PK. It’s pretty good. Overrated a lot though. Some really good holes, but some pretty average ones here and there too. North course is best.
I've only played the north but reckon it's a beauty. It's a great complex, another club it would be great to be a member of if one had the time.

I threw my membership in there. Was a member for about 18 months after Kingswood merged with Peninsula to form PK. It was too far to travel. Monash and Peninsula Link was just brutal. Was taking 75 mins+ to get there after work.

They've spent a lot of money.

It's good, but nowhere near a RM or KH or Metro standard. The North has some good holes (1st, 2nd, 8th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th,18th) but some average ones as well (12th is rubbish, 15th and 16th bland, approach to 17th is all wrong and 3rd and 5th have always looked like they've been squashed in.)

They could probably come up with a decent composite course however.

Nice fella. Sounds like he hitched up the plough onto the tractor, and drove down the road to the local golf course just for something to do.

Given that for a lot of small towns, the local sports clubs are an integral central anchor point for the grass roots fabric of their community. This bloke would have to be the most hated person in town at present. Could have murdered someone and copped less flack. What a dick!

Just finished the North course at PK , good track, however no way is that in the best 5 in Australia, typical money talks rating , course was in great nick , imho lots of 7.5 out of 10 holes , but not a lot of breathtaking ones , greens a massive with so many pin options. Certainly is nothing like the old “club” of Kingswood

That's pretty much it: overrated. Not even sure it makes top 30.
