    Default South East Weekender May 22,23,24

    After many discussions after games that we should do a South East Weekender we now have our first one planned.

    It can be either a 2 day trip or a 3 day trip depending on if you can get the Friday off work.

    Dates are for May Friday 22nd, Saturday the 23rd and Sunday 24th.

    We are looking to stay in or near to Millicent.
    Everyone to arrange their own accommodation.
    Get in early and check with TC as he has something arranged with limited spare rooms.

    The Courses and Format
    Day 1_Friday May 22nd
    • Drive to and play Lucindale. Aim for hit off say around 12-12:30. Can finalise this time closer to date.
    • Drive to accommodation in/near Millicent
    Day 2_Saturday May 23rd
    • Play Millicent. If some are making it a 2 day trip we will play in the afternoon otherwise we might go for a morning time. Can also finalise this closer to date.
    Day 3_Sunday May 24th
    • Drive to and play Robe most likely mid to late morning.
    • Head home after game
    The List of who's going & how many Days:
    1. 3 days_Hatch - locked in
    2. 3 days_Thecollective - Dark pencil
    3. 3 days_Wazamac - Dark pencil
    4. 3 days_Hardpan - Dark pencil

    5. 2 days_Nadg - light pencil?

    As this is purposed for a Golf weekend away a little more planning is required so I'll get the ball rolling.

    Much discussion has been had about doing a SAOzgolf weekend away down the South East.
    Lets get the ball rolling in locking down weekend in either May or June.
    With more courses than days available on weekend there's a number of ways of doing this depending on how everyone feels.

    Here's a couple ideas to think about if you think we could either handle 3 rounds or only 2.
    I don't think travel and playing 2 course on the same day works unless your in carts for 1 or both rounds.

    3 Day Trip_Fri-Sat-Sun. 3 rounds or Golf
    Day 1. Travel from Adelaide to XX on Friday afternoon to accommodation near Course 1.
    Day 2. Play Course 1 on a Saturday morning then drive to another and play Course 2 in the afternoon. Preferably Course 2 has Saturday nights accommodation near by or is still close enough to first nights stay.
    Day 3. Travel to Course 3 Sunday morning, play round then travel home.

    3 Day Trip_Fri-Sat-Sun. 3 rounds of Golf
    Day 1. Travel from Adelaide to XX Friday morning and Play Course 1. Travel to the nights accommodation after game.
    Day 2. Play Course 2 either morning or afternoon depending on where accommodation is either night 1 or 2
    Day 3. Play Course 3 then travel home.

    3 Day Trip_Fri-Sat-Sun. 2 rounds or Golf
    Day 1. Travel from Adelaide to XX on Friday afternoon to accommodation.
    Day 2. Play Course 1 Saturday morning/afternoon depending on where we stay then go to Saturday nights accommodation.
    Day 3. Play Course 2 on Sunday then drive home.

    2 Day Trip_ Sat-Sun. 2 rounds of Golf
    Day 1. Travel from Adelaide to Course 1, play round then on to accommodation.
    Day 2. Play Course 2 then travel home.

    From someone who's done quite a few self drive Golf Trips over the years its normally best to travel to one in the middle or furtherest from home leaving the shortest drive for the one closest to home on the last day.

    Happy with 3 days as long as I get to spoon TC one night.
    Once you go yellow, you will never go back

    Robe - Millicent - Lucindale - Bordertown

    Lucindale looks to have cheap accom near the course (for those that are on a budget)
    • The Lucindale Hotel offers basic accommodation. Ph 08 8766 2223
    • Hammersmith Apartments are central in the town Ph: 08 8766 2118 Mob: 0438 874 988
    • Park Drive Cottage in the town. B&B available Mob:0407 390 855
    • ‘Holmwood’ is hosted B&B accommodation at Avenue Range 19km west of Lucindale. Mob: 0418 853 635
    • Andinda Cottages & CabinsMob: 0429 861 551
    • Lucindale Country Club Camping Ground offers powered and un-powered sites, hot showers and toilets. Ph 08 87667028
    For me Gambie is a little too far, plus I would be too tempted to shoot through to Fairy

    If we are pressed for time leave out Bordertown and save it for a future Nhill / pinball / Keith trip

    I'm also happy with a 3 day trip, minus the spoon with TC (sorry mate, not my type). I am partial to a good beard though.

    Not sure about 2 rounds in the one day, but happy to give it a crack. Just knowing how I felt after 18 at Blackwood I dare say my game would revert to shank city on the 2nd round... hmm, thinking about that, it really won't be much different to round 1 anyway!

    RE courses I'm happy to be a sheep and follow the crowd. Being such a beginner I'm just keen to play as many different types as possible.

    For 3 day trip my preferred would be Lucindale, Millicent, Robe

    Friday: Travel from Adelaide to Lucindale (3hrs 44m - 343km)
    Play Lucindale then travel on to Millicent to stay (54min - 82km)

    Saturday: Play Millicent then either stay in Millicent the second night or travel to Robe (51min -78km) and stay there Saturday night

    Sunday: Play Robe then travel home (3hrs 35min - 336km)

    Seeing TC's post above basing ourselves at Lucindale for the 2 nights might be a good option rather than staying in Millicent.
    Lucindale to Robe is only (50min - 79km)

    Two days of golf would be my knee limit I reckon! On a Friday I finish work at 2pm so could head up mid-afternoon and meet you guys up there if you travel for a game on the Friday.

    I reckon we play Lucindale Friday arvo

    Stay overnight in Millicent - plenty of good/cheap accommodation options

    Millicent GC - local comp Sat morning, Sat arvo either a 9 hole bash (back 9 is better from memory) or get hammered^ in the clubhouse with the locals (^beer, not ram ranch)

    overnight again in Millicent

    Robe GC

    Potentially then a quickie* (*golf, no homo sexytime) round either Keith or Bordertown if time and daylight permits

    Might be too much travelling around to fit Keith and Bordertown in I think.
    Save that for another 3 day another day.
    Keith on Friday on way up then on to Nhill. Stay there 2 nights for the Pinball and play Nhill Saturday. Bordertown on way home

    I will therefore let you arrange your own accommodation then...

    Ok, who else is in? I have a car with a spare seat or two and a house with a couple of spare bedrooms for rent/share

    all good, we can put you in pencil, Millicent has plenty of accommodation options so you should have no problem securing a place to stay closer to the date

    There might not be as many close to date as we think. The Minister has already been looking at accommodation in May / June. Having said that there may be plenty but not many to her majesties standard. I just need a bed to sleep in I don't give a crap about everything else it has or doesn't have that we never use any way .

    So everyone can plan and book any accommodation in plenty of time we shall now lock it in for May 22,23,24.
    I will edit the title and the first post to reflect this. Sh!t just got real.

    It'll take an heroic effort for me to get a leave pass for this, but I'll give it a go. If you don't hear from me in the next few days, it was nice knowing you all.

    I think Higher...cough cough...combe uses the word Country Club to describe themselves. Just sayin.



    I've played Lucindale years ago. Shouldn't really mention the other place in the same breath.
