I hope St Andrews Beach is built, the courses are both
extraordinary and they make a lot of money out of it. Goodwill
aside, as we have previously discussed I'm struggling to
understand how all the new developments on the Peninsula are
going to attract enough traffic, not just St Andrews Beach. You
will have two courses at Moonah Links, at least two courses on
the Medalist site next to the National and two courses at St
Andrews Beach. Then throw in what's already there, two at
Rosebud, Portsea, Sorrento, Flinders, 27 holes at the Dunes, two
and a half courses at the National. That's a lot of golf
courses, particularly in mid winter...
I have no doubt that Mr Doak and the local boy wonder, Mr
Clayton, will build a pair of great golf courses, they both have
the pedigree. I'm just curious as to who exactly is going to
play all these new courses. Do you see a survival of the fittest?
Will St Andrews Beach and Medalist cause enough pain to see other
