Hey has anyone heard of this before, I am recently getting back into golf after a couple of years out due to shoulder surgery and moving to south coast nsw. I signed up with my closest club 6 weeks ago and due to work have only managed to get 1 game in. While i'm in Sydney this week visiting family i tried to play comp but was told that i needed to play at least 5 out my last 15 rounds at my home course. This is to stop ghost membership or people signing up at cheaper courses i was told. I explained i only have 1 game under my belt and was happy to show proof of address on checking in but rules are rules. Thought it was funny that with so many vacant spots in the midweek comp they would be happy to take our $80. Guess the owner of my local driving range was lying when he said golf membership is declining and clubs are doing it tough.

Some clubs have been doing this for about 4 yrs now but most work on the 1 in last 5 or 5 of 20 rule.    What club did you join??  What club wouldn't let you play in the comp??

I joined shell cove and was trying to play at George's river. Ended up ringing around and Beverly park, kogarah and Wollongong don't have this rule in place. What was interesting was port Kembla wanted $60 for walking in the comp. $30 for fees plus $30 penalty due to being shell cove member.

 I'm surprised Georges River introduced it.  The place is a goat track and could do with all the funds it can get.  The other thing that seems strange is that you only have 1 game under your belt at SCL so how the hell can they enforce a 5 of 15.  Is the SCL membership a lifestyle or full member??

No confusion. If they were under 50, regardless of grandchildren, they were an easy target on a quiet Saturday night. Especially, after a hard day in the cricket field and a few beers afterwards.
