Was wondering how long it would take for people to get sick of paying $85 for an average round of golf!

$85 is that all?
There are at least 7 here on the gold coast well past that price point, and none of the owners have realised the same thing yet either.

With the Gold Coast prices (and a similar story for the trio up in Cairns/Port Douglas), do they tend to survive because of the greater percentage of sunny weather chasing holiday golfers? in other words, golfers who are less cost-conscious due to being on a holiday they've flown to. It seems to be the Aussie version of Florida. They seem to still get reasonable trade by offering those multi day passes for a few courses a little cheaper.
Down here, a higher percentage of the Mornington Peninsula golfing is by Victorian based day trippers on a regular day off.
I'll bet that the average golfing visitor to the Gold Coast doesn't know how all the courses roughly rank against each other, and doesn't target the specific courses they might want. Many Vics (unlike some of us nerds) can't even name them and wouldn't know one from the other until they'd been up there. One bloke went up to play "the Glades course at Sanctuary Cove and Royal Meadows". They see any 8-10 of them eligible to become one of the final 3-4 they end up playing. Wheras the visitor to down here who plays three games will probably choose at least two of them based carefully on expected course quality and reputation.

Whether the Gold Coast courses "tend to survive" is a matter for speculation, most have been sold and onsold a few times over. The Glades is one thats doing it real hard right now.
Most of the the clientel that frequent these courses are the holiday makers, typically from the asian market, or those who are so blessed to think nothing of payin $100+ for a round and there is plenty of them.
