Managed to get myself a game on the friendliest course in town this Sunday.  Have never played there though it is super local to me so looking forward to checking it out.  Got in on the January special which, amazingly enough, allows me to play in the comps.

Deege, it's a real pity that the friendliest club has one of the most ordinary courses in the SE ! You can let us know how you went Monday ?

It might be just 'ordinary' compared to the great tier one courses, but it holds its own against the rest of the ordinary courses.

Rossdale is a good course to play, an order of magnitude better than the nearby Chelsea (is that its current name?) on Edithvale Rd. If I was in that area, I'd much rather play Rossdale, assuming it's price competitive.

 

Just picking back up on this to comment on something I noted on the read through but didn't comment on at the time.  Edithvale golf course seems to me to be doing pretty well for itself.   I have never played it but it looks to be a typical public course in terms of design and amenity, though seems to be kept in pretty good nick.  It is high profile in terms of being visible from the street, and seems to be very well patronised.  Relaxed dress code and I see lots of young people and families playing there all the time.  I would have thought that those people who play that course are Rossdale's target audience - people that live locally and want to have a round of golf.

 

Rossdale seems to have dramatically improved its local signage and community engagement (letter box drops etc) in the last 12 months or so, but the number of cars in the carpark when I swung by there on the Saturday before Christmas suggests that they aren't cutting through with getting people onto the course.

Well it is telling I guess that I have lived within a km of the place for 2.5 years and have never played there.  I picked up the January special because I thought I might have a few extra golf days in Jan, but unless the pass gets a good use over the Australia Day long weekend, then I will have donated most of the cost to the "save Rossdale" fund, which I am fine with.

 

Will report on my impression of the course (and the pies) after the weekend.

I’m sure it’s better than Warragul and no doubt friendlier.
