Feebs.  All courses require carts for gentlemen of our age group.  Green to tee and tee to fairway are too tough.

 

In terms of challenge StAB then Dunes then Moonah Legends.

 

For a relaxed game with your mates, which I think maybe your preference, Moonah Legends every time.

 

They are all good courses.

 

If you never want to get bored with a golf course it has to be StAB.  My favourite course in Victoria.  However, if hitting driver on par 3s because of the wind is not your bag then pass.

 

If you're cashed up then the National with Long Island as their 4th course is leaps and bounds ahead.

I'm going to spending more time staying near these three courses (well four courses since Moonah has two).  Each club has a membership option and I may take one up. Interested to know from those who have played them all what your preferences are and why.

The Dunes for me, eight days a week! Not sure I can articulate why that and not the others, but just love the joint, even though it has torn me a new one every time I've been there.

Have been beat up by both of the other two, and didn't really enjoy the experience. But I could keep going back to the Dunes, rain, hail, or shine.

Not saying it's a better course as such, but just really love playing there.

You enjoy a good beating

I would like to play StAB again on a good day to make a genuine call on this...after last weekends brutal conditions I really didn't get to take much note of it. Therefore until that happens, my preferred course is The Dunes (out of those two).

 

Same, I don't remember much of the course TBH other than maybe 3 or 4 holes. All I remember is the weather lol.

Surely Eagle Ridge is the crappest course down there.
