Only got 10 holes in at Cape Schanck before the storm hit. 10 over which included a 7 on a par 3

Will be playing Portsea, St Andrews Beach and The Dunes and maybe one of the Moonah courses over the next few days and will try and play the course i like the best Friday.

Which is the easier course to play in the strong wind that is likely to occur tomorrow?
I heard the dunes is more exposed and open with wide fairways.

have you played st andrews before? Its a tough track. Up and down. But a great course.

First time playing golf down here, weather looks good for the rest of the week so thought i would try and play some of the tougher tracks later in the week.

Tough tracks don't bother me, just prefer it not to be unplayable if it is a strong wind tomorrow

Is the national as amazing as what I’ve heard it is?
Been there twice and been to the Long Island course once and I can say within the next few years it would be a dream of mine to become a member there. Facilities are amazing and well the courses are just pure. Four world class courses and some of the views you get when playing the old course are just beautiful. You become a tourist for half of your round taking pics and soaking in the sights. I envy peternorth playing there regularly haha

Not entirely sure lOng island is world class. But it’s very underrated.


Thing about Nash is tha5 you’re far removed from traffic etc. It’s just you, the course and wildlife. It’s freakin’ da best

Long Island has amazing "bones" as a golf course and could be genuinely terrific if the club ever took it seriously and spent some of their millions on it including a Brian Schneider renovation.

However it doesn't fit their strategic money hungry plan to shaft the joint off for housing in a few years so they'll keep doing the bare minimum with it.

Always on the lookout for opportunities

115 at Portsea today. First time ever playing a full 18 holes, really happy with the score, did all that without a driver but starting to get more confident with the 3 wood building up to it. Absolutely knackered by the end pushing the buggy around those hills and it was very windy which made it tough.

All parts of the game had their moments. Score was lost mostly on too many 3 putts, and 3 separate putts that lipped out on different holes. Managed to avoid bunkers except for the second last hole, pretty happy with that. Did lose a few shots because I had to take a penalty and hit a second tee shot as I sliced a few into some of the bushland that was no chance of being found.

I've never played a course with so much height and slope variance, I found it really challenging hitting up to or down onto greens so club selection was a battle all day.

If I take today's form back to my regular public locals I shoot under 100 easily I reckon.

Anyone ever played Mt.Xavier?
I played there 2 weeks ago as it is near my daughters school and wow what a beautiful unique course.
Bloody tough walk though!
As in the Ballarat course? I haven’t played it in years and years. It wasn’t much chop from memory but would be keen to check it out if I am back that way, although Ballarat is hard to say no to.
