Played this course on 26/01/12 and was surprised which how much it has improved. Clayton has done a great job! Still not a long course which suits the oldies, but the new greens can be brutal if you don’t put the ball in the right spot. Fairways are good but some earth works in progress to improve drainage (doesnt really get in your way though). Some great holes to look for are the 8th, 10th 15th and 18th.

PROS

  • Great greens

Cons

  • $52 guest rate
  • No practice fairway

The perfect course for its location.
A quirky mix of fun, challenge and playability over a variety of holes.
6 par 3’s, two testing 4.5 par holes and a mix of short and medium par 4s.
I hit every club in my bag, some by choice off the tee.
I was skeptical of its recent rating as the 53rd best course in the country, but after playing it I am absolutely impressed and would play it again in a heartbeat.
A short course that has width, provides options, rewards bravado and smart strategic play, plus it has some of the most brilliant greens in the country.
This is an absolute must play.

And then there is the short course. 4 more cracking little holes including a Biarritz green.

PROS

  • Fun
  • Challenging
  • Playable
  • Stategic
  • Wicked Greens

Cons

  • Private club open to members and resort guests.
  • Drainage appears to be an issue

Reminded me of a expensive bottle of wine, high expectations, but disappointed with end result.
Greens were cored and fairways flooded after heavy rains in Melbourne, green fees were $50.
Some of the greens are just ridiculous, although they look, there are too many undulating greens. Get used to the 3 putt.

8th,15th and 16th holes I think are the best holes, with forgiving greens.

PROS

  • great club house
  • fantastic looking course

Cons

  • over priced
  • too many undulating greens

Probably not as great as RACV Cape Schanck but still a fantastic course to have a round of golf at. Some interesting holes including the 4th hole downhill Par 3, the criss-cross 5th and 7th holes, and a signature 18th hole that is incredibly difficult to birdie.

Nice country vibe to the course with excellent clubhouse facilities. The bouncy mat is a lot of fun too.

PROS

  • Nice greens
  • Great clubhouse

Cons

  • Won't challenge your long irons
