Being a beginner and trying out the public courses that are around town I have narrowed it down to two courses that I think the council would be better off developing :

 

- Brighton Public

- Elsternwick

 

These are absolute shockers and make Sunshine and Melbounre Airport look like PGA quality courses.

I used to play at Elsternwick when I first got into the game about 15 years ago

Seemed OK at the time but I had nothing to compare it against

Went back there for a hit and giggle with some old high school mates about 5 or 6 years ago and couldn't believe what I saw

It looked like the only person mainatining the course must be a 14 yo work experience kid

Greens were like shagpile

All bunkers were overgrown with weeds

Fairways like the back paddock on a dairy farm.

Easily the worst course I've seen in metro Melb

Go to Waverley Golf.

 

Elsternwick may be nirvana by comparison.

 

Melton Valley, Northcote...also utter crap.

Interesting  even no i am not a huge fan of this place and i know few people at  this course, but last time i played  i thought the conditions of the course was in rather good  but that was over 12 months ago, but didnt have to pay green fee's to play  so must have went down

Council want those for other purposes, so they have adopted the Parks Victoria formula. Run it down so that nobody would want to keep it as a golf course and then nobody will complain when they close it.

In fairness Oz, it's a few years since I was there.

 

But based on that...I wasn't going back.

I really liked Melton Valley when I played it 😂, condition was decent and holes were fun enough.

Last time I played Northcote I was told I was in for a treat and it was the best it's been in years, it was the worst I have ever seen it and not worthy of $10.
Westgate is also worth avoiding.
Royal Park is also struggling compared to the last few years as well.

Dorset and Ringwood are in very good condition. Maroondah Council are making money on them.

I've only played Dorset once...in the pouring rain...so difficult to comment.

 

Ringwood I've played plenty of times...and always reckon for a course that gets the traffic it does, it's usually in terrific nick.

Is Waverly the course just off Stud Rd?

Never played it but thought it had a good rep?

Agree Ghetto. That's too harsh. As a public access course I think it's as good if not better than Gardiners Run

Airport is an institution! With possibly the smallest greens anywhere in Vic outside of mini golf
