What do you think is the worst private golf club you have played on. For me its Roseville.
I still think its an okay golf course but i's not in the class of other private clubs.

I don't have a nomination, but I'm predicting that Southern will get a bit of a mention here:P

I'd say that the worst "private" club I've played on is Federal (but the private clubs I've played on are Royal types and federal)

Either Kalgoorlie or Boulder golf club in Kalgoorlie WA... The people are nice, but the courses are disgraceful and they choose some very poor times to play.

I might travel back when the resort opens, that course could be interesting.

Chopper - Federal is far more friendly these days, encouraging social play after 4 every day with a $20 deal - they need the $ to pay for water...

I played at the $%#@ farm (eastern sward) about 6 years ago in a social group, I'm sure it is private and is pretty bad.

Not a bad pick Par Master, it'd be hard to beat that one. There are obviously worse courses but the ones I can think of all are not private in the way Roseville is.

Parmaster,

I would be interested in your definition of ‘Private’.

Par Master and Peanuts are on the money. 'Royal' Roseville must be up there

What is your definition of "worst"?

Course location?
Course layout?
Course condition?
Clubhouse?
Facilities?
Members?

Well to me that means unless you know a member or its an open day you can't ring up and book in for a game.

The worst private club i have played at is cromer golf club. i was a member there for 5 years up until last year when i joined long reef. after having a hole in 1 there during a sat comp i was given a pueter to drink out of, when in the bar, that was to be refilled for me by any member i nominated.until i was told i had had too much to drink after 5 refills and was asked to leave, great way to remember my 1st hole in 1! a member there who was a club champ and pennant team capt wrote a letter to the board offering suggestions on how the course could be improved. approx 100 members, each paying over $3k yearly subs, co signed the letter. the only response this guy got was a letter from the president, who is a magistrate, threatening legal action as the guy writing ther letter apparently defamed the current course superintendant. not one of the points raised in the letter were ever answered. other letters were written looking for answers and zero replys were recieved. the club lacks attmosphere and gives the impression of a gentlemans club with 18 holes in the give up. if you get a chance to play cromer give it a shot, but i wouldnt recommend joining.

ballina on the north coast, the members really think it the best course on the north coast, some really horrible people & the course is flat boring & there is millions of midgies & mossies. if you come up here dont play there, the pro is a awful excuse for a pro & the clubhouse welcome is not nice at all. a rip off to join, wont say how much it is but the most expensive course on the north coast to be a member.
