About 210 metres down hill, surely memorable short opening hole have to go to Victoria Club. At a charity match, with large bunkers protecting the front fairway, must new players read too much into it and tee off with irons and fair woods or hybrids. ...
Ha ha, me, the last to tee off in the second last flight waited until the 1st green was cleared and took out my driver ! The golfers from at the last flight was thinking what an ambitious golfer to wait for the green to clear. Drove straight down, cleared the bunkers landed 10-20 metres before the green, ball ran on and over the green by 15 metres and stopped 20 metres before the 2nd tee.
Damn! did a lousy chip and 2 putted for a par.
The next 3 holes, all par 4's look and feel the same. it was like ground hog day !!!!
Not playing there any more if I have to pay for it and don't ask me to join that club too. It's not the members, it's the course and should be rated towards 75 in Australia I recon but I have only played 6 golf courses in Victoria lol
