Having not played southern, what is wrong or bad about the 12th?

(I did look on website and looks ok so asking from those that have played it.)


3 teired long skinny green. Not gentle slopes to the next teir.
If the flag is on the top teir, you are in strife, as a big tree overhanhs the top section

Theres a tree on the right of the green behind the bunkers but it doesnt impede the line of play unless you're 10m off line anyway. The top tier is hard to get at, given its 160m uphill from the back markers and the tier itself is a small shelf. They only put the pins there on medal days and the other two tiers are a lot more accessible.
People normally complain about the size of the slopes, but you can use them as back stops that feed the ball back to the hole. It's all about club selection and distance control which is why I like it.

I reckon the 12th at Southern is a cracking hole.

Not many holes put more of a premium on correct club choice

12th at southern is good. 

 

The 10th and 18th at Eynesbury however, very poor course design.  On 10 you're left with not much more than a pot luck over bushes to a blind green for your third, followed by a million mile long walk to get back around the creek.  There's no real reward to trying to clear the creek in two - the fairway is too narrow to stop the ball on as it runs perpendicular to play.  And 18, well what 400m par 4 has you needing to lay up with an iron off the tee and then hit a 3 wood for your second.  Weird hole. 

 

The massive tier in the 17th is overkill, and why the 4th is 460m, uphill and into the prevailing wind, yet still a par 4, is beyond me. 

 

If the conditioning is coming back, that's great.  Even though I get a free round there through golf west, it is still 50kms from my house, and not setup to walk.  I don't hate it, but I'm not typically in a mad rush to get back there.

Poorly conditioned when I've played it, lack of memorable holes except for the monster par 4 and the 10th with the creek running through it and it's literally in the middle of nowhere.

Lol,

 

This seems strange because the course reminds me alot of growling frog tbh, with the exception that the fairways at eynesbury are currently very playable, and the frog feels like running one of those "tough mudder" courses. :D

Next course review choice should be Eagle Ridge

 

I just got an email from GCO offering eagle ridge for $58 for 1 player with a cart and a hotdog...

 

I take this as a sign, and may be able to accommodate this request before the next OOM day in 4 weeks.

This..

 

 

Greens have been terribly pitch marked and not repaired and bunkers littered with foot prints. I suspect that has been as a result of "green fee" players not doing the right thing in the past. If you are saying that the greens and bunkers are mint.....then perhaps they are doing some work on it....something it lacked in years gone by.

The Frog may have been from the same designer, but is entirely different in my view. Far more playable, without the stupid hole designs already pointed out.

 

And in case you forgot, I left the place you're at to go to the Frog. And course condition in Winter was certainly no incentive to stay.

Not sure if you're reffering to Yarrambat or Eynesbury with the above quote. I am only a member at the Bat to have a golflink to be able to play Iseekgolf OOM days and very rarely play comp anywhere. What's the point of playing comp when social rounds are so much more enjoyable?

 

All good champ, different strokes for different folks. Just enjoy writing honest reviews based on my experiences on different courses. If 1 person enjoys the read, then it's well worth the effort as far as I'm concerned. I welcome differing opinions to mine, and enjoy the conversation. :D
