Anyone tried Yarrambat Golf Course? How does this course compare to Rosanna or Heidelberg? Thanks.

Public vs private. So don't have high expectations. I played there for a couple of years before moving to the Frog. Not in the same league as any of the others.

Yarrambat is a serviceable public course.  

 

There is nothing overly wrong with it, but it’s not even in the same ball park as I imagine EGC to be (Never played the new EGC). I haven’t played Yarrambat in years so won’t comment on current condition or accessibility.

 

Overall it’s not overly long. Heavily treed in places and can be quite narrow. There are a couple of decent hills to conquer and a little bit of water. Decent enough variety for a public track but nothing stands out as being amazing.

 

I have only played Heidelberg once, many moons ago and didn’t particularly enjoy the experience (the people, not the course) but from memory, the H/Berg course is definitely a better layout than Yarrambat.

 

If you’re open to a public course, Growling Frog is, IMO, the premier layout in that area. I also like Mandalay in Beveridge but it’s a bit of a hike.

The frog is better than Yarrambatt, Whittlesea and Mandalay IMO.  Have played Heidelberg and Rosanna and would probably play the Frog before both of them as I don't 

like the hills at heidleberg and not a fan of the layout of Rosanna. (im a Whittlesea member btw)

 

If someone is living in Eltham though, it would depend on where about in Eltham, if your closer to Lower Plenty your going to go Rosanna / Heidelberg (or Kew/Greenacres/Latrobe)

or if your further out towards Kangaroo Ground you head to Eastern / Gardiners Run, Heritage. 

 

Getting to Yarrambatt / Frog / Whittlesea at the moment with the road works would add 15 -20 min on your drive.
