    Default Private Golf Memberships

    Hi all,

    I am looking at joining a private golf course as playing at Yarra Bend Golf currently is taking far too long. I'm based in Fitzroy North and love the proximity to the golf course but rounds take forever. Mrs. has come around to letting me look at membership options

    I've looked at

    Rosanna golf club
    Joining Fee: $1430 (reduced by 50%)
    Introductory membership one time offer for 12 months: $225 pcm which reverts to $280 per month after 12 months.

    Northern Golf club

    Joining Fee: Under review. Would be great if this is waived
    5 day membership: $1989 per year

    Greenacres Golf Club (most likely not for me)

    Joining fee: $6495

    6 day membership: $3057

    Would love some suggestions for courses within 20-30 min drive time for me from Fitzroy North..

    thanks so much in advance,
    Rahul

    Rahul: Northern GC is a great club, my pick out the above options. Solid course in good condition

    Rosanna has a better layout but the vibe is not as good as Northern.

    Biggest mistake I made is not joining Northern when I lived in Melbourne. Stuffed around at Heidelberg instead
    good, different

    Give the courses a ring and ask if you can get a booking for a group or your footy teammates.

    If they dont hangup, dont join.

    Check out Latrobe - they have a pretty good intro deal for $850. Not far from Fitzroy.

    Around a grand seems reasonable, anything more would wanna be swallowing as well.
