Carnarvon is a remarkably well maintained course in great nick. I am not a member there so I can't really speak of the general ability to obtain a weekend game, but the few times I have played mid week, it has been slow. Can't really say for sure, but I think it may have a little to do with the number of players on course that think they are K.J.Choi, but play like Charlie Carp.

Awesome mate. I'm a member at Livo, so a little biaised, but most Sydney golfers will attest that it's a great layout and generally in good nick. Membership is solid value - much, much more so than Strathfield. I've not had a chance to play Carnarvon, but one of the pros in the Livo pro shop came over from there recently. Livo is in Lansvale - have a look at the website, go have a hit and see what you think. I've never had a problem with getting a preferred time slot on weekends. Cheers.

SAF, also check out Cumberland Golf Course. I live in Lidcombe near Carnarvon, but am a member of Cumberland (it's exactly 12 minutes away via the M4 on an early Saturday morning ;) Cumberland's joining fees are currently waived and and their yearly fee's are quite cheap compared to similar quality courses.

Hi Leftfoot thanks for the reply i was just looking at Cumberland and noticed they have no joining fee. My only concern is when i called i was told there is a ballot on friday nights and i work Friday nights. Would this make it hard to get a time on saturday morning befor 9.30?

Hi Saf, I think for all courses, comps start at about 6.30am-8.30am, then fom 11.00am to 1pm.... This allows them to get the maximum numbers onto the field for two tee starts. All courses would have some type of ballot system as well, I think Liverpool is also Friday. ( I used to be a member there as well) At Cumberland, I usually play as a single on Saturdays and 90% of the time I can book in for the following Saturday when I come in to play my round each week. If not, then I put myself on the waiting list and will surely get my desired time, since there are guaranteed to be cancellations. You will find that you can get your desired tee time for most courses as they are all down on numbers of members. Rgds.

Hey Saf, At Livo if you can't make it to the clubhouse on Fridays you can book in online from 1900 Friday night for the Sat a week later. If you're at the club you can book in via a ballot from 1800, so only an hour difference. I play as a single and rarely hit off after 0700 on Sat/Sat. I book in online just after 1900 and I usually end up in 2nd, 3rd or 4th group off - usually before 0630...best of luck either way mate. Good courses to choose from on this side of town, for sure...
