My nomination is: Rosanna....4 years of works on the course, holes constantly out of play, bad conditioning and a pro shop that bans players from having any type of logo on socks....could be so much better A quick word on Southern from an insider - I am only having a crack due to the conditioning of the course. Once famed for its greens, now even the weeds struggle to find a reason to grow there. As a member, i havent played it for almost 6 weeks, and i dont miss it. That is scary.

I was a member of Southern throughout the 1990's until 2002 and the course condition was as good as it gets. The fairways in particular were great and the greens started to come good after metal spikes were outlawed. However, the layout is ordinary and it's a shame the course condition seems to have gone down hill. I played Rosanna recently and the layout is ok but the condition was very poor and is the worst private course I've played (out of a dozen or so private Melbourne courses). As "clubs" go I can't say I take much notice - I just like to play golf.

The Salisbury Golf Links on Diament rd, trust me guys, it`s a par 3 course so badly maintained you'll be shitty with yourself for spending $15 to play there. All the facilaties are close to condemnation, all greens are under repair, most holes so short you'll pitch them and where the design may have once allowed for a resonable hole..... they're busy trying to stuff it by putting in a water feture or trench or something. Easily the worst I've ever seen, bar none.

Royal Sydney. Apart from the par3's its flat and boring and the members are the most unfriendly people I've ever met.

IMO Rossdale is a very ordinary 'private' club. :)
