Which one, the new one or the old clubhouse, ha. There's talk of making it into townhouses, but i rather like the old one even though it's not used anymore, it gives the course a bit of character. IMO the new clubhouse has the feeling of a coles supermarket at midnight, blah.........

Good one looks very nice indeed. All credit to the Course Super and all his staff, Well done! Golf courses don't look the part without tremendous amounts of dedication and hard work by those few who are often unfairly criticised and rarely praised in my view for their efforts.

Bump Look at that and know why we have preferred lies. You available for hire? I think you might be able to teach our "greenkeeper" a thing or two.

Don't be too critical of other course supers. We have a massive budget and pretty much unlimited water. The club just recently purchased outright 3 brand new Toro fairway mowers at $65,000 each, that's the kind of budget i'm talking about

I know what you are talking about, our equipment budget wouldn't even buy the wheels

Took this in Aug 07 when we installed the new irrigation system on the old course. Contractor not paying attention while driving down the 5th fairway. Another bloke did the same thing about a week later

The Old is extremely under rated. And it is walkable. If anything, I find the Moonah more exhausting to walk.

Do you have any pics of the Merc in the bunker from a few years back?
