from out of state considering a move to "sleepy" Adelaide.

Actually visiting Adelaide for a week in December, one of the big considerations is gonna be which golf club to join.

I'm looking at Glenelg and Grange golf clubs as they currently have no wait list.  Any opinions on either welcome.

If there are any members on here, how easy is it to get on to play. My home club in Sydney is a nightmare, if i don't book a week in advance, forget it, seems to be comps everyday and little if any turn up and play social golf.

I'd like a club where i can on occasions just turn up for 9 holes having decided that morning that I have some free time, or grab a quick six holes after work, do either of these courses fit that bill.

thx

dont know to much about the courses as i havent played them  however ii would most likely pick  grange   being a 36 holes where glenelg is only 1 course   , having 36 holes it would be much easier to get a quick 9 in or a quick 6 holes in afterwork if that is what you are after....

 

i know grange has a trains running through the course  and will effect some holes

Got a mate who is member at Glenelg GC . Cost is $3319 per year.

.

if you are looking to just roll up whenever feel like it forget both these clubs.

 

strictly members only, comps 3 days per week and need to book a set tee times.

 

iT sounds like you just want just causal golf in that case why not consider, Patawalonga.

Tee tree gully or Mt Lofty might also be cheaper options.

I am a member at Glenelg and also very familiar with The Grange.

 

Both clubs run time sheets every day. Saturdays are generally very busy at both clubs with bookings a week in advance. 

 

At my club except Saturday you can easily play socially after 2pm when the time sheet finishes. You can also play on the time sheet socially on most days. (comp is not compulsory)

 

Ozdevil- you know wrong :lol: , the train runs through Royal Adelaide not The Grange

glenelg is a great spot , home of the mighty tigers , affectionately known as the bays. I spent plenty of time at the beach and amusement park as a kid and then lennys as a youth, i imagine the GC is pretty good, in any case about the only other place other than MELB id live in aust . the choice is simple :)

Thx for that I always thought for some reason the grange line ran through grange golf club....  I new a train line went through a golf club somewhere down that way.....   for some reason I thought  royal Adelaide   was  the grange golf club  back when I was living in Adelaide,,, but was never into golf then and the reason I thought it was grange was when I 1st moved to Adelaide I  caught the grange train  and because it was close to grange  I assumed it was the grange golf club...

I agree that Glenelg is a great place. Spent time there myself when I traveled in SA. It's got it all, beaches, most excellent waterslides, and the climate was good too.

I played both the Grange and Glenelg a few years ago in March. 2013 I think??? I can't remember too much about the holes but I think the Grange was the one that sticks in the mind more.

I ALSO PLAYED ROYAL ADELAIDE TOO.....just sayin'

Think you would be better joining The Grange. Having 36 holes is a lot more appealing. Variety in courses to play and should ensure you get on without too much issue outside of comp times. Both courses at The Grange and Glenelg are high quality. When I played there last year, members at both were very sociable and friendly. So don't think you can go wrong at either.

Played Glenelg for the first time last week and in a word, great.

Played Kooyonga and Royal Adelaide the same weekend and I'd have to say it gave them both a run for their money.

RA was incredibly tough: 3 foot rough everywhere and almost unplayable on some holes.

Kooyonga much more playable, and in great nick. Maybe needs a few trees cleared and 3 of the par 5's were very reachable so perhaps needs a bit of an overhaul.

Played Grange West after the Clayton renovations a few years ago but haven't played Grange East since the Norman renovations

Glenelg has gone up the rankings recently and is now ranked above both the Grange courses but I wouldn't be surprised if Grange East goes up a lot in the next round.

Tough decision, 36 holes would be nice though.

Hope that helps, maybe more confused than ever
