Wouldn't close the door on it. Its a good club with a very nice course & facilities plus some very reasonable subs.

Congrats mate, I think it's a highly under rated course.
Great facilities too.

When I lived out there I looked at joining a few times but each time I went down there the conditioning was below average.

If they ever get the conditioning up to scratch it's a ripping track

I agree ...facilities are great, it's a good track too. Personally, I reckon it's a bit tough and has sneaky water all over the place. I reckon the existing membership probably felt the same way, hence why many haven't renewed.

But at the price they're offering, it's a great deal.

I'm really excited about playing my golf there from next month. The facilities are first class & the course is a good challenge. Goldy is certainly correct with the assessment of the course's difficulty in the early days, it was ridiculously tough with knee high rough & hidden water traps but that long rough is now gone and some of the fairway bunkers have been filled in & replaced with wooly mounds. The fairways seem more generous & there's now a couple of cuts around the water hazards so if your ball heads in that direction, it does have a chance to pull up in the second cut. I think the club have finally realised that having a course so difficult to play will cost it members as they'll lose enjoyment of the game. Who enjoys scoring 22pts & losing 10 pills every time they play?

Anyone keen on a hit with me at Yering is most welcome, give me a few weeks to suss things out a bit first though. Cheers.

What are the course conditions like at the moment.

Last I played there (early April) it was still nice and firm and the hazards were very low, so plenty of room for runoff....now that it is really winter and we had so much rain, it might start getting a little heavy. Playing there again Sunday.

18 of the 27 holes closed this weekend.  Holes 19-27 have been closed for a few weeks but the front nine is closed this weekend too.  Having played there last weekend, six of the front nine were very wet whilst holes 10-18 had held up quite well bar for a patch in the middle of the 18th.  Its been a very wet winter so far, could be lean times on the course the next month or so.  Having a weekend off this weekend, could be a few other enforced layoffs.

 

P.S.  You're welcome anytime LH, prob best to wait a few months though :)

Not much you can do about if it's unplayable. Most reasonable golfers would have to understand that.

If your smart about it you can get 2 for $40 walking and 2 for $60 in a cart.
Those vouchers pop up all the time, still not enough to lure me back in.

Thanks, were do you see these vouchers as I wouldn't mind another game there ....the only time live played it was in a hurricane and the greens were like concrete .....not the easiest course first time round

It's caused a little angst among a few but most have just accepted it as Roy alluded to, I mean, what can be done?  

 

I've just decided to have a break this weekend, get some stuff around the house done etc. I'm off to Tocumwal next weekend to have a hit with the old man and we'll get in a round at Cobram on Saturday then at Tocumwal on Sunday.  I would've gone for a hit this arvo with another forum member who was generous enough to change his own plans to allow me to play had I been available.
