I've always enjoyed the Latrobe clubhouse.


Haven't been over to Latrobe for maybe 6 or 7 years . It was not very appealing in those days but for memory they were talking about a reno.... has this been the case ??

I'm a car park golfer myself.  :)

 

Tip: Don't park near the chipping green.

I would be happy in a greenkeepers shed if it served nice cold beer after the game with mates. In my opinion the grandness of a clubhouse doesn't make it a great clubhouse.

 

 

One of the best I've been in was Lexton Golf Club (probably no one have heard of it).  Old drafty building with a massive open fire to warm up by on a winters afternoon, locals running the bar the lady golfers had put on veggie soup and no one wants to leave. Haven't seen anything like it in metropolitan areas that compare.

The view from the deck at Ocean Shores is pretty crap, not a spot anyone would like to enjoy a beer after a round.

Gosnells many years ago erected a marquee while they were renovating their clubhouse and I believe it was the best income their bar sales had ever seen.

A common denominator flowing through ‘what makes a good clubhouse?’ seems to be atmosphere and ‘warmth’. We recently had a weekend at Dormie House at Moss Vale golf course in the Southern Highlands of NSW. What a pleasant surprise this place was. Really good club where the GM personally came up and introduced himself to our group and had a chat. His daughter was helping him with the raffles and looked after our tickets when we had to go next door for dinner. Bar and wait staff couldn’t have been friendlier.

Similar experience some years back @ Duntryleague, enhances the visit.

I have spent time in the clubhouse and facilities at Royal Sydney and it's quite an amazing place - thick with history. Probably my pick, but yes the criteria for a good CH can vary depending on what you consider the important things are.

This is actually a great thread to read...

 

For my two cents, Royal Sydney, not as stuffy as many may expect, mostly just people with old mates or younger parents with their well behaved kids
