I won a 27 hole event there a few years ago ….. a very nice course.

 

Sam Newman played in the event, as did Grant Thomas, oh, and Kiwi, so they'll let anyone on the course. ;)

only played 1 or 2 games in my life there, hardly know the track at all 

 

i can tell you this

 

The last greenkeeper left the course in good  nick , the greens  are running good at the moment as they have just finished there club championships there..  

 

I know you wont have alot of staff working under you, currently its only 1  man looking after the course since the last greenkeeper left.. so if you choose to apply  it will just be you and that 1 bloke...

 

anyway good luck

 

cheers

It was 6 degrees in Melbourne yesterday so fark knows what it was in Bachus Marsh.
It’s a nice Country Course though and beautiful from September to May like most of Southern Victoria. 😀

No, it's on the wrong side of town.

I did make the trip out there a few years ago at Oz' invitation. It was drize-a-bone and didn't impress me, but nevertheless quite playable.

A little bit disappointed in the response from one poster here.

He knows the position.

 

But obviously, he doesn't care about yours.

Its always been a club that struggled with water. but its always focussed correctly. i.e. it doesnt waste funds on bunkers when it needs to protect greens.

 

nice part of melbourne.

and if you're into dirt bikes its excellent.

 

Havent played the course in 5 years.

you'd think people would be more helpful to someone looking at a job. the world has changed.

Hi vinum
Thanks for your positive feedback. I guess I can only ask and gleam what info I can from the responses.

I’ll figure it out and even ring and ask the club itself if I need too. Thanks again

i gather your dissapointment towards me.

 

Vinum Coupe  We have not Struggled with water at all,  we have a huge dam as well as bore water , So i dont exactly know where your getting your information from, considering you havent played there for 5 years, doesnt make your information correct.

 

Have you given a thought... That i might keep out of Bacchus Marsh Golf club political and financial side of things, i have an idea yes, but i am not going to give my thoughts on that for the reason if i give bluethunda my thoughts and views, and My club loses a good greenkeeper during the application process and i have my information wrong that is not fair for both bacchus marsh golf club as well as Bluethunda .
