i played huntingdale yesterday in the legacy day. I must say how disappointed we were with the course condition at the moment. The greens were disgusting. The greens were pretty much the worst condition I have putted on since playing back on the old spring park public track. The sand in the bunkers were grossly inconsistent and very scrappy areas just off the fairway in the rough. Granted the fairway condition was good, like most courses in melbourne this time of the year. I'd also suggest that they replace that rotting back deck, before someone falls through it and lodges a lawsuit. Pretty bad. All in all very dis-appointing... speaking to at least 8-10 others after the round they were of the same view. for what "some people" hang on the the "masters" legacy, you got to be kidding yourself.... It would be an embarrassment to hold a tourney there if yesterday is anything to go by.

It's like meeting your hero as a kid and finding out he's a ###### faced wanker.... Leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

Hack As far as the back deck going I suspect it won't be replaced as they are about to embark on building a new clubhouse.

It's all coming down soon! Brand new one being built,

Golf is not a game of perfect!

I won't bother responding to the OP as he is entitled to his own opinion, no matter how wrong it is. I will respond to The Yub's post by saying that you are only embarrassing yourself with comments like that.

Hackproyou obviously hit in the trees all day off the tee and put it into the bunkers as well. Bunkers are a hazard and the day after a hot day you should be able to excuse the greens a little

Didnt miss alot of fairways thanks chipshot, i am not one to say one course it better than the other, as different courses appeal to different players and people. In my 25 or so years of golfing all over the world i have played so many tracks all at different levels and conditions, they all have their little pros and cons.... thanks for the comment though. :)

also i'd like to clarify that this opinion was pretty consistent with at least our group and 2 other groups that we spoke to. All members from different melbourne based courses. So it was not only my opinion, we cant all be wrong. sorry if I offended you huntingdale chaps, but the truth is right there to be seen. If you recon that its in good nik atm, thats laughable. Lucky i was paying for charity, otherwise I would have been spewing....
