If you are looking for courses in sydney then the Lakes would be the best of the "big 4" followed by st michaels. Moore Park is a good course but there are better courses is money isnt the issue. The coast is a great course with a good GM too. St Michales has a great Pro and practise facilities as well as being the best rated course in the inner city outside, NSW, The Lakes, RS and The Aussie. Stone cutters ridge will be a good course but just cause its designed by Norman doesnt mean it will get rated higher then the others.

i had this exact attitude from a lady at Woolooware, a public course when i rang about joining, i nearly laughed at her. I said hi i am ringing about membership, she said we have a few yr wait and hung up. so i rang back and asked about their options whicj she promptlyt told me to write a letter the club president and hung up again..

what is wrong with people?! It costs nothing to show respect, manners and interest - one day their membership wait might be 1 month and then they'll redefine their phone manner. Many of the great Melbourne clubs have found their membership wait cut by player disinterest and ridiculous joining fees and now they understand the value of potential and current members. Over the next ten years it will all be redefined again as membership models are changed to reflect the current marketplace. then those old girls will be well and truly retired :)

Played last week with a mate who is a member there. I asked about the waiting list and he said it’s down to 4 years :)

Best Threadmine Ever There were Chilean miners buried in a hole more shallow than the one this was in.

Necro'd the hell out of it. I'd love to join a club like that though, then go all Caddyshack on them.

Time between posts - February 2008 - November 2011. We've had better ones, but this is right up there.

The first impression you get of a club, is from the phone manner in the office, Doesn`t rate, as a World class course, play La Perouse, Has a beautiful old clubhouse, Had a beer at an Open, with clubhouse pass, Members were friendly but very old, think they`ll struggle in 15 years or so.

Sorry folks. Very simple explanation. I googled "royal sydney golf club membership fees" and top of the list was this thread. I only started contributing here yesterday and I only asked the question about the waiting list last Thursday and thought I'd share. If I had asked him what he was paying there, then I wouldn't have found this thread. I certainly wasn't "thread mining", I just stumbled over it.
