Being a beginner and trying out the public courses that are around town I have narrowed it down to two courses that I think the council would be better off developing :


- Brighton Public

- Elsternwick


These are absolute shockers and make Sunshine and Melbounre Airport look like PGA quality courses.




I used to play at Elsternwick when I first got into the game about 15 years ago

Seemed OK at the time but I had nothing to compare it against

Went back there for a hit and giggle with some old high school mates about 5 or 6 years ago and couldn't believe what I saw

It looked like the only person mainatining the course must be a 14 yo work experience kid

Greens were like shagpile

All bunkers were overgrown with weeds

Fairways like the back paddock on a dairy farm.

Easily the worst course I've seen in metro Melb


Having had the "pleasure" of 9 holes there on Sunday, and heading back there for pennant this week...Elsternwick is a deadset shithole.


Shitt fairways, greens and facilities.


Other than that...brilliant.

I have pennant at Brighton this week, so I hope it's not as bad as suggested.
