There has been much debate about the best courses in the Sandbelt region and Mornington Peninsula...

What about the North and North East?

Unfortunately, I am under plenty of pressure from the missus to pack up from Dingley and move to somewhere more "tranquil". Courtesy of the great Hidden Valley feedback, I got out of moving to the West...but it looks look Eltham or Kangaroo Ground now will get the full brunt of my house search

Crucial to my buying decision is the quality of golf course I can join

Any recommendations for the Eltham area?

Thanks

Mr D

1. That area is a hole.
2. If you have to move there, just join Gisborne.

I've played it a few times but I'm not a fan...

It is always "under construction" (how many times can you remake the 3rd hole???)...and that walk up the hill after 18 is just stupid...need to call me an ambulance

Any other recommendations>?

There is Heidelberg - not a Tier 1 club at all. But in the same class as Rosanna

The berg is not doing very well financially, and started a couch program a few years ago. The three fairways they did are now very impressive evidently, by they still have 11 to go, so you are probably going to look at quite a bit of interruption over the coming years.

There is then Growling Frog that is out near Whittlesea, not private however.

Bundoora - public and moderate to poor

I'll have a think about some others.

What about Jack's place at Wonga Park? Or Croydon?

Neither are too far from Eltham

If you're in KGround, head up Henley Road, jump fence and you're in the new course at the Heritage...

That is

NOT

their joining fee. It is a share purchase price. That said, you'll make a $7-10k loss on the share sale, effectively making it a $7-10k joining fee. And that said, maybe the introduction of the Henley course will make shares worth more than they are now (quite likely actually), meaning that getting over $30k for selling it will be easier. Not a bad move if you are likely to stay there at least 5-10 years. Both courses are really very good.

Agreed, if you live out that way then it's a good long-term investment.
It's only money, Mr D.
