    Default 2023 VIC Champs - TBD

    Alright, time to get serious about this shit again. I know Victoria feels like its own country these days, but if we can travel internationally by July, surely we can get in and out of Victoria in Feb 2023. Double / Triple / Quadruple / Boosted Vax will be a requirement, lets get that shit out of the way first.

    So just as a discussion point on that, I'm in two minds. The full shebang as previously discussed (if the proposed clubs are amenable to it), the big one with 2 x Peninsula-Kingswood (North and South) and another premo sandbelt for the Friday like Yarra Yarra, Cranbourne GC on the Thursday or Monday and a cheap and cheerful track for the other Thursday or Monday. This'll be a costly exercise with the trip being around $1200 from whoa to go. Then peple obviously have their flights, meals, drinks, hire cars etc on top of that.

    Another option is to save that for the 10th instalment as a big hoopla, and find somewhere cheaper in between, like a trip up to the Murray River (probably Echuca-Moama and the Rich River Resort). Have done a small amount of research on this and I feel like we could play 5 days on the Murray for around the $600-700 mark. That way if something goes horribly wrong and for some reason we can't get back deposits / full payments etc people haven't outlaid a metric ****tonne of cash.

    Or we can look at a third option with trying to get Pen North or South for the Uncivil War Friday this year, then do the other next year, with a return to possibly the Mornington to replay StAB, The Dunes, maybe Moonah Legends, Portsea, try our hardest to get onto Sorrento, something like that.

    Just a discussion point, but obviously the sooner we make our minds up the sooner people can start saving the required amounts of cash, and we can more easily make bookings.

    I know some of you will say "in for whatever" (and the first one that does I'm charging them double), but please don't as it doesn't help in making a committed decision. That's MY protocol. I genuinely would like people to state what they want from those three options.

    Have at it ladies and gents, and you can officially get excited again.

    ALL TBD

    As a defender of HMB, not sure that's a glowing endorsement.

    Heads up mate, things get a bit loose at these on account of all the non South Australians and their inappropriate behaviour.

    That's OK, I'm a Queenslander again now, or at least will be by then.

    I wouldn't describe myself as a defender as such. I just think that the whining about the joint is a bit of over the top. 😁 It is what it is.

    I found nothing annoying about Eagle Ridge, and it was quite fun.

    I will have scraped enough brownie points for 5 days on the Muarry if that was the option. Only took 5 years. Best trip in Australian social golf for sure !

    Can you scrape any more brownie points for a Rub 'n' Tug?

    Tell her you’re going there and miss the turn.

    You are doing it wrong if you have to earn brownie points. Instead tell her you are taking her on a holiday, and while there you are playing golf too and she can do whatever she wants.

    Ah I'm giving her a bad wrap here, plenty of notice and I'll be right. It was 2016 when I went on my one and only OZG trip, the years can really catch up on us

    I voted for the Murray River option, not for cost reasons, but just to get things going again. The country Champs in SW Vic was great fun, and this could have a similar vibe. I'd also rather not play repeat courses which would be the case for me with St Andrew's Beach, The Dunes, and Portsea.

    I could do without playing Portsea again. Dunes and StAB I'd happily play again.

    Agree. The 2 trips where we stayed at school camps were perfect. We didn’t have to worry about noise and for those that wanted to go to bed, they could. Why you would go to bed early though, I wouldn’t know. You would have to ask Wayne.

    That joint that had the dive pool where we almost left Lucas was sweet.
