PostSubject: National Day (8-12 Aug) Golf in Perth or Melbourne   Fri Jun 29, 2012 8:27 pm

Hi Kakis, I am planning to go for a social golf holiday (flying off on 8th evening) and returning on the 12th, so only 1 day leave (10th) required. Its a simple golf holiday, stay in motel, eat good food, some wine, rent a car, drive and golf...social golf ok, I am not a good player but I play decent - high 80s - 90s.

Also, we may only play one of the Singaporean courses (dont know which one yet - Joondulap, Meadow view, Vines...etc) as its too expensive - meant for Singaporeans Smile We will play the local courses.

If you are interested PM me and I will let you know more details. As for Perth or Melbourne, cost is only a couple of hundred different so I leave it to a democratic vote... Smile

Bro, Thx. They look really good. I will be playing with a Singaporean local there, the former marshall of Seletar Base, Robert Fong. Also, the last time we played, we just turn on the GPS when we reach there, take a quick browse at the internet, then give a call to check for slot and off we go...free and easy...

For nostalgia sake, you might want to do a round at Burswood before they tear down 9 holes to make way for a football stadium. Green fees on weekdays only AUD25.

Have fun!

Bro, thanks for the info. I have played a number of links both in UK, especially Scotland and also some in Melbourne area. This is one of the more expensive course by Aussie stds.
