Discussion of suggested merge os "Mount gambier golf club" with "Mount Gambier, South Australia"[edit]

Hi there, I have recently created the "Mount gambier golf club" page in wikipedia, and am quite new to wikipedia itself.

I initially had two objectives in creating the page. 1. to allow a wikipedia link in google earth 2. to help add information to the (sub)category of "golf courses in australia"

I plan to add more data specifically about the course - including links to pictures - in the weeks and months ahead.

I am happy to discuss further - and be guided by more experienced editors - but is it advisable to mark an entry / page about Mount Gambier itself with a category of golf?

Another thought, is that I'm not sure if it is possible to get more than one wikipedia "link" per page. Is this possible ?

I am also happy to add / remove categories to make sure that the great work on the Mount Gambier page is referenced "usefully".

Most probably it was removed for being unmaintainable.--cj | talk 14:41, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Sports Person[edit]

There should be a section featuring the town's sports people who have gone on to succeed on a grand scale. The obvious one that I have in mind is Angela Beer who was the nation's number 1 Monopoly Player, taking out several titles and representing Australia in international tournaments.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 203.169.21.105 (talkcontribs) 14:14, 20 April 2007 (ACST).

pffft, like that is really a huge feature of mt gambier. yes, angela beer was a monopoly champ. It was in 1996. 12 years ago. Move on already. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.17.67.189 (talk) 12:52, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Distances?[edit]

To those of us not familiar with local road conditions, "approximately a five-hour drive" isn't that helpful. Could someone please insert km figures too? 86.136.250.66 (talk) 19:26, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Second largest city ?[edit]

I was under the understanding that Mount Barker, South Australia was bigger in terms population ?

Assuming that Mount Barker is classed as a metropolitan city, then perhaps the article should state that Mount Gambier is the largest regional city. THoughts ? Biatch (talk) 00:30, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
