Played there maybe 5 times, but not for a couple of years, and I think it has some good holes. Biggest problem is being in the wettest part of Melbourne and so all but unplayable in Winter.

A few members have defected to Keysborough in recent months.


Ive played with 3 of them at Keysie and not alot of complementary remarks about the place.
Members deserting the place is the general remark due to appalling condition.

When I was hunting for a club a few years ago I considered this due to proximity/price.... The way I saw it then was the joint is a rats nest and the sooner it becomes residential development the better.... and to read conditions are even worse now is hard to believe as they were terrible when I was there.

Mouldy, I went and had a look after work yesterday, i have the paperwork in hand, just a matter of filling them in and Tay and I will have a new home.

Thanks to the OP for helping make up my mind, I have not been happy at WGC for a while, they seem more intent on moving than maintaining. I especially look forward to playing with no overhead power lines.

You're welcome! The more golfers we can save playing that poor excuse of a course the better! Props to you for a- hanging in there that long and b- finally deciding to get out of there!

Wish I had read this post earlier. I played this course on Monday, as it was on my bucket list of courses to try and it was a sham. Cant believe what a waste of time it was. Terrible condition, and was one of the most undulating courses I have walked on. Only consolation was the friendly 4 some ahead of me who were deeply apologetic at the turn for their pace of play. I should have told them I was playing faster than usual - to get it over with.

Something worse, it seems.

 

Looks like Keysie will be his next stop.

Moved over to Waverley early last year for Taylars development.

 

Now moved to Keysie for mine.

Been paid up for a couple of weeks,WGC must be feeling the pinch, the GM rang me to see if we were going to pay our fees as they were due April 1st, sorry I'm no fool.

 

According to the office at KGC we are the 38/39 players from WGC this year, wonder where all the others went.
