Great Ocean Road
Cobden Golf Club
9 Holes
PAR 70
5396 M


Widely regarded as one of the hidden gems along the Great Ocean Road with pristine santa-ana fairways and bent grass greens.

Until recently the course laid claim to the best 9 hole course in the region, that was until the progressive club purchased more land and set about a transition to a full 18 hole layout.

At present, there are 14 holes in play, with the design and early stages of construction taking place to bring the plans to fruition.

The course is not long in length but the fairways are narrow and tree lined with the greens guarded by strategic second cuts and sand filled bunkers.

One must truly grasp the concept of course management if they wish to score well at Cobden.

This 12-hole course established in 1908 measures 3789m Par 48 with two par 3s ranging from 140-163m, eight par 4s ranging from 291-357m and two par 5s ranging from 435-470m. To play 18 holes, you play the first 6 holes again (measures 5577m Par 71). The fairways are lush green couch whilst the greens although quick are dormant-like yellowish/brown couch. The teebeds are lush and flat. The greens here are good, large sized and slightly undulating. There are 7 well-sized bunkers with good sand coverage. The Cobden Creek is a natural waterway with mown steep banks which flows through town and across 5 holes on the course. Most holes are tree-lined with wide fairways. Good holes include: * 319m slight dogleg right 1st with its large double green with the 8th bunkered left and right. * 140m 7th with a teeshot over the Cobden Creek to a green protected by bunkers shortside left and right. * 325m slight dogleg left 8th with a teeshot across Cobden Creek with tall trees alogn the left to the wide double green 1st/8th which is bunkered front and over the back. * 335m 11th doglegs right after 180m off the tee with a creek which cuts across the fairway about 110m from the 2-tiered green which slopes to the right. *357m gentle dogleg right has a wide fairway and a large green which could improve with a few bunkers. * The newer holes (9, 10 & 11) have shrubs and stake trees no higher than 1 metre, but over time will grow tall. Played here 23/11/2010 with $10 green fees. Located in the centre of town Cobden is very well maintained and is far better conditioned that nearby courses within 15 minutes drive (Camperdown, Terang and Timboon). I highly recommend a round here.
