I have started to look into joining a golf club. The only decent courses I have played in Sydney (NSW, St Michaels and Concord) all fall outside my primary criteria which is 30 mins from my house in the Chatswood area.
I have read some of the "Avondale vs Pymble vs Killara" and the where should I play "Elanora or Avondale or Terrey Hills" posts but they seem to be a bit older and I wonder if things have changed significantly.
I'm going to judge on:
- Proximity (30 mins)
- Quality of course (do I like it/do I want to play it often)
- Openness of club (I will know no one so I need the club/members to be welcoming to new members)
- Path for juniors for my kids should they continue to play (too young to join at the moment but keen)
- Business (I don't want it to be too busy that I can't get a game or 5+ hours when I do get a game)
Any thoughts – advice appreciated before I start progressing.
