I am about to start my trip around Australia. That could take quiet some time. So I am looking for a cheaper option than paying the best part of a thousand dollars for a years membership at my present club when I am unlikely to play there in the next 12 months. All I really need is a home club for handicapping purposes & to pay my fees to GA. Any suggestions please.

I'm tempted to offer to do it for $100pa, but I'd better have committee approval first.
Are you interested?

No. I explained my situation and they were unwilling to come up with anything other than a 5 day membership that would still have been over $700 pa.

$100 sounds good. Will get back to you. Where are You OB?

Has anyone mentioned a $99 Howlong membership?
It's the cheapest and easiest option you'll ever see

I'm surprised Pom that no one has mentioned a little known course called Howlong. I believe it fits exactly the needs you have. How exactly are you defining "around Australia" it definitely sounds like a great trip.

Definition: Go where I want , When I want. If I wake up in the morning & decide that I do not like the view, Pack up & leave. :)
