I was recently reading one of those "Top 100 golf courses in Australia" articles and it prompted me to think what iseekgolf readers think. Let's face it, those lists are put together by journos and pros who travel the countryside for a living and your average golfer will probably never get to played more than about 20 of them. What are the Top 5 courses you have played?
1. NSW
2. Newcastle
3. Royal Sydney
4. The Lakes
5. Mollymook

Resort
1. Joondalup
2. Hope Island
3. The Glades
4. Twin Waters
5. Coolum

Chevychase,

Is that list in order of merit, or no particular order?

1. Metropoliton
2. Knigston Heath
3. 13th Beach
4. The National Old
5. Murray Downs

Special mentions have to go to Capricorn International New, Huntingdale, Yarrawongas Murray Course and Southern, any of which could have been in the top 4 or 5. Also Riversdale and Woodlands are great. The Moonah Course at the National is also a great track but the day I played there it beat the crap out of me so I will reserve judgement for another day.

Having been am still am a golfing nomad. The better golf courses I've played would have to be in (no particular order):
*Coolum
*Pacific (Blue Marker Challenge)
*Royal Pines East
*Kooralbyn Valley
*Tweed Heads( both Courses)

Caloundra and Noosa Tewantin would rate a high mention for the good condition that they are in and the challenge they offer.
Also of the resort courses I have played I would rank Pelican Waters as one of the better value in service. The free souveniers, facilities and service were good in comparison to the others courses I have sampled. I donated a lot of balls to the golf gods on the way round, and hey it encouraged me to get lessons. :oops: 8O
