  No doubt we all are aware of golf clubs/courses that have Stay & play deals. However I am looking at a slightly different slant on it.I have noticed several clubs that are going for stay & play deals for caravaners. Have not been able to take advantage of one yet. This has got to be a Win-win situation with the travellers picking up cheap accommodation & the club picking up green fee players that they may not overwise attract. Also if the  club has Meals available the travellers will often have a meal at the club. What are others thoughts on this idea ? & who knows of clubs that allow this?

I guess that power supply may be a problem overnight if the caravanner isn't set up for it.

Are the grey nomads prepared to be awoken at an ungodly hour by the green staff starting work with the sparrows??

Make use of the amenities while the club is open after round would be a bonus.

Added security of having someone stay in carpark overnight.

Mostly positives I can see out of this Pom.

Pom, my mate lives in Sth Aust, has a winabago and has told me about this. I just cant see it working, they will eat your cheap meals, use the facilities........but what does the club get?

Pom, while you're heading east along Vic's coast, try Yarram.
The course is quite good and there's a caravan park attached.
BYO meals though.

If you get that far, you might as well go on to Bairnsdale for a reputedly great course. I don't know about caravan facilites near the course, but it's a big town.

Coomealla on the Murray does packages for caravanners I believe, also houseboats. I played the course last year and it is quality.

Great clubhouse, nice restaurant, short drive to Mildura.

A lot of these travellers do not need power .In that case what does it cost the club to have caravaners staying overnight. Surely the meals are sold above cost price & the club gets green fees that it may not have received otherwise.Hilltop Golf club near Mooroopna is one going down this track. They are offering powered sites but only if you play the course. I believe they  may be charging a small fee also. I believe Kerang ,up on the Murray have half a dozen sites available behind the club house but only for golfers.
