Does Melbourne even have 50 courses? That seems like a lot. 

 

Roughly 100, depending on where you draw the line around Melb.

I'm Golfnut and so is Commish, if we could ever find Rossdale, I'll have a New.

 

Does anybody still drink that??

 

I'll   arrange a game there in the lead up to the Nats, Commish.......that's if it's still open. :D

 

No way!!! I want to play Capital. :P

 

Ordinary course anyway, but if they have beer Commish will be there.

 

Do they have Furphy or IGP Cloudy Ale on tap???

Just looking at some of the cheap Rossdale packages.  Tempted to jump on the ladies 6 day membership for $490.  Can anyone say what the practice facilities are like at Rossdale?

My guess you will be paying full fee by end of March 19.
Intro offer only.
Practice facilities 50/50

Dan, I'm a former member. Course is average to poor depending on the time of year as it's part of the Edithvale wet lands. Male membership very cliquey.

I was at lunch with a current member last Friday and the Capital thing is a mere mirage in the distance.

The council and local residents are strongly opposed to any redevelopment. Given the fragile nature of the State seat no planning minister is going to override the council.

Given their current and past trading losses there must be a question mark as to whether they're trading whilst insolvent. You obviously know whether members are in any way liable for the club's debts.

There is a driving range somewhere, I'm sure I've seen one. A practice green beside the club house, some netted driving bays nearby.

Oh my.. a disgruntled ex member / Board member here i think? Part of the wetlands ??? 2 holes reclaimed 30 yrs ago. Nothing to do with it at all.
Mouldy very bitter like a few on here.. you all sit around & feel green ?
You had lunch with someone from Capital ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ like they would know what Crown wishes or not wishes to do ?? Let me guess it was Packer you lunched with.
Nice try at downramping the situation

To bring up insolvent & trading shows just a few in here , you are the crew that went to get the keys to Bangy or went towards the River.

Look, I don't intend to leave Rosebud but access to decent practice facilities around where I am (local resident about 2km from the club) is difficult - so question whether a cheap deal would be worth it for me for the super local practice access (if there are decent facilities) and to get on for a game of a Sunday and over Christmas when I can't be bothered to trek to Rosebud.  They have certainly ramped up the advertising recently, and we have received lots of flyer mail outs for functions and offerings from the clubhouse.

I think you will fine that Mouldy was referring to Rossdale member, as for bitter not quite sure about that, it is more that there have been a number of proposed mergers or relocation over the years for Rossdale so there is a fair bit of skepticism on any proposal actually happening.

 

I think it is more about either seeing the actually details of the proposal or understanding the financials involve to convince people.

 

I think blind belief and attacking and ridiculing anyone that questions this or throws doubt on the proposal is a problem.
