcome, it is not the sort of inviting environment where youâ€™re likely to spend any amount of time either pre or post round.
The course itself is great, yet if youâ€™re walking, itâ€™s a long hike up hill and down dale, and in between holes, and the hillclimb after finishing the 18th really just finishes you off.
The layout too, while I enjoy it, tends to be a pretty solitary environment, in that you donâ€™t tend to see too many others on course, eg, youâ€™re not really passing people coming the other way at any stage.
Then there is the ever present wind and sometimes rain, which tends to add to the fatigue factor, so by the time you do get to the end, youâ€™re pretty well knackered and just looking for either a good lie down, or a hot shower to warm up.
With the clubhouse being something that is less than glamorous, itâ€™s membership numbers (Gunnamatta Golf Club) I would suspect are quite low in comparison to the other courses, so that you donâ€™t have a bar full of people to sit and chat with after the game.
If you just like youâ€™re golf though, its a cracker of a course, but if you want the whole club â€śenvironmentâ€ť, then youâ€™ll naturally look elsewhere in the area I guess.
Its a shame really, as I really enjoy playing there, and you can always have a good laugh with the guys down there.
