The Bundoora Golf Course has again controversially missed the list of the top 100 courses in Australia… for the 80th year in a row. The full extent of these regular omissions from the list was first brought to public attention two years ago, when local golfer Graeme Jensen spectacularly claimed that the judges hadn’t even been to Bundoora to view the facilities.
The official top 100 list, released annually by the Australian Golf Hackers Association (AGHA), holds strong grounding within the nation’s golfing community, but is now being challenged on the fact that the so-called “Royal Bundoora” continues to be ignored. Speaking again to The Watsonia Bugle, Jensen said, “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: when you apply the quality versus affordability equation to Bundoora it stands up very well. I’m laying down the challenge to any of them AGHA tosspots to come down for a round at Royal Bundoora. I’ll show them around, point out all of the deluxe features, and give them a bit of a history lesson. I just want them to give us a chance.”
At the time of writing, the AGHA was yet to respond to our calls.
