    Default Champs in Sydney

    Could it happen? Would certainly attract a few different faces.

    Thoughts?

    Not in the next year, Jaybam, no.

    I was just wondering if it could work.

    And Grunt, obviously you've forgotten our two-group day at Cabra though that did include Miro and my mate Brad who doesn't post here...

    I was just wondering if it would travel well, ie. if those who go would follow it elsewhere and make a weekend away out of it.

    I'd certainly make the effort to travel south for it.

    It's the least i could do after all you good folk down south have made the effort to come up here for the past 5 years

    As long as we're NOT playing MacGrange though

    Is the biggest NSW OZgolf day still from the Newcastle/Magenta Shores weekend when myself and a few of the lads travelled down?

    That must explain all the bumper midweek games you've been turning people away from since November...

    I've never been to the champs, but I would suggest the biggest issue is cost. Up in Queensland you can play a reasonable course, plus a few either side of the main event, & feel as though you got value for money. The cost doesn't take anything away from the enjoyment of spending time with a great bunch.

    The few worthwhile venues that could host a weekend event in Sydney would be extremely expensive & probably not offer a lot of freedom.

    Another thing is I doubt we could ever get a game on a Saturday here in Sydney for 30+ players before 2pm.

    Very good points. Accom would be pretty expensive also, I guess.

    I don't care if we have the Champs on the Moon, I will be there
    Seriously though I would not mind at all if we had it somewhere down South, N.S.W or Vic.

    Have to say there are not too many places other than the resort courses that can accommodate us as easily as they do.

    If we join in with an existing 36 hole open event, not a problem.

    There is room for 20 at the motel next to the first tee at Mirboo North.

    Newcastle could easily host 18 holes in our Sunday comp, & it would be off the normal tees so there would be no cry babies whinging about 13's.

    The Saturday event could be played at Magenta Shores.

    The Queenslanders could then drive home having a golfing road trip playing Bonville & Ocean Shores on the way home.
