    Some great banter on Richmond Vs Bulldogs.

    Appreciate the information on AFL tickets. Talking with some the people we are playing with, there has been a fwe offers of getting us tickets in the members reserve section. Wondering would some "americans" sitting in the members section be an issue? Want to enjoy it all to the fullest but also dont want to have "issues". Can see it now they loose and we get blamed LOL

    Great pre-game aspects noted..! Looked up the Royal Hotel, found two... I assume based on location the one on Punt Street. the one on Bourke Street looks good too but yes Punt street looks much better

    The trip being set for the most part, we have been trying to research some good locations for food and drinks in CBD area. Our accomodations have us right between MCG and CBD (SE) area. 8-10 min walk to either. 15 mins to the Royal for note LOL. Probably not the best location for driving down to sand belt area but something has to give...

And again if time permits, if you want something very Australian and golf related, Ratho Farm is the oldest course in Aus and quirky as hell. Drive time from Hobart to Barny is about 3-4 hours. Althought a trip via the east coast is pretty scenic.

    Also, go to the Tigs Dogs game at the MCG. Go have a feed and beer in a Richmond pub and then walk to the ground. May I suggest the Royal hotel.....

    @Parkroyal correct,direct into Hobart. We land around 11ish that Sunday. Currently we have no plans on playing around Hobart though we have the time and have discussed it. The drive I recall to barnbougle is around 3 hours and not in a rush as it is a travel day on our diary.

    There would be no issues whatsoever and you would likely be welcomed by all around you to make sure you are having a good time at the game.

    Maybe steer clear of the Grog Squad (apart from your visit to the Royal), but yeah as Bruce said you'd be more than welcome.


    Hobart and Tasmania has plenty of options for non golfers to enjoy. Nice places to eat and drink, Mona is always a good visit and if its a good day a trip up the mountain is worth it.

    I was asked an interesting question today by one the other members on the golf trip.

    He owns as MGI Zip Navigator and was wondeirng if there is a place to rent those or something similar while in Melbourne? I use an Alphard V2 on my Clickgear 3.5. I was thinking of using a normal buggy for the rounds but now wondeirng if there are places that rent them? Do courses rent them? Probably not searching right but I could not find anywhere that does rent them for a short period?

    75% of golfers take carts over here........which can make for long rounds as they drive back and forth to each ball and watch each other hit

    Some clubs do maintain a few units like Navigators to be hired similar to hiring a cart for a round. (eg mine)

    I haven't heard of anywhere that hires them away from a club and I recently tried to find that - my google fu is usually pretty strong but I couldn't crack that nut.

    Almost all clubs will have pull/push buggies for free/hire per round

    Hopefully they give them a buggy, nothing like being in the UK, shelling out 300 quid for a round and then the pro shop wants another fiver for a wonky old buggy that's been in service since WW2.

    Apart from Vic, which I'm not sure CDM is playing, the rest of the sand belt is pretty flat.........well compared to Sydney anyway.

    Thank you for the quick replies. I could not find any that had rentals either. I thought maybe some small local shops would or something. Our plan is to just use standard buggies but figured would check.

    Currently playing RM, Heath, Metro and PK. We have an open day and could play National in the morning but we figured take a down day, relax and maybe see what the hype is all about at the Royal Hotel then take in our first AFL game.

    Thats a great set of courses. Play PK North if they give u the chance…its better than the south (which is very good). The jet lag will wack you so a no golf day is recommended! A day at the footy (MCG) will be a memorable experience. The noise when 70000+ are in will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. You should read up on some of the rules of AFL or you will have as much Idea as an Australian at an NFL match!

    it is somewhat LH as the green approaches give a bounce right toward the deep evil little bunker! The green runs away from the front left to the back right so any shot (even with a SW will tend to kick forward somewhat). Great little hole…one of my favourites there!
