I didn't realise people actually played at how long. I thought they just used then for membership.

I'm on a Murray Golf trip visiting Howlong this October. I have never visited the place, a mate of mine on the trip has not been to Howlong since they had sandscrapes there.

 

I've read a few threads here comments about people being members but never playing the course. Can anyone enlighten me on the joke here? I'd be interested to know!

Hi Nick,

 

No joke...with the costs of joining clubs expensive for those of us that play very infrequently, Howlong offer a "Country Membership" for $99.00 per year, with a maintained H'çap, no requirement to play there.

 

A lot of metro clubs have their noses out of place over it.

 

Horses for courses...I don't mind paying a little more to play in a local comp because I use this method.
