LKCC is a private club and as a consequence hard to get into to have a round. I was lucky enough to have a mate who is a member and wants me to join. But with a nomination fee of $7k and yearly subs of around $3.5k it is a tough ask, hence the low value rating. But it is more than just a golf course, there are tennis courts, conference rooms, lockers, etc etc. The full country club offerings are on display here and you really do feel special being there. I didn’t want to leave!
Fairways and bunkers were in top condition although there were 2 instances of a bunker in the middle of the fairway, which I think is against the nature of golf. Rough was tough but not a “hit a provisional” prospect.
In summary, if you can get in for a round, it is definitely worth it. Apparently guests are charged $2 to play, but I suspect a member only has a certain number of guest passes.
The course in general. The 8th is a great little par 3 and the 2nd is a challenging par 5 that always has a Kangaroo or two to cheer you on.
Joining fees. Hard for the public to have a round.
