Morning All, 

 

I am about to move to Melbourne in 2021, I love my golf and play at least three times per week.  I regularly play Lakelands and the Glades on the Gold Coast and Pacific in Brisbane (I'm sure some of you would have visited and played one or more of those courses), I would like to find a course or courses in Melbourne I can join/play regularly, that offer fairly wide fairways, motorised carts and are reasonably priced, I also prefer softer greens.  I'm 50 and my handicap is 3-4 on average over the course of the year. 

 

Any advice on your local courses would be greatly appreciated, plus I would like to meet some people to make up a foursome weekly.

The wide fairways of the "sandbelt" clubs won't align with your other needs - these courses usually play on the faster/harder side condition wise, and generally you need a medical certificate to play in a cart for competitions. They are also at the higher end of the market price wise.
Location matters as well in terms of where you will be living of course.
