Just wondering how some of the decisions get made as to where particular courses are stated to be located, region-wise.

I noticed a few oddities in the Victorian section:

 

"Spring Park"  is stated to be in the "south east", yet it is across the road from Southern, which is in the sandbelt. Curiously the club that plays from this course (Forest Hills) is stated to be in mornington peninsula.

 

Churchill Park/Waverley is stated to be in the Sandbelt - this is highly arguable, and I guess if you would call this sandbelt then why not Glen Waverly and Rowville Lakes/Tirhtuan? To me these are all in the South East. 

 

Sandringham Public is across the road from Royal Melbourne, yet characterised as South East? Simlar for Brighton - surely thats in the sandbelt?. Granted its no "Melbourne Sandbelt" in terms of quality, but one is  going to be strict about it then Woodlands and Spring Valley are also not in the "Melbourne Sandbelt"

 

How can Franskton and Long Island be Sandbelt - surely they are in Mornington peninsula? And I think the same could be said for Peninsula-Kingswood, although poltically they are aligned with the "Melbourne Sandbelt"

 

Chelsea public - is this not in the sandbelt? 

 

Garfield - this is in Gippsland, not mornington

 

Box Hill, Riversdale, Berwick-Montuna, Beaconhills - these are all in the east of Melourne and not sandbelt

 

How should Cranbourne, Ranfurlie Settlers Run Pakenham be treated? These are much more sandbelt than BoxHill, Riversdale etc -they have been characterised as Mornington which is arguable, to me they are either sandbelt or South East

 

 

A few other notes:

Kingston Links, Elsternwick, Amstel are all closed

Metropolitan does not show up on the Sandbelt screen, although when searching for it it comes up as sandbelt

It was probably all outsourced to India.

Just like calling Tocumwal a Victorian club even though it's in NSW.

My car GPS (Whereis maps) can't find Garfield Golf Club even though it is, in fact, in Garfield.
