A mate who learnt his golf at King Island gave me a heads up about this course that opens in October this year.

Impressive.   I suspect wind would have a lot of influence but the reviews suggest It can be handled by high handicappers as well.

I'm not sure about that.....I think there is a helicopter trip available but I suspect there is light plane access too as the flights are from airports of Moorabbin and Essendon....suggests smaller planes I suspect will be able to land.    Just MHO??

The original deal was a game at both Barnbougle courses and 9 holes at King Island GC.  The King island leg will obviously change now.

They are currently recruiting for greenskeeping staff..

And they have been running sneak preview rounds for various people, I suspect aimed at building publicity overseas and getting into world top 100 ranking lists..

This place is fcuken gorgeous!!!!!!! FMD!!!!!!!!! Greenkeeper porn without. A doubt.
