That's one of the great things about living in Australia. Potentially you can play golf 365 days a year. Yea baby!!
I always wanted to visit Australia as a young man, but never did. My sister moved to Sydney and married an Aussie. I can remember phoning there on christmas day when it was -35 C here and plus 35 C  there, and wishing i had moved there. I do remember them moving north of Sydney and having a 2 hr each way commute, housing was expensive and day to day bills seemed high. I joked that with her nursing and his banking job that they could move home and live like kings. They said no way to cold, well a few yrs later they are living here and doing well. The golf 365 sounds pretty good vs our 165 golfing days.  Damn i should have moved. lol

Yes Sydney is expensive. Highest house prices in the country. There are a lot of places cheaper to live and lots of courses too. Traditionally we have clubs with established memberships in all areas and cost wise you can be a member of a pretty good course for a reasonable amount. It is not an elitist sport here.
We therefore play in a lot of club comps, under R&A rules and our rounds are logged for handicapping by a national body. It's a good system and we play competitive golf by the rule book in a monitored pace of play. So it is not just the weather. We have great courses and a club system with uniform handicapping that is great for becoming an established club player.
Sounds like a very golf friendly country. Obviously you have taken advantage of the fine weather and system to get your handicap at a level not duplicated by the masses. Iv'e taken a liking to the Tams but will hold off on the Vegemite.

Magpies - try to source a set of the 2010 or 2011 v-forged, tour or non tour. The 2012 look great but I've never tried them.....yet.
Awesome clubs and probably still my favourite JDM manufacturer.

Funny reading this thread about Yamaha iron.  They were awesome and they weren't cheap.  Comparable to PXG prices now back then...

Yamaha and another iron called Diawa I think?  They were graphite shafted.

Daiwa is now under the umbrella of Globeride, which also has the golf brands OnOff, Fourteen and Roddio.  Daiwa is fishing gear now, no golf.

Nice.  I remember an old man at my club had a full set of graphite Diawa irons back in the mid 80's.  They were so expensive.  Way more expensive than current value PXG's.  They felt so soft.  Just like butter.

I thought Endo was still forging Yamaha Irons?  I'm totally sold on their forgings after acquiring my 2015 OnOff Kuros a few years ago. The Yamaha's look very nice
and my club Ho craving will eventually have me buying a set.

Maybe?  I'd love a set.  I'd like to see the original "Hal Sutton" model he was playing back in the day.

That would be the SX-25. There's a single 5-iron and single 8-iron on eBay right now for ~ $20 if you want to stroll down memory lane...

Not selling.  I searched for years for a like new set after owning a few somewhat beat up sets of the SX25's.  Did you know Fourteen Golf actually designed the SX25's?

Didn't know that but totally believe it.  Thanks for sharing.  I wonder how much Hal Sutton worked with Yamaha or vice versa?  Back in the day when he was the man.

I was a junior golfer when Hal Sutton was playing Yamaha.  Watched him play in my hometown at the Pensacola Open.  Seems like Scott Simpson won with Yamaha irons as well.
