longy is a super track,

Patto is average and it’s fees reflect that

i also have some rights there and play it every few months with friends, i have always enjoyed my golf there and shot some super scores there, but the company i played with far outweighed the course.

I believe the fees are higher than Keysbourgh & Southern which are far better courses & only 5 mins up the road.

i thought they were charging ariound 1800 per year, and some deal of 2nd member 1/2 price, no joining fee

if thats the case, it’s far cheaper than keysy and also cheaper than southern.

but i dont exactly know what patto are charging,

WOW, just had a look at there web site $2,100 & year for 7 day membership.

About par then with other courses in the area

well if thats the case then it's a rip for sure

Um, Is it just me? Or has everyone forgotten the point here? Is anyone out there playing golf? My game is improving no end. Loving every minute of it at PRCC. Best golfing decision i have made in a long while. I am even relocating in the not too distant future to be within walking distance. See you on Saturday, I've been practising, It won't be my shout this week! :)

Had a game here today, generally good! Quite tight lies on the fairways and greens had just been cored lately, but generally played quite well. Off the line of play some of the turf and surrounds were a bit bare though. I agree with previous comments regarding the out of place quality of some of the mounding, especially RHS 1st. I did think the clubhouse and alfresco area was fabulous. How long ago did the course works take place? What was changed?

Played PR one month ago during our wet & cold spell and the course was in good condition. There were areas that need work but it is a place in progress and come the warmer months the conditions will improve. Hospitable pro staff, pleasant club house facilities, practice areas seem fine , overall definately worthy of another visit. They may have some internal issues but they are transparent to visitors.

I was quite impressed on the changes since I last played there. (Too many years to remember) Considering the conditions of other courses (including Settlers) I thought the fairways were excellent and naturally will get better as the weather improves. Bunkering was fairly consistent and extensive and with the numerous water hazards, I believe it is a great challange. It's obvious there are still "works in progress" but I would highly recommend it over certain other neighbouring courses.

It's only subjective, SS so I'll decline on shaming.

SeptemberSquall, course was entirely changed, virtually tipped upside down to use sand that was buried under topsoil / mud. Took years to complete as they kept 18 holes in play the whole time, which sadly was hard work for all. It commenced about 8 - 10 years ago, & was back in full play about 4 - 5 years ago. The course does stay relatively dry, mostly as the fairways, etc. are designed to shed water into the many hazards, which also has the effect of running a lot of balls into the same hazards... This may surprise some that I am saying this, but there actually has been some stability in the staff over the past 12 months, which no doubt leads to happier staff. The Pro Shop is outsourced to a local Pro, who recently won PGA pro of the year. Clubhouse area was upgraded years ago, coinciding with the redevelopment of the course. Even a brand new surfaced carpark greets you nowadays instead of the potholed variety. This had been on the agenda of every Board for years with the current one levying Members to finalise the project.

OK francie, your perogative. I had thought this was a message board, designed for the sharing of subjective opinions? I am interested to hear your thoughts! haha

Played at PRCC today and find it quite enjoyable. The poa grass has invaded the bent grass greens though. Good wide driving holes and will play better next time. Cannot lose a ball. Well Done.
