    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 curry was ok, didn’t live up to the hype. No where near as good as my local pick Beyond India

    The padthaway grown local red is going down like a treat

    Social distancing might be a good idea tomorrow morning

    Millicent cont.


    Don’t use a coloured ball and flush your drive down the middle. A big black bird will come down and take it.
    The view in the above pic is from the top of the hill 20-30m forward of where we could drive it to into the wind.

    Home stretch. Blast one over the hill onto the next hill to hopefully leave you 150m in.

    Good to finish on that hole after playing the previous 3 holes.

    A re-design of this stretch plus a good chainsaw in a few areas could see the course featuring in rankings again

    Next up we have Beachport.
    Short dead flat and I mean dead flat 9 holes with same tee block both times around. Very wide fairways that tempt jumping all over the Driver. Small push up greens and strong winds off the sea add some challenge to what looks to be a simple course at first glance. The road through the course with 2 par 5’s running up either side raises the eyebrow.

    And standing up wind might be wise.

    View off the 1st Tee. Massive wide fairway, how can you miss?
    Quite easy when it’s straight into strong head wind.


    Again another very wide fairway and a ton of bail out room onto the cricket oval on the left. Short at a bit over 300m tempts trying to smash it beyond ones abilities.

    I’ve now reached the cap on pics for the month on Tap Talk. I refuse to pay for the VIP version so the remainder of pics will go up next month.

    Day 3 at Robe now done.
    The 6 new holes are spectacular and well worth the trip.
    Unfortunately we got the worst of the rain over the 3 days today. What made it worse was it was umbrella up, umbrella down rinse and repeat all day from start to finish with close to 50% of the day being wet.

    What a contrast in holes from the front 6, middle 6 and last 6.
    The last 6 is nothing like the front 12 and it’s like you’ve driven to another course to play a flat relatively easy course.
    I’ve got a mountain of pics to put in here eventually.

    Are those flat 6 on the land furthest from the coast? (I recall these being the holes you played twice to make up the 18 )

    Yes they are the ones in front of the Golf Club and furtherest from the coast. The last is a good finishing hole but the rest are boring.

    Couple of choices here.
    Try play the hole normal or go for extra length by pinging one off the road.
    Result was one lefty blocking safe to center of fairway and 2 righties hitting it straight into the tree not passing the Reds. Road was successfully hit with the third shot.

    Bit of a climb to the next hole. Once there the view is amazing.

    This short par 4 is no easy push over. If getting one in play off the tee and a pitch to a blind pin on an elevated green is hard enough your faced with a very tricky green you’ll struggle to find a straight putt on.
    I made a great dirty birdie here for the only bogey this 6 after blocking the tee shot into lost ball territory.

    Sorry, authentic Italian does not come from packet Gnocchi and Ravioli. Very average at best. Disappointing.
    Should have gone to Ginos down the road.
    Gino's had great looking girl. MMMMMMM
    Didn't know what a good pizza was though if it bit her on the arse.
    I can second the indian. Best i have had in a long time.

    Robe middle 6 cont.




    Up on the Tee Block there was much debate if the bunkers were reachable on the right. We played it in a slightly down and across wind adding to the uncertainty. Like most holes on the course its a long walk to the Tee block from where our bags were left so grabbing the Range Finder quickly was out of the question. Hard_Pan and TC went first and went hard left into not so great position. I stripped one that went straight at the traps and came up well short. Only the serious bombers knocking them out 270-280m+ off the back tees where we were will be troubled.



    Very hard to find a straight putt on this green and not easy to lag one close from range due to all the roller coaster ride the ball has to take. I was Pin high just off 12-14 feet away and was absolutely stoked to get the ball inside 2 foot. Wasn't feeling confident I wouldn't drop a shot from that position.
