Great course. Next Nats in QLD should hold the main event over 2 days at Kooralbyn

Its been bantered around on doing that- would people want to play same course twice?  Ive looked at Kooralbyn Thur- Brookwater Fri then off to main event at Pac harbour?

I think it is a course that makes you wanna have another crack straight away. Especially if you have never played.

I like your idea. Would weekend be Birnie and Pac Harbour? That's a fair bit of travel between the 3 destinations.

yes on Pac H and Brib Isl as weekend event. There is some travel but as we found in VIC and now NSW the hardcore ones that play all 6 days dont mind a little drive IF the courses are good enough.  Its our third time in QLD so running out of suitable courses!

 

Its an hour from Kooralbyn to Brookwater- then 1.5 to Pac H on a Friday arvo so may not work! Or up early Saturday.

 

Still some work to go to make it all work!  Tassie I dont think will happen as a Nationals group split on it so wont have the support needed. Will look at alternative event.

That's what a tier1 course should be

Was a top 25 course in the old days
